  • 1 medium Vidalia onions, coarsely chopped

  • 1 clove of garlic, minced

  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 4 (16-ounce) cans plain baked beans, drained

  • 1/2 cup catsup

  • 1/4 cup light molasses

  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs

  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter or margarine


Saute the onions and garlic in the oil in a saucepan for 5 minutes or until golden brown and tender.  Remove from heat. Stir in the beans, catsup and molasses.  Spoon into a 2-quart baking dish.

Combine the cheese, bread crumbs and butter in a bowl and mix well.  Sprinkle over the bean mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until brown and bubbly.

Sweet onions, such as Vidalia, are usually only available seasonally.  More robust onions can be sweetened by soaking in milk for several minutes after slicing or chopping.
