I do a similar recipe - this is double batch - can never get away with less: 2 of the big jars of northern beans, 1 lb. brown sugar, a very lrg onion - chopped, 1 can pet milk, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper. mix all and put into a sprayed pan - need larger than a 9x13. top the beans with several strips of thin, lean bacon (I almost cover the top). Bake 350 for 2-3 hrs. The idea of this recipe is to cook down the liquid until it becomes less than half and creamy.

This was awesome! Only thing I did different was use a crockpot.
