Hawaiian Baked Beans

The 2016 NFL Draft started.  As NFL Teams select their next group of players, I am thinking about tailgate food. Watching the selected rookies don their team’s hat had me craving brisket, potato salad and baked beans.  What else says tailgate like that?

Here is how I turn canned vegetarian baked beans into Hawaiian baked beans.  They are so delicious, you might pass on the burger.


Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 60 minutes
Yield: 10 – 12 servings

1 cup pineapples
1/2 cup yellow onion
1/4 cup coconut oil
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 28 oz. can of baked beans
(I use Bush’s vegetarian)
Aluminum foil
Vegetable or chopping knife
Mixing spoons
Cutting board                              
2 quart saucepan                      

13 x 9 baking pan


1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Chop one cup of fresh pineapple and 1/2 cup of yellow onion.

Pineapples                         Onions
3. Warm coconut oil on medium heat.  Add yellow onion and sautée until soft.
4. Add pineapples and brown sugar to pan.  Cook on low heat for 5 – 7 minutes.
5. Add baked beans, sprinkle dry mustard and stir.
6. Pour entire baked beans mixture into baking pan and cover with aluminum foil.

7. Bake for 60 minutes.




Ready for game time!  What do you think of this recipe?

Get in the game!
