Gramma Beaton's Brown Sugar Beans

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This recipe was given to me by my Aunt Joan, who got it from her neighbor. It is deceptively simple, but so good. I just took it to a potluck and got rave reviews: 'These beans are awesome!'

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Place beans in a Dutch oven or large casserole dish. Mix in bacon, brown sugar, and onion; season with salt and pepper. Add just enough water to barely cover the beans.
  • Cover, and bake for 6 to 8 hours in the preheated oven. Add more water if necessary.

  • Slow cooker instructions:

    Place beans, bacon, onion, salt and pepper into a slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH for 6 to 8 hours, or until beans are tender.
