Quick & Easy Beer Beans
  • 4 strips bacon, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large can of baked beans
  • 3/4 cup dark beer (6 ounces of your favorite)
  • 1/4 cup pancake syrup (your favorite)
  • 1 tablespoon honeyshopping list
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • Salt and pepper to tasteshopping list
Fry the bacon in a large pot just until it starts to crisp. Drain all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings.
Sauté the onion and garlic in the reserved bacon drippings until soft.
Add the remaining ingredients and slowly simmer for about 30 minutes, or until thick.
