I am always on the lookout for good baked bean recipes and this one is right up there, the only thing different I did was add in fresh minced garlic in when frying the onions (I use 2 large onions) we loved this recipe, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
Bev! what a delicious dinner we had, these are pretty special tasting beans, not your standard pork and beans. They are sweet and sour with a kick from the hot sauce and herbs. I loved them. The sauce was tangy, the beans, soft and tender, very very tasty. I used Frank's Red Hot Sauce (cayenne pepper sauce) instead of Tabasco, since I was out. I drizzled it over the finished beans, wow, I can't wait to have this for lunch today. Thanks so much for sharing
