Annie's Award-Winning Baked Beans
This recipe won me first place in a baked bean cook-off at the Western Idaho State Fair. They start with dried beans, so give yourself some extra time. Kind of sweet and savory and yummy.
Recipe Summary test
I listed 10 servings because it won't let you leave it blank. I really don't know how many servings. Just makes a big baking dish full.
Use 3 cups any dried beans, such as pinto or small red. I have never used a white bean, but there is no reason it wouldn't work.
On the seasonings, you can add more of any of them or less, depending on what your family likes. I love Worcestershire sauce and I add a lot more than the 2 tablespoons. Through the years I have added different things to my baked beans such as; a little mesquite BBQ sauce. or leftover chopped cooked meat. Be careful with the salt, it has a tendency to get salty easily.
Sometimes during the cold months of the year, I would make my baked beans, BBQ something in the oven, whip up a salad and then, if you don't look outside, you can pretend it's summer and that isn't snow out there on the lawn.
