Some Redditors have revealed that “sticky beans” are prepared in a frying pan, instead of a saucepan.
This way you can also add bacon to the mixture.

Reddit user [deleted] OK. They said, “Must be daddy’s thing, the frying pan is the only way my old man ever baked beans.”
TonyFawntanaa simply commented, “I fry them in the pan.”
Another Redditor, SwimmingInCircles, shared his favorite way to bake baked beans. They said, “Make sure the beans are piping hot, then put the cheese on it, delicious.”
Serencalon added: âFrying pan. Pat of butter. Sizzle. Add beans. Reduce (a lot), pepper. To serve. Drool.”

Barneyirl said: âFinally someone who cooks beans the way beans should be cooked. Tired of seeing bean soup here.
Other Redditors disagreed with the original post and had other ideas, while some were grateful for the post and couldn’t wait to try the method themselves.
Berusplants commented: âI like them too much but maybe not that much. My particular heresy is that I love a teaspoon of Gochujang in them.
