Buffalo BBQ & Baked Bean Bacon Cups

Author: Southern Made Simple


  • 1 package bacon each slice cut into 3 pieces
  • 1 lb cooked and shredded BBQ meat pork and chicken both work great for this recipe!
  • 1 28 oz can of your favorite flavor baked beans
  • 1/2 cup Frank's RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce
  • Prepared coleslaw for topping optional


  • Preheat oven to 450 F
  • Slice each strip of bacon into three pieces
  • Spray the underside of a mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray and lay 3 pieces of bacon across the hump of each cup in a criss-cross motion
  • Place an additional mini muffin tin on top of bacon when finished to keep bacon in place while cooking and set on top of a baking sheet to catch fat drippings
  • Cook bacon for about 12 minutes
  • Remove from oven and check to make sure bacon is done and is crisp enough to form a cup. Allow to cool completely with lid still on the bacon cups
  • In a large bowl, combine baked beans, BBQ meat and Frank's RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce and stir
  • Place BBQ mixture in the oven and reduce temperature to 350 F
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until bubbly hot
  • Remove bacon cups from muffin tins and pour a spoonful of BBQ mixture into each one
  • Top with a small amount of coleslaw (optional) and a drizzle of Frank's RedHot Buffalo Wings sauce and serve!
