The Best Baked Beans
Beans are great served hot or cold, plus the recipe can be multiplied to serve a crowd. Those are the reasons that baked beans are the perfect addition to a potluck dinner.
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1/4 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 14-ounce (398 ml) cans gluten free baked beans (I used Bush's Best Vegetarian Beans)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup your favourite gluten free barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • (optional: 4 slices bacon, fried & chopped)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Saute the onions and green peppers until tender.
  4. Add the beans (don't drain them), brown sugar, barbecue sauce, apple cider vinegar, mustard, and paprika. If using - stir in the fried bacon. Stir to combine.
  5. Pour the beans into a baking dish, making sure to leave some room so that the beans will not boil over.
  6. Cover with foil and bake in preheated oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. You could also heat them in the slow cooker for 2-3 hours on high.
  7. Serve hot or cold.
