4 10-oz Navy Bare Beans
1/2 cup maple syrup
4 Tbs molasses
4 Tbs brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 small, chopped onion
1 lb cooked, chopped bacon


Cook the bacon then chop and mix with beans and chopped onions. Place in a casserole dish. In a small bowl whisk together all remaining ingredients then pour over the beans, bacon and onion mixture, stirring gently until fully incorporated. Store with a lid in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. At least 3 hours before you want to eat preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Bake with the lid on for at least 2 hours until hot and bubbly. Gently stir every 30 minutes to keep beans moist and the flavor throughout.
