This is a very good, quick & easy recipe. They are cooked on the stove top using canned Pork and Beans, but the flavor is like you have baked them for hours. This recipe, by Glenn Manning, was found online.

What a great tasting recipe - but had to make some changes (as suggested via Chef No Cook Donna). Cut the Pork & Beans down to 53 oz can (much better than 86 oz). I had to guess at what "1 1/2 lb brown sugar" was (didn't have a scale) so I settled with using a tad bit more than 1 1/2 cups. I also added 1 TBSP molasses. MMMMM - my husband LOVED this Stove Top Baked Beans and he thought it took me forever (less than 1 hour!) It's great reheated, too.
