"This is a delicious recipe for easy baked beans with great flavor that says to me "this is what baked beans should taste like!" The recipe comes from justapinch.com but I omitted the bacon slices baked on top because I didn't want the added fat... If you want the added flavor of bacon, do what I did and mix in some real bacon pieces with the other ingredients."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I used B&M baked beans, because imo thet are the best. Love the flavor, and they don't get mushy. I have a thing about that. Anyway, with these few additions the beans were even more delicious. That and a good hamburg patty made a great mea,l along with some bread and butter for that yummy juice sitting in my plate. Yum!

Though they aren't made from scratch, these were good beans to have at the last minute with hamburger patties. We liked them and will use in a pinch when I don't have time to make my own.
