Baked Beans Billy Skillet Style

Don't these beans look so yummy? Well, I have to tell you that the picture doesn't do any justice! They are simply the best baked beans ever! My dear husband created this recipe and our kids, family, and friends always rave about how good they are. Well, you are one lucky reader today because I am sharing the recipe. Actually, hubby usually mixes the bean recipe together and then converts to a 9x13 baking pan. However, I made these beans using his recipe but I converted them back to the iron skillet that I started with. Here's the recipe:

Iron skillet
1 can 28 oz of Bush's regular style baked beans
1/2 medium onion chopped
4 slices of good bacon (I use thick sliced) chop into pieces
3 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp mustard
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp bbq sauce

Heat iron skillet on medium and cook onion and bacon until onion tender. Meanwhile pour all other ingredients into a bowl and mix. Drain grease from skillet and place cooked onion and bacon in mixture. Mix well and then place all ingredients back in the iron skillet. Bake for 30 minutes in a 400 degree oven. Allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!!!

Bag of Rice

My hubby and I made a trip to Sam's last night. I told him I needed a bag of rice. Well, we found this wonderul aromatic Basmati rice in this cool burlap sack for only twelve dollars and some change! What a great deal! I see a lot of chicken and rice dinners!

Coconut Rice

My sister-n-law requested I put this recipe on my blog. It is fantastic served with Thai stir fry chicken. I use Vigo Jasmine rice to make this recipe and I I go by the recipe on the bag. Of course, I convert a few ingredients.

So here it is:

1 1/2 cups Jasmine Rice
1 14 ox can Coconut milk
1/4 cup water
1 tsp organic sugar
1/4 tsp sea salt

Rinse rice thoroughly, several times until almost clear. Drain in colander. In a 4 quart saucepan with lid, add coconut milk, water, sugar, and salt. Stir until blended. Add drained rice and stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover tightly to simmer. Cook about 15 minutes and remove from heat. Fluff and serve. Enjoy!
