Beans, Baked w/Pineapple (P, TNT)
Source: adapted from Paula Deen show on Food TV
Serves: 8 to 10

4 16-ounce cans vegetarian baked beans
1 20-ounce can crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup molasses
1 cup barbeque sauce
2 tbsp. mustard
1/2 cup soy "bacon" bits
1 16-ounce can french-fried onions, crushed

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9"x13" casserole dish.

In large bowl, mix together beans, pineapple, molasses, barbeque sauce, mustard, "bacon" bits, and 1/3 of the onions. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour into prepared dish and sprinkle remaining crushed onions on top.

Cook in oven for 1 hour or until beans are brown and bubbly.

Poster's Notes:
Paula Deen today had a show in which she featured a baked bean dish that at first sounded over the top to me. But the more I thought of it, the more interesting it sounded. I just made a 1/4 recipe and it is surprisingly good. Sweet, but very, very good and not as sweet as it sounds. I am going to include it in a July 4th BBQ menu.

The above is the recipe as shown on the web site with just the ingredients adapted for my use. On the TV show, Paula Deen mixed 3/4 of the onions and none of the bacon bits into the bean mixture. Then she used the rest of the onions and the bacon bits as the topping.
