Nan's Baked Beans
2 (28 oz) cans of Bush's Best Original Baked Beans (or adjust can size to number of servings needed)
1/2 Vidalia onion, cut into thin strips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9x13" casserole dish. Drain most of the juice from the beans and remove pieces of fat. Pour one can of beans into casserole dish and spread evenly. Squirt mustard and ketchup over beans (there's no measurements so I just make circles or loops covering the beans). Use a spatula or back of a spoon to spread/combine mustard and ketchup evenly. Add slices of onions.
Next, get a hand full of brown sugar and crumble with fingers over onions. Again, there's no measurement but if I had to guess how much I used I would say 1/3 cup or a little more. I like them sweet! Now it's time add the next can of beans. Pour contents of can #2 over onions. Repeat mustard and ketchup steps--don't forget to smooth out loops, or circles, or whatever you're calling them with a spatula or back of a spoon. No onions for this layer but do sprinkle with more brown sugar. Lay bacon slices on top.
Place in preheated oven and cook for approximately 45 minutes, or when beans are hot and bubbly.
