A comforting bake of pork and beans gets sweet, tangy and smoky with a few simple amendments. Stir in some chopped onion, a dab of bacon grease, some brown sugar and a dollop of ketchup. Put strips of bacon over the top and pop it in the oven.

- 4 (15 ounce) cans baked beans with pork
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 3 tablespoons bacon grease
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
