Root Beer BBQ Baked Beans

At one of my recent Scrumptious Sunday parties, Kris at Sugar Cookies to Peterbilts shared with me the recipe for Root Beer BBQ Baked Beans.  I KNEW that my husband would love these, and I just had to make them.   

Here is the recipe that I used: 

Root Beer BBQ Baked Beans (Source: Mary Swanson's Big Hearted Cookbook) 

Root Beer BBQ Baked Beans | Addicted to Recipes
6 slices of baked, cooked crisp, patted dry, and crumbled
1 onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
3 x 398 mL cans of baked beans (as per Kris’ suggestion, I used Bush’s)
1 cup of root beer
2 tablespoons molasses
½ teaspoon dry mustard
1 clove crushed garlic
Couple dashes red chili pepper flakes
1 celery stick, whole

In a large saucepan, cook the bacon (until crisp) and onions (until transparent).  Remove the bacon, dry and crumble.  Add back into the saucepan. 

Add in all the remaining ingredients.

Bring the mixture to a boil (over medium-high heat).  Once the mixture is boiling, reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 20-30 minutes.  The beans will thicken during this time.  Remove the celery.  Serve and enjoy! 

As I suspected, these were a huge hit, especially with my hubby.  Our oldest loved them too.  Very tasty, and a great accompaniment for a BBQ.  Yum!  Thank you Kris!
