Hearty Baked Beans

Cooking for 2 Magazine

Servings: 2

Old-fashioned baked-bean flavor gets jazzed up with garlic, brown sugar and mustard in our Test Kitchen’s easy, downsized version of this family favorite.



1 small onion, chopped

1 bacon strip, chopped

¼ teaspoon minced garlic

1 can (8 ounces) pork and beans

¾ cup canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

teaspoon ground mustard

Cooking Method

    Combine all in a small skillet, sauté the onion, bacon and garlic until onion is tender; drain. Stir in the pork and beans, kidney beans, brown sugar, vinegar and mustard. Cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Transfer to a 2-cup baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.
