The Lazy Vegetarian Leis the Table

 Luau Beans

Luau Beans is a good lazy-day dish.  Don Hawaiian duds, spin some Don Ho, and "hula" away the afternoon.  There’s no harm done if the beans end up baking overtime. Hakuna Matata.

Four  26 oz cans baked beans, or equivalent
2 teaspoons dried mustard

1/2 cup brown sugar
One 20 oz can crushed pineapple
One 20 oz can sliced pineapple 

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Combine all ingredients except sliced pineapple in two 2-quart casseroles. Bake for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Top with sliced pineapple. Return casserole to oven and bake 30 minutes longer.

  1. Ha! Bill has done something similar for years, although he does them on the stove and puts in about 3x the amount of sugar that you do. We call it "Daddy's Candy Beans". Next time I'll try to talk him into using the oven instead of the stove--we've had some nasty layers of burned beans on the bottom of the pot, the result of forgetting to stir frequently.
