I first had this baked bean recipe at a faculty picnic. I begged Dr. Soles for the recipe. There are six different beans and the combination of taste and texture makes me want to cry to my mother! The zing from the vinegar, the flavor of the bacon, and the delicious heartiness of this dish will make every other potluck guest say, “Did you try those beans?!” Sometimes overlooked, baked beans can get a bad rap, but bring these to the next family picnic and just wait for the reactions!
28 oz can of Bush’s original baked beans
14 oz can kidney beans (drained)
14 oz can garbanzo beans (drained)
14 oz can black beans (drained)
14 oz can green beans (drained)
14 oz can butter beans (drained)
Half pound of thick-cut bacon sliced with kitchen shears into small pieces
1 finely diced red onion
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup catsup
1/3 cup white vinegar
Bake at 400′ for an hour covered and 15 minutes uncovered.
Determine the consistency you like. This is a no-fail recipe. Watch the picnicers lick their plates!
