    Not-2-Sweet's Note:

    This is my favorite baked bean recipe. Sweet, smoky, tangy, and full of flavor. Plus the contrast in colors of the beans make the dish look interesting. Always a big hit at picnics or potlucks. The original recipe was called "Five Dollar Beans" but it called for a lot of extra ingredients. It had a wonderful flavor, adults loved it, but the kids thought that it looked "weird". So I adapted the recipe for picky eaters and I actually like it much better this way. It was my daughter's idea to rename this dish "Three Dollar Beans".

      Although I almost always make baked beans without any meat, I made an exception here, 'cause I wanted to get the full flavor that was intended! Not a disappointment, either, 'cause THESE BEANS ARE GREAT! Another time I might use molasses instead of the BBQ sauce, but again, I tell you, THESE BEANS ARE GREAT! Thanks, much, for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed as part of my And-a THREE theme in My-3-Chefs]
