This dish can be served and used as you would baked beans. With chips and a fried egg it is a nourishing and complete main course. I have always enjoyed using lentils in cooking - they make very good vegetarian savory loaves and of course no Indian meal would be complete without a good dahl. 1 cup lentils 2 1/2 cups water 1/2 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar 2 tablespoons ketchup 2 tablespoons molasses 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard 4 slices bacon -- diced and cooked In saucepan, combine lentils, water, onion, and salt. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer 45 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Turn into 1-quart casserole dish and bake at 350 for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.
