Marcie's home made baked brown beans

These beans are just awesome...they are simple to make, you just have to plan the day before. I serve these beans with a tortiere and a salad.

  • 2 cups navy beans
  • 2 large Spanish onions diced (to those of you who tried to make this dish with 21 onions, I apologize for the typo)!!
  • 1/2 lb bacon


  • 2 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 5 tbsp molasses
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water

Rinse and soak beans on cold water overnight

Next morning, drain and cover with fresh water and boil for 3/4 hr. Once boiling reduce the heat to medium to keep boiling.

Mix sauce together...

When beans are done, DO NOT DRAIN....

Use 9by 13 pan -put 1/2 bacon and 1/2 the onion on bottom of the dish. Scoop 1/2 the beans over the onion and bacon and use some of the bean water.

Repeat using remaining beans.

Slowly pour the sauce over the beans. Liquid should cover the beans...if not , use some of the liquid from the boiled beans.

Cover tightly with foil and bake for 4 hours.. remove foil and bake for 2 more hrs. Add more bean water as necessary to keep moist.
