Della's recipe for baked beans

Della's recipe for baked beans is a winner at our household. I think it will be in yours once you try it!


  • 2 Cans of Pork and Beans
  • 3 Slices of Bacon
  • 3 Tbls. Ketchup
  • 1 Tbl. Yellow Mustard
  • 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Chopped Celery
  • 1/3 Cup Chopped Onion


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fry the bacon until partially (not crispy yet) cooked and reserve drippings. Move bacon to paper towel. Add celery and onion to the reserved drippings. Cook until tender, approximately 6 minutes. In a baking dish combine the pork and beans, ketchup, mustard and brown sugar. Stir in the onion celery mixture. Lay the partially cooked bacon strips on top of bean mixture and bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes.

Cooks Notes:

Unfortunately for me, I have a hard time eating other peoples baked bean recipes after eating my wife’s. Don’t tell her I said so…..but it taste like my Mom’s! Course I tell her it’s better!
