Pineapple Baked Beans – a favorite side dish for barbecues! Beans with bacon, crushed pineapple, and brown sugar are baked until the sauce is thick and delicious.
Hi guys! Can you believe June is almost over? Summer is flying by and I’m not happy about it. I just want it to stay summer forever!
Like, I’m already signing kids up for fall sports and getting back to school emails and ugh, I’m not ready to be thinking about fall.
But we still have a lot of summer left and I have a great barbecue side dish for you today. If you love bacon and pineapple and baked beans, you are going to love these!
How To Make Pineapple Baked Beans
These Pineapple Baked Beans start out a lot like my Root Beer Baked Beans – with cans of pork and beans! I just think they are more flavorful than a can of plain ol’ baked beans.
The pork and beans are mixed with cooked bacon, sautéed onion, and crushed pineapple. You don’t need to drain the pineapple but the more pineapple juice you get in there, the more saucy your beans will be in the end.
And the rest is all super simple! Ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Mix it all together and bake for about 45 minutes until the sauce is super thick and delicious!
It’s a great no fuss side dish and it’s also a pretty cheap side dish so it is perfect if you are feeding a crowd. But you may need to double it because it will go fast!
What To Serve with Pineapple Baked Beans
Cheyenne Burgers – grilled burgers topped with cheddar cheese, freshly fried crispy onion rings, and an easy homemade smoky barbecue sauce. These are so good with all the different textures and the heat from the barbecue sauce.
Hawaiian BBQ Ribs – these ribs are made in the oven and they are basically fool proof. The ribs are cooked in a sweet and spicy Hawaiian-inspired sauce made with hoisin sauce, soy sauce, pineapple juice, fresh ginger, and sriracha.
Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders – the easiest way to serve burgers to a crowd! Hawaiian rolls are topped with ground beef, bacon, cheese, onions, and pickles in a ketchup and mustard sauce. A savory glaze gets poured over the rolls and they are baked until golden and delicious.
