Best way yet to make canned beans into a homemade sensation. Dice 4 big onions and bring to a boil with 1 c. brown sugar, 1/2 c. vinegar, 1 can or package real bacon bits and a pinch of hot dried mustard. Add a chopped green pepper if you like. Cover, reduce heat, simmer 20 minutes.
Mix into 4 cans beans (preferably a mix of kidney, pinto, small red, navy
, what have you) and bake until bubbly. Serves 8 to 12. Canned beans cost more, weigh more but can save the day when you don't have time or fuel
to cook dried beans.
