Sherri's Baked Beans

Such an unusual blend of beans and sauce ingredients makes a stepped up version of regular baked beans. So delicious!

We wanted to post Sherri’s Baked Beans recipe in time for your Labor Day celebration. It is terrific with barbeque and many other types of foods. The combination of different types of beans baked in a sweet barbeque sauce that you make yourself with ingredients you probably have in your cupboard makes for a very easy but absolutely delicious and out of the ordinary baked bean dish.

When friends invited a group of us over for a potluck dinner, the meal was so good that we were all trading recipes after eating. We are happy to share our friend Sherri’s baked bean recipe. Don’t be frightened off by the lima and butter beans in this recipe. They provide an interesting texture and color and the tasty barbeque sauce makes the taste of each type of bean indistinguishable from each other. Neither Glenn or I normally like lima beans, but we love them in this recipe. When we make this recipe, we always include all of the types of beans when it would be easy to leave them out, it is just that good!.

Sherri’s Baked Beans are quite easy to prepare. Fry the bacon and crumble it, then mix everything together and bake. Easy. Just make sure you put it together early enough that the beans have plenty of time to bake, especially if you are using frozen beans. Thaw them out before you use them or add extra time to the baking time to make sure the beans all get done.

If it appears that the beans are getting too dry when you stir them part way through the cooking process, add a couple of tablespoons of water and put a cover over the pan for the remainder of the baking time. We have never had a problem with it being too dry.

1.    Preheat oven to 300o F. In a frying pan, cook bacon in a single layer until browned, but not quite crisp, with most of the fat rendered out. Fry the bacon in batches if necessary. Remove each batch to paper towels to cool and drain. Once cooled, crumble the bacon into ½” chunks. Chop the onion.


2.     Place the bacon pieces, chopped onion and all of the other ingredients into a large bowl and mix together well.

3.    Grease a baking dish large enough to hold entire mixture. Spoon the bean mixture into the baking dish and bake in the oven for 3 to 3 ½ hours, until the lima and butter beans are completely cooked through. Stir the baked beans halfway through the cooking time, taking care to not get burned, to allow top beans to cook in the liquid below the top. Serve hot when beans are cooked through.
