How to make canned baked beans:

Start with four 16.5-ounce cans or two 28-ounce cans of Original Recipe canned baked beans, like Bush's.

Gather the remaining ingredients:

  • bacon
  • onion
  • molasses
  • Spicy brown mustard (can be substituted for yellow mustard)
  • Worcestershire
  • brown sugar
  • ketchup
  • A teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with a little spice is optional and not pictured.
  • Brown the bacon and cook the onion.
  • Combine everything in a 4-quart baking dish.  Save a little bacon to sprinkle over the top.
