My Mom's Baked Beans

READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
Recipe by Smilyn

This is a special recipe that my mom would make when we'd go to church pot lucks. It's a change to the same ol' jello salad or potato salad everyone else makes.

Flavors were good but found it way too salty (those 4 tsps are a hefty amount of salt!). Ended up adding an extra can of pork & beans to try "thin out" the salt. Next time I will reduce to 1 tsp. Also, didn't do that last 1-1/2 hours in the oven. They were pretty mushy after 1 hour.
