  • 2 cups white navy beans, dry and uncooked (or 4 cups cooked)
  • 68 strips bacon, as needed
  • 1 onion, diced
  • Sauce Ingredients:
  • 3 Tablespoons molasses
  • Salt and pepper, as desired
  • 2 teaspoons mustard powder
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


  1. Soak the navy beans in 4 cups of water overnight.
  2. Drain and rinse the beans and then place in a large saucepan or stockpot.
  3. Add 4 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 15-20 minutes, then drain – reserving the cooking water.
  4. While the beans are cooking, combine the sauce ingredients in a large bowl.
  5. When the beans are done, add them to the sauce and stir to coat completely.
  6. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  7. In a casserole dish, layer the beans with the bacon and onions: 1/2 of the chopped onion, 3-4 strips of bacon, 2 cups of beans, then remaining 1/2 onion, remaining 3-4 strips bacon and remaining 2 cups beans.
  8. Pour enough of the bean cooking water over the beans to cover in about 1/2” of water.
  9. Place the casserole dish in the oven, uncovered, and bake for 3-4 hours until all of the water appears to be absorbed.
  10. Stir well and serve.
