Think of this dish as classic baked beans turned all the way up to 11--sweet, smoky, and saucy, with extra richness from the slow-simmered beans. The starchiness from the cooked beans will help bind the casserole. Curry powder adds a hint of earthiness, but you can leave it out for a more straightforward flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Step 2

Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium-high 5 minutes or until crisp, stirring occasionally. Add onion; cook 4 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Combine bacon mixture, beans, ketchup, syrup, dry mustard, pepper, and curry powder, if using, in a large bowl. Spoon bean mixture into a 2-quart glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375°F for 45 to 50 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Carefully remove dish from oven; let beans stand 5 minutes before serving.
