Sometimes we need a different side and these are it! This recipe is adapted from the blog Scissors and Spatulas. These beans are sweet and tangy and so good. They are perfect for the upcoming weather change to spring and summer with your favorite grilled meat and a side of BBQ sauce! Here’s the recipe:
- 2-3 slices of bacon chopped
- 1/2 small onion chopped
- 1 clove of garlic minced
- 1 can of pork and beans
- 1 can of green beans
- 1 can of light kidney beans
- 1 can of butter beans
- 1/2 to 1 cup of brown sugar (adjust your how sweet you want it)
- 1/2 cup of white vinegar
- 1-2 tablespoons of mustard
- 1-2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce (optional)
Cook chopped bacon pieces in non stick pot or spray pot with oil spray. Add onions and garlic and cook til translucent. Pour out excess fat leaving about 1 tablespoon. Add brown sugar, vinegar and mustard. Drain all cans of beans ECXEPT pork and beans. Add beans to liquid mixture. I also add garlic and onion powder and a little salt and pepper but it’s optional. Taste and add brown sugar or vinegar depending on how sweet and/or tangy you like them. Let beans simmer in liquid for 10-15 min. Add Bbq sauce if desired.
