  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL) molasses (or more to taste)
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) ketchup
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) brown sugar, lightly packed


Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Over medium heat, sauté bacon and onion in frying pan. Drain off any fat, then place in bean pot or 6 cup (1.5 L) oven safe baking dish.

Add remaining ingredients to bean pot or baking dish and mix together to combine.

Cover and bake for one hour, stirring occasionally.

If you don’t have any bacon on hand, you can use canned beans with pork instead of beans in tomato sauce. Skip step 2 of the recipe and combine all ingredients in a bean pot or baking dish as per the recipe!

For vegetarian beans, omit the bacon and combine all the ingredients in a bean pot or baking dish as per the recipe.
