This recipe was pretty good! I've never made baked beans and I'm really impressed with the outcome. I ended up soaking my beans for almost 2 days (couldn't find a long enough time i was at home) While I was preparing everything it slipped my mind that we had no onions! So I subtituted with onion powder. I also didn't want it to take too long so i did a quick shortcut to boiling the beans in a pressure cooker for 10mins, And boy was i relieved it wasn't mush when i opened it! It actually turned out pretty well. There was some that was mushed up but it's something you could expect even when just boiling it and stirring so it wouldn't stick at the bottom. I shoule have lessened the time to maybe 8 mins, but i was pretty content with the outcome. So for you who have pressure cookers and want to cut back on 2hours of cooking time, i suggest 8-10 mins in the pressure cooker. I thought i could also shorten the time while baking...but after 2 hours in the oven (and a bowl of the beans down my tummy) i decided that it wasn't quite done. So i set the timer for an hour and 15mins more and viola! The husband loved it and so did I! The center turned out with little to no sauce when I served it, so instead of layering all the beans at the bottom, at suggest doing 2 layers of beans and sauce. It turned out dryer than i expected but you can remedy that with a tad bit more sauce and the water you boiled the beans in. Great Job Anita! Thanks for sharing.
