In a skillet or medium saucepan over medium-high heat, cook bacon until it begins to brown and crisp. Do not drain off or discard any bacon fat.
Lower heat to medium. Add onions and cook until translucent. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer. Cover pan with aluminum foil and place in the oven.
