"Don't let the title or ingredients scare you away from this recipe. These are the greatest baked beans I have ever had. This recipe came from my oldest daughter's sister-in-law's father. Great for BBQs. I never have any leftovers. I hope you like them and leave your feedback."

I love this recipe for baked beans! To tell you the truth I have had it for years from a friend but misplaced it and was hoping someone posted it here...yippee you did!! Always a crowd pleaser!
This recipe does not specify whether or not to drain the pork and beans. I chose to drain them, and I wish that I’d at least added some of the bean liquid back to the mixture before going into the oven. We like our baked beans cold better than hot. I typically remove them from the oven before the recommended cooking time, so there’s a little more liquid as I think that consistency is better when cold. I made half a recipe, set the timer for 80 minutes (10 minutes less than the recipe indicated), and the beans were slightly overcooked. I think 90 minutes would have been a disaster. I added some water to the dish, mixed it in well, so all was good. I mention this only because 90 minutes sounded like a lot of time to me for baking beans, so you may want to be cautious, and start checking them at 60 minutes for doneness (I know I will the next time). These are fairly sweet baked beans, but they’re good. My apples probably were closer to being minced than chopped, so the next time I will cut them a little larger, so I know when I’m biting into apple.
I think this is great. I have added canned pork to make this a main dish with more meat. I also replace one can of the pork and beans with drained kidney beans. This makes it less soupy and also gives more variety. I also leave the skins on the apples, more vitamins and fiber. Very yummy. My 3 year old loves it.
I love this recipe. I used at least that much bacon if not more. I highly recommend this recipe .
