1 can 28oz vegetarian baked beans (I use Bush's) 1 stick butter 1/3 cup packed brown sugar 1/4 to 1/2 cup real bacon bits 1T Worcestershire sauce 1/3 cup sweet BBQ sauce 1/2 cup fresh chopped sweet onion
1. Remove the sauce at the top of the can of baked beans (the additions from the recipe ingredients will more than make up for it)
2. Sauté the onion in 1/2 a stick of butter
3. When onion is translucent, add baked beans, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, BBQ sauce, and bacon bits. Stir gently over a low heat.
4. Add the rest of the butter and stir.
Note - once again this is a recipe I have been making for many, many years. I now adjust ingredients up or down to taste. But this is a good beginning. Also, I use vegetarian baked beans because the sauce is thicker.
