Our baked beans are cooked mostly on the stovetop and then briefly broiled for crusty edges. If you want extra herby flavor, garnish with fresh thyme leaves.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler to high.

Step 2

Cook bacon in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, reserving drippings. Add onion and thyme sprigs to drippings in pan; sauté 3 minutes. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Stir in broth and remaining ingredients; reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, 10 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring occasionally. Discard thyme.

Step 3

Remove from heat; stir in bacon. Broil 4 minutes or until bubbly and edges are crusty.
