I know it may seem odd to add peaches to your beans, but, but, but, I promise it is not.

No babbling today because I have this feeling that tomorrow I will be doing a lot of that (exciting news!).

PS. I am SO ready for Friday, are you?

Baked beans are never something I thought I would be making. Sadly no one in my immediate family is into beans. I personally love them, but when it comes to making beans as a side dish to a family meal, beans were never an option.

That was until I heard my grandpa was coming to visit, Then I was like, “Oh my gosh, I get to make beans!! See, grandpa loves baked beans. If I recall correctly, he actually loves my Mimi’s baked beans best (Mimi is my dad’s mom, Grandpa is my mom’s dad), but I don’t have that recipe and I have had this idea for peach baked beans since the beginning of summer. So this was my chance, I was making beans!

And yes, I was pretty pumped.

PLUS the peaches have been so flipping good since the start of August. I pretty much could not wait to throw them into my beans.

This recipe is really so simple and quick to throw together. You start out by cooking some bacon (ah huh) in a big ol dutch oven until they are crisp and perfect. From there you literally just add all the other ingredients to the dutch oven (bacon stays in) and continue to bake. I’d say a good 45 minutes until the sauce is bubbly and thickened.

Yum, right?

My grandpa thought so, and guys, so did my dad!! Yay!! I tried to get my mom to eat the beans by serving them with freshly made hot popovers. She ate the popovers (like three actually), but didn’t even try the beans.

I mean, how lame is that???

Oh but then I fed gramps a kind of spicy fruit salsa and I think I ruined his taste buds for the night. Thinking maybe not everyone is all that into the hot spices like my dad. However, I also think he may have gotten a red fresno seed. Thinking that maybe the second red fresno (with a few seeds still intact) was probably not my best decision for that salsa either.

Oops!

But hey, I served this pork and that was a HUGE hit all around…just without the (double) chili salsa.

So what did I serve for dessert??? Next week people. Next week.

    Unbelievable recipe. I made it for the first time in 2018 and have not stopped. Rave reviews every time. The only thing I do differently is omit any meat as I typically try to keep most of my sides vegetarian. .. i’ve received so many requests for this recipe! I’ve received so many requests for this recipe from my guests!

    So I was just looking over old issues of Cooking Light and came across a recipe for Bourbon Peach Baked beans! Looks like they copied your recipe since yours was published in 2015 and theirs came out in 2017. Didn’t know if you were aware of that?

    1. Hey Cynthia! I am sure they probably developed their own recipe and ours are just similar…at least that is what I hope! Thank you for letting me know. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan
