Baked Beans for a Crowd

on May 28, 2012

This was absolutely the best thing at the wedding reception.  Everyone kept coming up to me asking how on earth I made the beans so delicious!!  I actually don’t make baked beans that often, so I didn’t really know what I was doing and just kinda threw them together, so I was pretty surprised they were so well received!  Anyway, it made enough to feed 100 people.


Baked Beans for a Crowd

100 servings

3 10# cans of baked beans (I got mine at Walmart- pretty sure they were Bush’s?)

1/2 lb. brown sugar

1 lb of bacon

1 onion, chopped

1 bottle BBQ sauce- I used KC Masterpiece Original

2 large bags of french fried onions (I got mine at Walmart)

Slice bacon into small pieces.  Cook over medium heat until brown and crispy.  Put onto a plate to drain and throw in the chopped onion.  Cook until tender.

In an 18 qt roaster, add the beans, onions, bacon, brown sugar, and BBQ sauce.  Stir to combine.  Cook on medium for 6 hours or until heated through.  Right before serving, add the bags of french fried onions and stir.
