  • 1 large onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 16-ounce cans pork and beans
  • 1 cup root beer not diet

  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp whole grain mustard
  • ½ cup molasses
  • ½ teaspoon hot sauce


  • Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp; remove and drain on paper towels, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in skillet. Crumble bacon.
  • Sauté diced onion in hot bacon drippings in skillet over high heat 5 minutes or until tender; add minced garlic and cook for another minute. Stir together onion, garlic, crumbled bacon, beans, and remaining ingredients.
