Sweet and Sour Baked Beans

As promised another football or game day recipe. I have another baked bean recipe with rootbeer that is great, but I am going to save it so I can give you my coke a cola cake recipe next. This is a good recipe to serve with just about everything. It goes well with burgers, ribs, or chicken. I am not sure what makes this recipe so delicious, but people will rave over it.

2 16 ounce cans of pork and beans
1 8 ounce can of pineapple chunks, drained
1/4 cup green peppers/ chopped
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
4 to 5 hot dogs cut into pieces
If you don't like hot dogs or want to be more "upscale" you could use sausage. There are all sorts of gourmet sausages out there that are wonderful. If neither of these appeal to you then take 5 or 6 slices of bacon and cook until crisp. Crumble the bacon and substitute.
1/4 cup catsup
1 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon instant minced onion, you can also use chopped onion that you saute before adding to mixture.

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a 2 quart casserole, combine all ingredients. Bake for 40 minutes or until bubbly around the edges. Good served with cornbread.
