1 can (16 ounce size) pork and beans
***The "Fixin's"***
1/2 cup sloppy joe sauce
1 1/2 tablespoon real bacon bits
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon molasses
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon white vinegar
0.33 teaspoon black pepper


Combine the ingredients for the Fixin's in a small jar, cover, and refrigerate at least a 1/2-hour. (This allows the flavors to "meld").

At "bean" time, empty the can of beans into a small saucepan, and stir in the pre-made Fixin's. Over low-medium heat, bring the Beans and Fixin's to a simmer, stirring occasionally. When heated through --- serve!

Added some smoked sausage to this and it was da bomb! Never thought that a can of beans could taste so good.

I haven't tried this yet...I plan on it. I do have a suggestion. I would use a can of Baked Beans like Bush's Original. I suggest this because the "Fixins" were added to a can of Big Johns Baked Beans that was attached under the fixins. That is what I plan on trying.

Not very much li8ke the original "Big John's" beans. However, it isn't bad as a different beans recipe.

We added 1/4 pound smoked boston butt per pound of beans. They were absolutely divine. people have talked about them for the 2 years we've been serving them at the lake for our July 4th celebration!!!!!

Very easy to make - excellent flavors - not just beans from a can. I did reduced liquid a tad the second time I made them (drained the beans) "Big John's!"

Not even close to the original recipe. It's over-powered by the Manwich sauce, not sweet enough, and way too much pepper!
