Mimi's Baked Beans

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by kitty.rock

This is my mom - Mimi's - recipe for baked beans. Always a compliment to any occasion. This makes a good size dish for serving at a picnic or barbeque. I sometimes add cooked smoked sausage or ground beef and make it into a "casserole" for dinner, served with a salad and bread & butter slices. YUM...(:-)

Great beans!!! Very similar to the way I make my baked beans, but different ingredients. I used prepared mustard and so alot more of it and then brown sugar instead of the syrup. I was like weekend cooker and went very lightly with the red pepper, used regular bacon and ended up cooking it longer than stated, but it still worked out great. Congrats on another football pool win!!!
