Prep Time20 mins
Total Time5 hrs 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs yellow eye beans
  • 1 lb bacon
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Instructions

  • Soak beans overnight in cold water. Drain.
  • Simmer the beans in new water until tender, approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. Drain.
  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Arrange the beans in a large casserole dish, placing a portion of the beans in the bottom of dish, and layering them with bacon and onion.
  • In a saucepan, combine molasses, salt, pepper, dry mustard, ketchup, worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and pour over beans. Pour in just enough water to cover the beans. Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil.
  • Bake 4 to 5 hours, until beans are tender. Remove the lid about halfway through cooking, adding more water if necessary to prevent the beans from getting too dry.
