These baked beans are on crack! With root beer mixed in as well as bacon and then more bacon on top, you might find yourself second-guessing that can of beans.
Step by Step Directions
Preheat oven to 400F.
Cook bacon in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat until crisp; remove and drain on paper towels. Reserve 2 tablespoons bacon grease in the skillet and turn up to high heat. Add onion and pepper to the bacon drippings and sauté for 5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Stir in beans, crumbled bacon, and remaining ingredients. Top with remaining 6 slices of bacon.
Place skillet in the oven, uncovered, for 1 hour or until sauce is thickened and bacon is crisp (place under broiler for a minute if necessary).
