We had a bbq potluck at work and I was chosen to bring baked beans. I wanted to take something other than just out of a can beans. I had never made my own baked beans before but found this recipe and it seemed easy so I thought I would give it a shot. Let me begin by saying.........FANTASTIC!!! Everyone loved them. There is one person who does not eat pork so I made them without the bacon and they still came out great. I can not wait to make these again but with bacon this time. Let me note that besides omitting the bacon, I followed the recipe to a tee maybe that's why some people complained in earlier reviews that they are a bit too salty for them so just cut the salt to 1 tsp or omit entirely. I do not have a 2 quart baking dish so I used a regular 9x13 pan I covered the beans with the reserved juice, baked for an hour and 1/2, uncovered, added a bit more juice and stirred, baked uncovered for another hour, stirred in a bit more juice and baked for another hour and they came out perfect. I did not give this 5 stars but JUST because of the cooking time but I am definitely keeping this recipe and it will become a family fav. Thank you so much!
