Barbecue Beans

4 slices bacon
1/2 cup ketchup
1 Tablespoon Worchestershire sauce
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 cups string beans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown the bacon until crisp, add onion and cook until onion is clear. Drain. In the same skillet add ketchup, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Simmer together for about two minutes.  

In a separate casserole dish place the beans (if using canned, drain before adding -- if using fresh blanch briefly in boiling water to soften). Pour sauce over -- do not mix. Bake for 20 minutes, uncovered. Serves 6. A great addition for a summer barbecue.
