Wonderful recipe! My husband loves baked beans with his ribs, and I when I went to my pantry I found every other bean except baked beans. I hopped on Food.com and found this recipe- it is now my go to recipe for baked beans. Husband loved these better than the doctored can baked beans I usually make! So easy to make!
I'm sorry I haven't reviewed this sooner...I've been making these beans for at least 2 years now. These are FANTASTIC. I up the black pepper to give it more of a spicy kick on top of the zing from the ginger. Not overly sweet and the bacon makes it satisfying and even heartier. <br/><br/>I've made it with Northern which produces a softer texture of bean, and I've made it with Red Kidneys for a toothier chew. I prefer red kidney beans for this recipe, but you can also probably do half and half to have different textures. <br/><br/>Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Call this cheating if you must. However, I always get raves about my baked beans. Chop one onion (whatever size depending on how much you like onion although there's not a heavy onion taste.) Chop about 1/2 pound of bacon in pretty good size chunks. Saute together. Add one can of B&M Baked Beans and mix all together in a casserole dish. Pop it into a 350 degree oven and heat until hot Believe it or not, they are wonderful! You don't even need to wait until you need a really quick and easy recipe for baked beans. This one works very well (and you don't need to tell anyone that they are not a longer, more complicated version.)

I used about 1 1/2 or 2 cups of beans (I cook mine in large batches from dried beans) and cut the recipe in half. I skipped the bacon to make them vegetarian, and used some smoked sweet paprika instead. I tasted it before I cooked them, and it was too sweet for me, so I added extra mustard and vinegar. I put them in a crock pot on low for several hours and they came out great!
