These are delicious! They came out cooked just right. There was a bit too much ketchup for me. I'd cut back on ketchup & increase the molasses. Maybe that's the New England in me. ;) Thank you for posting! Made for PAC Spring '07.

  5. In a large casserole with a tight lid, place the onions, garlic, bacon, beans and the pan drippings. Add the reserved water and remaining ingredients. Mix well.
