This is a very old recipe given to me by my mother-in-law. My husband loves these beans and requests them often. If you have an occasion coming up, give them a try! You won't be disappointed!

Well, I can see why they're Dan's favorite! I love baked beans, and this is the easiest recipe I've ever seen for them. And they are definitly the best! They have a wonderful flavor, a mix of sweet and spicy. Bev, this will be the only way I make my baked beans from now on!! Thanks!! :-)
