Easy Dutch Oven Baked Beans

These baked beans are very tasty, easy and quick to make, and make great leftovers (but you probably won’t have any left over, since they taste so good!). If you are new to using your Dutch oven, this is a great recipe to start with.


1 lb Bacon

4 cans of pork and beans

1 tablespoon mustard

1/4 cup catsup

1 onion, chopped

1/2 cup brown sugar

3 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce

Cut bacon into 1-2 inch pieces. Heat the Dutch oven and then cook the bacon in the Dutch oven. When done, drain the oil. Add the pork and beans, mustard, catsup, chopped onion, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Cover and cook in the coals until heated through and bubbling, approximately 30 minutes.

The only real preparation these take is cutting the bacon and chopping the onion, so this dish is ideal for camping. You could make things even easier by cooking the bacon and chopping the onion at home and then putting everything together at camp.

These make a great side dish to hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, almost any camp meal. You can do them at home, also, either with your Dutch oven or using another baking dish. Precook the bacon and freeze and keep the cans of pork and beans around and you have a dish you can throw together when you need something easy and quick. You can easily make more by doubling or tripling the recipe, making it a great dish when you have to take something to a family, church, or neighborhood potluck.
