Baked beans are always a great barbeque side dish. Normally you are at the mercy of sugar-laden canned baked beans or you need to plan a full day ahead to make them. Today I share with you my super simple almost-instant baked bean recipe. I’ve made these beans with a moment’s notice at least a dozen times this summer. They travel well and are a great contribution to potlucks. I also make baked beans “from scratch” (that is, from dry beans) and you can find the recipe for that version (as well as this one) in my Good and Easy Eats ebook.
Super Easy Baked Beans
2 15 oz. cans of beans- navy, Great Northern or pinto
2 Tbsp. molasses
2 Tbsp. ketchup (check the ingredient list to verify that it is made with whole, natural ingredients)
1 tsp. prepared mustard
1/4- 1/2 sea salt
opt: 2 Tbsp. dried minced onion
Heat all ingredients in a saucepan for at least 20 minutes before serving. That’s it!
