½lbthick cut bacon, sliced into 2 inch slices
Preheat oven to 325° F.
Place all ingredients except half of the bacon in a large bowl and stir well to combine.
Pour into greased 9 by 13-inch (or similar) casserole dish. Top with the rest of the bacon in rows in a single layer.
Place casserole dish on larger baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake for 3 hours, or until bacon is caramelized and beans are bubbly and thick. Serve immediately.
Leftovers can be kept in the fridge for 3-4 days and reheated in a 325° oven for 10-15 minutes. Beans can be assembled, covered and refrigerated one day before baking and serving. Remove cover before baking.
