This recipe came to me in the early 90's from a dear friend and neighbor who has since passed on. I make this frequently in the summertime and am always reminded of my friend who loved to cook and entertain. This is my family's favorite baked bean recipe. I hope you will enjoy it too. —Kathcooks

Thank you, Muse! This makes a great Autumn supper too. I've added kielbasa, franks, and another pound of ground beef. Great with a tossed salad on a chilly night.
