My dearest friend who is now a missionary in Philippines gave this recipe to me years ago and I am so grateful that I have it. Because this is the best tasting baked beans, ever. So thanks to Barbara, now you will have this wonderful recipe, too!

Finely mince slices of bacon.

Brown bacon until crisp, drain the fat and add finely minced onion. Add Worcestershire mixture and add to beans.

After baking, top is caramelized a bit and comes this beautiful, glorious dish. Perfect accompaniment with any barbecue meats!
