Family Favorite From Aunt - Baked Beans

During the holidays, I got to eat some of our family's favorite dishes. Aunt's Baked Beans fit that description. A staple at Christmas eve dinner since, well, since we started celebrating at my parents house.

I would recommend this recipe to anyone looking for a tasty, easy, baked bean recipe.

Aunt's Baked Beans
1 large jar of Randall Great Northern Beans
2 large onions, chopped (she used two very large sweet (Vidalia) onions)
1 lb. good bacon cut in 1" slices (optional: fry a bit to get fat out but don't crisp)
1 cup brown sugar, packed
3 Tablespoons dry mustard (approximate amount) (McCormick's .85 oz. is a bit over 3 Tbs.)
24 oz. Ketchup (about 3/4 of a 32oz. bottle)

Preheat Oven to 300 Degrees
Mix all of the ingredients together completely
Pour into in a casserole dish no smaller than 3 qt. capacity or it may bubble over
Bake uncovered in a 300 degree preheated oven for 3-4 hours (she usually bakes for closer to 4 hours)
