Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Cut bacon into 1-inch pieces. Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until it is brown and crispy. Drain off all but 1-2 Tbsp of the bacon grease. If you’ll be baking your beans in a different vessel, go ahead and transfer the cooked bacon and remaining fat to your baking dish.

Cook Bacon


Drain cans Great Northern or navy beans well. Add them to the skillet and stir to combine with the bacon.

Add Beans


Add the ingredients for the BBQ sauce to the skillet: tomato sauce, tomato paste, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, molasses, Dijon mustard, smoked paprika, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and freshly cracked pepper.

Add BBQ Sauce Items


Stir the ingredients until everything is evenly combined. Transfer the beans to the preheated 350ºF oven.

Stir Together


Bake the beans for 60-75 minutes (uncovered), stirring once after 30 minutes of baking, and again at 60 minutes. If the sauce is nice and thick at 60 seconds, they’re done. If it’s still a bit liquidy, bake until the sauce is thick.
