Three-Bean Molasses and Bourbon Bake

Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

This is a simple, quick and sweetly rich baked bean dish made easy with the use of canned beans, and flavored with molasses, bourbon and a bit of brown sugar and Dijon mustard. It makes a nice vegetarian main dish, or as a side dish with baked ham.

Sorry, but we did not care much for these beans. The Bourbon flavor came on to strong masking the other flavors. If we make these again, we will use 1/2 the amount of Burbon. I added about 3/8 cup of honey to the left overs and it was an improvement. I would of liked to added some crushed pineapple to it but din't have any.
