I had a few reservations but this is a stone cold winner. We served it with aBone in pork roast and a greek salad. Great paring. It is super easy and very different. Serve it with just about anything and get ready for happy family and guests. A real find!!!!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak Beans overnight, with plenty of water above the beans. They soak it up!
  2. In the morning, drain the beans, cover with water, add 1 tsp salt and cook until slightly tender -- 20-30 minutes. However, you must watch these babies, because they have a big tendency to boil over!Just bring them to a boil (watching them), then lower the heat --- and still watch them!
  3. After the beans are cooked, drain again and rinse them under hot water, and place them in a lightly sprayed or greased (oleo) casserole dish.
  4. Dab Butter over beans; mix "lightly"! or they get squishy.
  5. Stir in Molasses.
  6. Finally, pour in sour cream and mix "tenderly".
  7. Bake at 350 for one hour. (again, keep an eye on them, I don't think I usually bake them for and entire hour).
