Grandma Olson's Baked Beans

My mom made essentially this recipe for our baked beans for years, and I loved them because they were unusually indulgent (my mom didn't do indulgent all that often).  Now I realize it's because they had so much sugar.  It turns out it's a recipe my mom credits my grandmother, her mother-in-law, with.  My Grandma Olson passed away this Fall.  I record this recipe in her honor and in ours.  If my memory serves, it's rockstar.

2 cans pink beans
3/4 C brown sugar
1 1/2 t Worcestershire sauce
1 C ketchup
1/4 C molasses
2 medium onions, fried and drained
2 medium green peppers, fried and drained
1 lb bacon, fried and drained

Combine.  Bake 30 minutes at 325.
