Local salumeria Olympic Provisions shared this perfect Super Bowl Sunday recipe. Easy to make ahead of time or double to feed an entire crowd of hungry fans.
Olympic Provisions Frank and Beans
1 pound dry Great Northern Beans (or any white bean)
1 pound hunk of bacon
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ cup molasses
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons dry mustard
½ cup ketchup
1 medium yellow onion, diced small
1 medium green bell pepper, diced small
2 ½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 Olympic Provisions Frankfurters
1 scallion, thinly sliced
Fried eggs (optional)
Sort then soak beans overnight. Drain and rinse. In a medium heavy-bottom pot, add beans and bacon. Cover with water by 3 inches. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat and cook until tender, about 2 ½ to 3 hours. Salt to taste.
Preheat oven to 325°.
Remove the bacon and roughly dice. To the cooked beans, add back the diced bacon and the brown sugar, molasses, honey, dry mustard, ketchup, onion, bell pepper, salt and pepper. Bring just to a simmer, cover with a lid or aluminum foil, then transfer to the oven. Bake about 3 hours, stirring occasionally. When done, the cooking liquid will be thick like syrup.
In a large heavy-bottom sauté pan on medium heat, gently sear frankfurters. They are done once nicely browned. Slice frankfurters and serve atop baked beans. Garnish with sliced scallion and if desired, fried eggs.
*Canned cooked beans can be used in lieu of starting with dried beans.
