I love beans and make them from "scratch" a lot and I still will. However, these beans are so easy to prepare and taste so good, they will be done on many occasions as well. It is correct to cover for the first hour of cooking. I think it would dry out with 2 hours of uncovered cooking.
This is a great easy recipe that most everyone seems to like. I'm going to try to do it in the crockpot next time. It's too hot to use the oven. I use Bush's Baked Beans and so far have used a different variety each time. Each was wonderful.
This was easy and was indeed hearty. I took Garlic cresent rolls and placed them over the top of the casserole about 20 mins before it was completed cooking and let them brown. The casserole sat in the frig overnight before it was reheated for dinner. I also took some for breakfast - nuking it in the microwave at work. I doubled the original recipe with no problems. I used pork & beans and Italian stewed tomato's. I didn't double the brown sugar amount.
This is a wonderful recipe and is great to make in a crockpot and take to potlucks.
Lennie was kind enough to submit this when I requested non-dairy dinner ideas. I only made one change and that was to use garlic salt in lieu of the celery salt. I used Bush's Baked Beans and cooked for one hour covered and one hour uncovered. Very flavorful and filling. Perfect.Thanks!PeggyLynn
Very good way to use left over baked beans.
