I'm not going to rate this (so it won't affect your average rating) because I tried this against my better judgment. As so often happens with baked bean recipes, I found this to be way, way too sweet for my taste, even though I didn't add the syrup. Even adding more onion, some turkey bacon, and some cider vinegar didn't remove enough of the sweetness so I could enjoy it. This isn't a criticism of the recipe itself, it's more a warning for those who are like me and don't care for so much sweet.
So delicious! Thank you for such a great recipe!
These Baked Beans are the best. Our family eats meat very rarely and now that summer is here we were looking for a "pork n bean" recipe without bacon. This is it. We made this for my in laws who own a cattle, and pig farm and eat meat with every meal, they loved it and asked for the recipe. We have used canned beans (great northern and pinto) to make this when we were in a hurry and it turned out fabulous.
