    Bourbon Baked Beans

    I was at my niece's H.S. grad party yesterday and her mother served some
    bourbon baked beans.....she used Beam White....I think she went a little heavy on the bourbon...it was definitely the dominant flavor...but it was ok...rich with dark sweetness. Not sure how many of the younger kids ate it ....or the effects!

    Re: Bourbon Baked Beans

    Hmmmm. My better half makes Kahlua baked beans whenever we barbeque ribs (or pretty much anything else). Maybe I can get her to substitute bourbon next time. I already have Jack Daniel's as a component of my special secret family recipe for barbeque sauce. (Don't ask).

    Cheers!

    Re: Bourbon Baked Beans

    I often add a splash of bourbon to baked beens. I usually use something I don't realy care for that is high proof and therefor quite concentrated in flavor, such as '05 WLW.

    Re: Bourbon Baked Beans

    A couple of days ago my wife made bourbon baked beans by substituting some Joshua Brook 8 y-o, 90 proof KSBR for the Kahlua. It was a fiasco. The alcohol must have cooked off completely, and there was no bourbon flavor. The beans had the consistency of engine oil sludge.

    Jono: I wonder if you can get your hands on your sister/sister-in-law's recipe?

    Cheers,

    Re: Bourbon Baked Beans

    I will ask her....then post the info...it may be a while..but I will get it.

    She had some kind of sausage in the mix too.

    This looks similar

    http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._34512,00.html

    2 (16-ounce) cans baked beans, drained (recommended: Bush's)
    1/2 cup chili sauce (recommended: Heinz)
    1/4 cup bourbon (recommended: Jim Beam)
    1/4 cup real bacon pieces (recommended: Hormel)
    1 tablespoon molasses (recommended: Grandma's)
    2 tablespoons brown sugar

    Combine all ingredients in medium saucepan. Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce to medium and continue boiling for 10 minutes. Serve hot.

    Here is one with coffee added:

    Re: Bourbon Baked Beans

    I always use bourbon in my beans.... I make loaded bean recipe..

    2 large cans of Bush's Baked beans
    1 can of Rotel Tomatoes with juice
    2 tbl. of good chile powder (Pendry's is what I use)
    3 Tbl. Dijon mustard
    1 lb. of chopped smoked brisket (pulled pork will work here also)
    3 tbl. Molassas (spg??)
    2 oz. Bourbon
    1 large onion chopped and lightly sauteed

    Stir well in a throw away pan. I then smoke mine in a smoker withhickory for about 2 hours at 225F uncovered. You can also bake them in the oven at about 275F for a few hours... mighty good!!

    Re: Bourbon Baked Beans

    jono & cigarnv,

    Thanks, fellas. SWMBO has looked over both recipes and pronounced them as do-able. We'll try one or both soon. Real soon--my mouth is watering already.

    Cheers,
