KFC BBQ Baked Beans

Here's a replica recipe that's great for a cookout, or as your cool cloned contribution to a party. You can add everything to the dish ahead of time and bake it when you get to the shindig. Just find yourself a couple cans of the small white beans (not pinto beans or great northern beans), and the rest is easy. Throw all of the ingredients into a casserole dish and let the sucker bake, while you get in on the festivities.

2 15-ounce cans small white beans (with liquid)
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons white vinegar
4 teaspoons minced fresh onion
2 pieces cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
dash pepper
dash garlic powder

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Pour entire contents of two 15-ounce cans of beans into a covered casserole dish. 

3. Combine the water with the cornstarch in a small bowl until cornstarch dissolves. Stir mixture into the beans.

4. Stir the remaining ingredients into the beans and cover the dish.

5. Bake for 90 minutes or until sauce thickens. Stir every 30 minutes. Let beans sit for 5 to 10 minutes after removing them from the oven before serving.

Makes 6 servings.

I just did a side-by-side comparison with this recipe along with a "fresh from my local KFC" serving of their BBQ Baked Beans. The KFC beans were sweeter and had a flavor more reminiscent of BBQ sauce. This recipe didn't have that BBQ sauce tang and sweetness to it.

This was a big hit with the whole family. I couldn't find small white beans so I used canned white kidney beans. My family wish I had made more.

Don't waste your money on all of those expensive BBQ cookbooks if you are looking for a baked bean recipe. I have just made this recipe from the book for the first time and I have to say that it is the best baked beans that I have ever made. This dish really is the bees knees.
Perfect clone!
