Baked Beans?

I'm doing Fathers Day Dinner for my Hubby and my Grandpa. I'm wanting to make some home made baked beans in my oven if possible, I'd use my crock pot but counter space is very limited.
Any recipes would be appreciated.

  • Cont..
    Soak beans overnight in cold water. Simmer the beans in the same water until tender, approximately 1 to 2 hours. Drain and reserve the liquid.
    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
    Arrange the beans in a 2 quart bean pot or casserole dish by placing a portion of the beans in the bottom of dish, and layering them with bacon and onion.
    In a saucepan, combine molasses, salt, pepper, dry mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and pour over beans. Pour in just enough of the reserved bean water to cover the beans. Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil.
    Bake for 3 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until beans are tender. Remove the lid about halfway through cooking, and add more liquid if necessary to prevent the beans from getting too dry

  • Add remaining bean liquid. Stir well; bake until beans are soft and liquid is nearly absorbed, 1 1/2 to 2 hours more. Add water as needed. Uncover casserole during the last 30 minutes of baking. Serve hot. Makes 8 side-dish servings or 6 as a main dish
