Old-fashioned baked-bean flavor gets jazzed up with garlic, brown sugar and mustard in our Test Kitchen’s easy, downsized version of this family favorite.


  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 bacon strip, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 can (8 ounces) pork and beans
  • 3/4 cup canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground mustard


  1. In a small skillet, saute onion and bacon until onion is tender; drain. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the pork and beans, kidney beans, brown sugar, vinegar and mustard. Cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Transfer to a 2-cup baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.
