Rhubarb Bean Bake
A little sweet....a little tart, these baked beans are great for Spring grilling!
4 slices bacon
1 cup finely diced onion
1 1/2 cups finely diced rhubarb
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard powder
1/2 to 3/4 cup light brown sugar (packed)
1 cup ketchup
3 cups cooked cannellini or Great Northern beans ( or 2 14 ounce cans, drained and rinsed)
Cook the bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Remove the bacon to paper toweling, leaving the drippings in the skillet. Crumble when cooled.
Add the onion and rhubarb to the skillet and sauté until softened. Stir in the ginger, salt and mustard powder and sauté another minute.
Add the brown sugar, ketchup, bacon and beans.
Transfer the mixture to a 10 x 10 inch baking dish (or one similar in size).
Bake, covered in a pre heated 350F oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 minutes more.
