Mapley Baked Beans
1 small onion, diced
2 cans (16 ounces) of pork and beans Lately, I have been using Bush's beans Country Style, or Maple Baked Beans.
1/2 Log Cabin Syrup (or other maple flavored syrup)
2 Tablespoons of catsup
1 Tablespoon of mustard
1/2 teaspoon of hot pepper sauce
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cook the bacon in the microwave - generally one minute per slice. I use the Wegmans low salt, low fat bacon. Reserve the drippings. Saute' the onion in the bacon drippings. Pour beans into a casserole dish. Stir in the crumbled bacon and onion, syrup, catsup, mustard, and hot pepper sauce. Mix well. Bake for 45 minutes at 400 degrees until beans are hot and bubbly.
This makes about 4 cups of beans. For a larger crowd, I recommend doubling the recipe. When I take these to dinners, they are always a hit!
