Please note this blog is no longer updated. (Click here to find my new blog address).

The little guy loves these! Besides how much time they take to cook and bake they are really really easy. The Doctor makes these at his work and everyone loves them.

1 c dried lentils
2 1/2 c water
1/2 c chopped onion
1 tsp salt
2 Tb brown sugar
2 Tb catsup
2 Tb molasses
1/2 tsp dry mustard
2 slices bacon

Rinse lentils, drain. In saucepan combine: lentils, water, onion and salt, bring to boil. Cover and simmer 45 minutes. Stir in brown sugar, catsup, molasses, mustard, and bacon (uncooked).
Turn into 1 quart bean pot and bake uncovered in 350 degree oven for 1 hour 15 minutes, stir occasionally. Pull out slices of bacon and serve.
Yield: 4-6 servings
