Definitely not quick, but well worth the wait, these beans are thick, sweet, and tangy. I've never served these without someone requesting the recipe.

10.22.18 Admittedly I was a skeptic about this recipe but no longer. It doesn t take much time to get this dish into the oven and really all you need is time for some surprisingly absolutely delicious baked beans. The recipe didn t say whether or not to drain the beans but I didn t just dumped in the whole can. I did add a little salt and pepper and used red and yellow bell peppers instead of green otherwise followed the recipe. If you have a day where you re going to be hangin around the house give these beans a try. Alice Shockley you made a believer out of me! Read More

This is an old family recipe. We make this with the following changes 1) use 2 or 3 different types of canned baked beans -- B&M Bush's Van Camps and/or kidney beans; 2) add 1/2 teaspoon Coleman's Dry Mustard sometimes we add cooked and drained ground beef. Read More
