These baked beans were shared with us by Abita Brewing Company. Unlike most root beer manufacturers, Abita sweetens its brew with pure Louisiana cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup.
- 6 ounces Abita® root beer
- 1 pound bacon, diced
- 1 large onion, diced
- 2 (12-ounce) cans baked beans
- ¼ cup barbecue sauce
- ½ tsp dry mustard
In a saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon. Remove and drain. Sauté onions 3–5 minutes or until translucent. Add bacon and remaining ingredients. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
