Maple Onion Baked Beans

READY IN: 6hrs
Recipe by KelBel

The secret ingredient in this recipe is the 1 envelope of dried onion soup mix (from a 2.0oz box). My mom gave me this recipe with molasses in it, but I omitted that and added maple syrup. This is a tried and true recipe that has been enjoyed for decades.

Wonderful. I added some molasses, that's it. I put portions in ziplocks and froze them in serving portions that I defrosted and served as wanted.
