Pineapple Baked Beans

My very favorite recipe for baked beans is this one (also below) but when I don't have time to prepare from scratch, Pineapple Baked Beans is an easy and delicious alternative.

Many years ago, my cousin, Tammy was married in Hawaii. Her sister hosted a reception on Tammy & Wayne's return with a Hawaiian theme and I shared this recipe with her.

Pineapple Baked Beans

2 Tbs. shortening
1/2 cup green pepper chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 16-oz cans pork and beans, drained
20 oz can pineapple chunks, drained
3/4 cup catsup
1/4 cup dark molasses
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1-2 Tbs. yellow mustard

Sauté onions and peppers in oil about 5 mins. Stir in beans, pineapple, catsup, molasses, brown sugar and mustard. Cover and cook over low heat for 20 minutes.

NOTE: This recipe makes a lot so you might want to half it.

I make this recipe, minus the pineapple and I am imagining that the pineapple would be a wonderful added treat to these baked beans~

That recipe is almost identical to mine, with the exception of the pineapple. I am going to try that. It sounds so good.

These would make a great topping for baked potatoes

I was reading the recipe and my mouth just won't stop watering. I think I may have drooled on my keyboard...lol Seriously those sound delicious

Marydon said...

Oh, my! I so love the dresser & mirrors. How beautiful your presentation of your decor. I am working on acquiring mirrors for our stair wall.

Your bean recipe sounds so yummy. I'll eat baked beans all day. Living in Hawaii for years, had not had this recipe over there, durnnit!

Have a great weekend ~

Melissa said...

My favorite side dish has always been baked beans..and I always love to try new recipes! =)

I was wondering...could you cook the recipe in a crock-pot on low for a few hours, and then add the pineapple 20 minutes before serving?

Sue said...

Thanks for sharing this recipe, DH was asking for baked beans I think I will try this one with the pineapple! I am now coping it.
Enjoy your weekend.

Carol said...

Both recipes look delicious! I can see more baked beans in my future, adding these two recipes to the try file.

I love to "doctor" canned baked beans also. I've never thought to add pineapple! I think I would love that! The few times I've had actual homemade baked beans, at friend's parties, were not too good. Which is why I've never thought to make my own. I'm going to look at your recipe and pin it for future use! Thanks!

Hanni said...

It is exciting receipt: pineapple and beans and also quick. I pinned it to my must cook list :)

Val said...

These sound like the best beans ever. A must try.

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

I love the pineapple in this recipe! Baked beans are a perennial favorite in our home.

Maggie Ann said...

I too will make this...it sounds delicioius! and...we just bought a gallon of pork & beans. Thank you!

Lizzy said...

My hubby is the baked bean lover in this house, but he wouldn't be happy with the pineapple addition. I, on the other hand, think it sounds marvelous! Maybe I can eat the fruit and he can have the beans?

Pondside said...

I love the sound of this. I think it would make a great pot of beans for a pot luck. I like this sort of dish that is delicious hot, but still alright as it cools down.

Tonya said...

I will have to try that with the pineapples!
I am always looking for ways to improve on recipes!
Ans thanks again for visiting my blog! :-)

Just a little something from Judy said...

I can't wait to make these beans for my family. Beans and pineapple sounds like a delicious combination. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
