This is a fabulous recipe! I had never made baked beans before (really any bean dish), but thought I would give this one a try. After one false start in preparing dried beans, I made this recipe starting with dried kidney beans. This was truly one of the best dishes I've tasted, let along made. The flavor was delicious. I omitted the bacon and will probably do so again, but I don't think it diminished the taste. This is a recipe you truly have to taste to really understand ~ words can't do it justice! Thanks for posting!
I made some red kidney beans, then added the rest of the ingredients and let me tell ya, they went over really good with our favorite grilled hot dogs and coleslaw. Great flavors if you like sweet beans. Really yummy to us!
Now here's a recipe for great tasting baked beans, & what drew me to it more than anything else was the inclusion of 'sweet pickle relish!' I don't usually include bacon in my beans, but followed the recipe faithfully, & was very happy with the result! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
These were delicious. The only thing I did differently was to bake them longer. I ended up baking an extra 30 minutes after I pulled off the foil and increased the temperature (for a total of 2 hours). I like them thick and wanted to give plenty of time for them to thicken up and for the bacon to brown. Thanks for posting!
Wonderful recipe for beans! I love the addition of relish it brings out extra flavor to the dish, I through in some red kidney beans and increased all ingredients a slightly. We enjoyed this with grilled burgers tonight. Caroline thank you for another winner!...Kitten:)
