The Best Baked Beans Ever

This is an adaptation of a recipe by Pam Anderson for The Pioneer Woman.

It really is GOOD.

For enough for two:

1 slice bacon, halved

2-3 T onion, diced

1 T chopped green pepper

1 can (16 oz) pork and beans

1/8 c bbq sauce

1 T brown sugar (unless you are using pork and beans that are already heavy in sweetness)

1 T cider vinegar

1/3 t dry mustard

Adjust oven rack to lower middle position and preheat to 325 degrees.

Fry bacon in a large, deep saute pan until bacon has partially cooked.  Remove bacon from pan and drain on paper towels.

Add onions and peppers to dripping in pan and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.  Add beans and remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer.

Pour flavored beans into a greased ovenproof pan (I used a small casserole.) Top with bacon, then bake until beans are bubbly and sauce is the consistency of pancake syrup, about 1 1/2 hours.  Let stand to thicken slightly and serve.
