Mom's Baked Beans (from Elaine Wiggins)

Use a deep 4-quart casserole dish that has been sprayed w/ PAM.

Van Kamp's Pork & Beans--Use a 3lb 5oz can + a 1lb 15oz can. Drain off some of the juice, but reserve it in case you need to add any back in later.

Half a pound of bacon that has been partially fried & cut into pieces--fry bacon about half way or just enough to get rid of some of the fat. Bacon strips should still be pretty raw-looking. They will crisp up in the oven.

1 12-oz bottle Heinz Chili Sauce

1 pound box light brown sugar

Stir together beans, chili sauce & brown sugar. Put into casserole dish. Cover top with partially cooked bacon pieces. Bake in a preheated 300 F (yes, three hundred degrees) for 3 to 3-1/2 hours uncovered. If beans start looking too thick halfway through baking time, add some of the reserved Van Kamp's pork & bean juice.

PS: Mother never put onion in her baked beans, but I don't see why you couldn't add some for a bit of additional flavor.
PPS: If anyone needs to serve 75 people, I have the amounts to serve that large a large crowd. Just let me know & I will post!
