Keri's Hog-Apple Baked Beans

by Keri

This recipe began life as APPLE PIE BAKED BEANS from somewhere on the web, but I think I've made enough changes to it now to claim it as my own.

This is my standard recipe for baked beans whenever I make them.

Serves:- 12 people
Preparation Time:- 30 minutes
Cooking Time:- 1 hour

Total Time:- 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 3 or 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 (16 oz) cans pork and beans, mostly drained (modified to 2 28-oz cans Bush's Baked Beans - see note below)
  • 1/2 c. Blues Hog BBQ Sauce (or other sweet-spicy favorite)
  • 1 lb. smoked leftover smoked pork or beef, more or less, or 1 lb crumbled cooked pork sausage
  • 1 can apple pie filling or peach pie filling
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. Mustard (prepared)
  • 1 tsp chipotle or cayenne powder (optional, to taste*)
  • 1 tsp Blues Hog barbecue rub (or your favorite rub)


Brown the bacon in a large pan or Dutch oven and when done remove the bacon from the pan.

Now and sauté the onion and green pepper in bacon grease for about 5 minutes until they start to soften and the onion turns translucent.

Mix in remaining ingredients and remove from the direct heat. Bake in the oven at 325ºF or 160ºC for 1 hour.

If you haven't got the time then revert back to the stove top and simmer for 30 minutes.

*This is a rather spicy recipe due to the chipotle/cayenne powder. Feel free to leave it out if you'll be feeding those who prefer a less spicy taste.

Wow Keri,

That sounds like a recipe that I need to try. Certainly the apple pie baked beans recipe has been around for a while but yeah, I have to agree with you that there's enough of your own stamp on this one to claim it as yours.

Truly great recipe
by: Ray

I used peach pie filling for the sweet! Teaspoon of instant coffee for the WTH! This recipe is a great one right out of the shoot, but it has a great potential for you to personalize and call it yours! Thanks Paul!
