A slow-cooked baked bean recipe rumored to originate in a small town jail when the sheriff's wife made this recipe for the inmates. This is an all-day affair.



  • 12 pound Bacon, diced into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 cup Yellow Onion, diced
  • 4 cans Canned Baked Beans
  • 14 ounces Ketchup
  • 14 cup Dijon Mustard
  • 12 pound Light Brown Sugar
  • 18 cup Worcestershire Sauce

Step 1

Mix all ingredients.


  • 2 slices Yellow Onion
  • 6 Whole Cloves

Step 2

Spray a large casserole with non-stick cooking spray. Spread bean mixture. Top with the onion slices. Stick cloves in onion slices.

Step 3

Bake 7 hours at 250-degrees. Tops will carmelize and be crunchy.
