Sweet brown sugar baked beans with bacon and weed
The cold weather is here, which means that it’s time to break out those incredible comfort food recipes that take a while to cook because now the extra heat is very much appreciated. Baked beans are the perfect option if you’re looking for a filling meal that is relatively easy to toss together, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to infuse this fantastic dish.
How to enjoy baked beans
These homemade baked beans are mildly sweet so that they can be enjoyed as a main course all on their own, but they’re even better when served as a side to your favourite meat or on top of a thick layer of rice. If you’re feeling lazy and only looking for garnish ideas that will spice things up, then a sprinkle of cheese, a dollop of sour cream, or a pinch of green onions will go a long way to changing both the taste and texture.
Sweet bacon baked beans recipe
These baked beans allow beginner cannabis chefs to cheat a little by using canned ingredients rather than doing all of the hard work of soaking and making beans from scratch. Which saves hours of work, and results in a delicious bowl that tastes nothing like what you’d expect from store-bought alternatives. Plus it’ll get you high, which is a bonus in the colder months when there isn’t much else to do.
Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 2 hours
- 54 ounces of canned pork and beans
- 10 bacon slices (thick cut)
- 1 yellow cooking onion (diced)
- 1 green bell pepper (diced)
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup molasses
- ¼ cup cider vinegar
- 4 tablespoons ketchup
- 2 tablespoons cannabutter
- 2 teaspoons dry mustard
- Large saucepan
- Paper towel
- Deep skillet
- Wooden spoon
- 13x9 baking dish
Partially cook the bacon slices in a saucepan until they are firm but still soft. (avoid browning)
Once the bacon slices are done, transfer them over to a paper towel to remove the excess grease.
Let the bacon slices cool until they can be comfortably handled and then cut them into ½ inch strips.
Preheat the oven to 325 F, and set the rack to the middle position.
Add the cannabutter to a deep skillet, along with the diced onion and green pepper.
Saute the vegetables until the onions are translucent and soft, which should take approximately five minutes.
Now toss in all of the remaining ingredients and give everything a good stir before bringing the mixture to a steady simmer over medium heat.
Dump the beans into a 9x13 baking dish and then cook them in the oven for anywhere from 2-3 hours. You’ll know that it’s done, when it reaches the thickness that you like best, as the longer it cooks, the less water will be left behind.
These delicious homemade baked beans can last for up to four days if they’re stored in an airtight container in the fridge, and placed there only after they cool to room temperature, but if you’re looking for a longer-term solution, then you can also freeze them for up to six months. This way, you can have a super easy to reheat edible meal anytime the mood strikes.
