Happy Memorial Day!
I hope you are enjoying this beautiful day having a barbecue with family and friends and honoring all the great men and women who serve our country.
If you are having a gathering today and still need to get your side dishes together I have one for you.
Baked beans are such a staple side dish at summer picnics. How often do you find yourself just picking up a can of baked beans at the market to heat up. Easy, right? I’m right there with you. I’ve done it many times before myself. That is until I discovered the secret recipe to Bush’s Baked Beans. Ok, maybe I didn’t but it sure tastes like I have.
I didn’t want to create a baked bean recipe that was basically just doctoring up beans that are already made. I wanted to create from scratch the classic recipe for baked beans; more importantly I wanted it to be easy. If it isn’t easy then why just go by a can of them then.
Friends, these are easy peasy. Most of the time involved are these simmering on the stove. Better yet, these can be can be made vegetarian, just omit the bacon bits.
