A must try! There are tons of recipes for baked beans but these will really stand out and how great...they freeze beautifully! I call them 3 way because you can really use any 3 kinds of beans you like. AND once combined you have 3 options to choose what to do with them. I adapted this recipe to suit my family and the freezer. The original is from Beyond Macaroni and Cheese.

Another good recipe from SI! I made two bags and plunked them in the freezer. This weekend I put one bag in an 8x8 pan and baked. The texture was dry but the taste was good. Next time I will bake with a foil cover.
