Beans Baked With Bacon and Onion

Outlander Kitchen

These beans are first soaked overnight, then boiled in plain water before being flavored and baked, low and slow, in the oven. It's a simple recipe, but, like all dried beans, they take some time to cook. Luckily, it's almost all hands-off time, so you need to plan in advance but you don't need to babysit the pot.

Baked beans are one of our staples, and I am certainly not above grabbing a can for a quick and easy side to go with hot dogs or other grilled or smoked meats. But if you have the time and inclination, it's easy enough to make them yourself.
