The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays-Baked Beans

Pioneer Woman-Baked Beans | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

If someone was to tell you they made a big batch of baked beans in the morning before work would you think they were crazy?!

I did just that one morning! But after tasting these beans from The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays and seeing how simple it was to put these together, I didn’t think I was crazy. It was genius!

These beans are so simple to make and so delicious, full of tender bell peppers and bursting with BBQ pizazz, they taste like you’ve spent hours in the kitchen making them.

And oh, the beautiful bacon strips on top…
