Aunt Cheri's Baked Beans

Hi there! Wow, I can't believe JULY was the last time I posted on here. Logging on after months is something like a breath of fresh air to be honest...

I took a break from blogging because I didn't really understand why I was doing it. But I've recharged and become more excited and now I know that I want to finish what I've started (if I will ever finish). It may take me a little longer to post on here, but my goal is to post family recipes so we can all enjoy them!

So enough of my rant, lets talk about these Baked Beans! I took these pictures last summer. But here I am finally posting them!

These are the ingredients you will need:

I would recommend sticking with the Bush's brand beans and Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce (at least that's what the pro, Aunt Cheri, told me).

These beans are a sort of legend in our family. They're up there with Grandma's Potato Salad and Mom's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Yep they're THAT good!

Not to be too sentimental, but sometimes growing up is kinda the worst. Why? Because sometimes I wish I could go back to those Sunday picnics on Grandma's back porch. I would savor those times where we would dunk our grilled chicken in a gallon of BYU ranch dressing and enjoy that homemade ice cream churning in the bucket.

Those times may be rare now, but there's always the future. So, here's to creating those same memories for the next generation. And you can bet that these amazing Baked Beans are going be there.

Cheri's Baked Beans
1 pound bacon, cut in 1 inch pieces
1 large white or yellow onion, chopped
3 cans, 16 oz. Bush Brand Pork n Beans, with juices
1 can, 15 oz. black beans, drained
1 can, 15 oz. pinto beans, drained
1 can, 15 oz. kidney beans, drained
1 cup Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 or 4 big squeezes of yellow mustard
3 or 4 dashes of liquid smoke

1) Preheat oven to 300 °F.
2) In a large oven-safe pot, cook bacon pieces until crispy. After cooked, remove the bacon from the pot and set aside. 
3) Discard most of the bacon grease except about a tablespoon. Cook the onion in the same pot in the remaining grease until soft. 
4) Add the rest of the ingredients (except cooked bacon). Taste the mixture for flavor, add more mustard, liquid smoke or brown sugar as desired. Bake in the oven for 2 to 4 hours. Remove and stir in bacon pieces right before serving. Enjoy! 




  1. I think that your recipe is really nice, but we have to remember that it will not be easy to find all ingredients at once. There are a lot of beans to be used.

  2. I think your dish is fantastic, but we must keep in mind that finding all of the components at the same time will be difficult. There are plenty of beans to go around.

  3. Online case study writer can be a great way to get started in the field, and it doesn't require any special qualifications. All you need is some creativity and the ability to write well. If you're looking for an easy way to get started, online case study writing is a great option.

  4. I highly recommend pay someone to write my assignment service for anyone who needs help with their accounting assignments. They have a team of experienced accountants who can help you with any type of assignment, from simple bookkeeping to complex financial reporting. They also offer a money-back guarantee, so you can be sure that you're getting a quality product. I used their service for my accounting class and I was very impressed with the quality of the work. The writer was able to understand my instructions and complete the assignment on time. I would definitely use their service again if I needed help with my accounting assignments.


  5. Crafting a well-structured essay demands time and effort. For those juggling various commitments, seeking help is a smart move.
