BAKED BEANS RECIPES
Baked beans are one of my all time favorite side dishes. All of that bacon and bean goodness. Who can resist?
I have always been a huge fan of good old fashioned baked beans. I just never realized just how easy they were to make. Seriously, who knew? All you have to do is pair canned beans with a few simple ingredients and bam, your’re done. Cook and serve.
That easy peasy.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT RECIPE
When it comes to choosing a recipe for baked beans think of when and where you will be serving the recipe. First, ask yourself if kids will be eating. If the answer is yes, then you’ll probably want to leave out the spicy ingredients.
Second, will you be traveling with this recipe? If the answer is yes, you might want to pick a recipe that doesn’t have bacon in it. Sometimes when bacon sits in a sauce it tends to get a little bit rubbery. Trust me, nobody wants that mess.
