This is my families tried and true holiday bean recipe, although each of us has their own twist on it. I like mine with a little more bite and my sisters like theirs sweeter. Mama likes fewer wieners and more onion. It is very versatile and is just as good cold as hot.
This recipe can be doubled or halved, whatever you need to feed your bunch. Feel free to adjust the amounts of ingredients to your taste or make substitutions like ketchup for tomato sauce.
- 1-#10 can of pork and beans ( we have Showboat brand in our area)
- 12-15 wieners, chopped into 1/2″ pieces
- 1-onion, chopped
- 1-15oz. can tomato sauce
- 2 or 3 T yellow mustard
- 2 or 3 T pancake syrup (Blackburns brand is great cause it is really thick, dark Karo will also work, or whatever you have, experiment)
- 1 or 2 T garlic, powder or fresh minced
Mix all ingredients into a casserole and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes or until bubbly and thickened.
Can also be cooked in the crockpot. Start on high for 3-4 hours and then on low for several more until ready to serve.
Can be made without wieners.
