For this baked beans recipe, I made sure to include some of the very best Sugardale® Hickory Smoked Bacon.  Sugardale Foods is a family-owned company and has been in business for nearly a century and all of its products are proudly made in the USA!  Sugardale Hickory Smoked Bacon is made using a historic and secret blend of ingredients and has delighted bacon lovers for nearly a century with the perfect blend of smoke and sweetness.  That wonderful blend of smoke and sweetness is the perfect compliment to this baked beans recipe. This Sugardale Hickory Smoked Bacon is their most popular variety, but they also offer Thick Sliced, Extra Thick Sliced, Center Cut, Applewood Smoked, Peppered, Lower Sodium and Pre-Cooked Ready Bacon.  All of these are perfect for breakfast, sandwiches and salads, or wrapped around a juicy steak. Here are the easy steps to making this fantastic baked beans recipe:

Step 1: Chop and Brown the Bacon

I used my big Dutch oven to brown the bacon, but you can also use a large skillet or even your slow cooker, should it have a browning feature.  I then transferred the bacon out of the pot, and on to a plate lined with paper towels.  I drained the majority of the grease, but left about two tablespoons at the bottom of the pot to saute the peppers and onions.  It’s a great way to add some extra smokey flavor to additional ingredients.

Step 2: Add the beans, peppers, onions and bacon back to the pot

Using the same Dutch oven that I browned the bacon and sauteed the peppers and onions, I then added the three varieties of beans, along with the bacon, peppers and onions.  (Make sure you’re using a large pot or pan, as this recipe makes rather large quantity!  It really is perfect for a potluck, cookout or barbecue!) In a separate bowl, make the sauce by combining the tomato sauce, brown sugar, molasses, vinegar, Worcestershire, and spices.  Stir together well, and then pour directly into the pot with the bacon and beans.  Stir all of the ingredients well.  From here, the beans are ready to heat. There are three ways you can cook these beans: Stovetop, Oven or Slow Cooker.  The cook times are specified in the recipe.
