Several great American classic dishes have danced in our minds this week in anticipation of getting together with loved ones. There's nothing like a great spread of comfort food favorites to bring home the essence of a long, American holiday weekend. We plan on celebrating President's Day Weekend with a few meals that make it quite nice to be an American!

My husband loves this dish! I better double it, so everyone else gets some! :)

Baked Beans With A Bite:
Serves 6-8

5 slices turkey bacon, finely chopped
1 small sweet onion, chopped
1/4 cup packed organic dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
2 teaspoons chipotle chile, canned in adobo sauce, finely chopped
3 (16 ounce) cans navy beans, rinsed and drained
12 ounces (3/4 of 18 oz bottle) of Bull's Eye Original barbecue sauce
Cooking Spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium high heat, flipping once until both sides are crisp. Remove bacon from pan and set on plate layered with paper towels. Dab off excess drippings.

Pour out excess drippings from pan, leaving about one tablespoon in pan. Add onion and saute for 3 minutes.

Combine bacon, onion and remaining ingredients (brown sugar through barbecue sauce) together in large bowl; toss well. Spray an 8x8 pan or baking dish with cooking spray. Spoon in bean mixture.

Cook for 30-35 minutes.

Enjoy with another American classic dish like meat loaf!
