I wanted baked beans, for a side dish, for a fish fry, but did not want to spend all day cooking them.
I found this recipe on my sons blog “blogchef.net”. The combinations of flavors looked really good and the recipe could be completed in about and hour.
I was just feeding a couple of people so we froze the leftovers for future fish fries. If you are looking for a good side dish give this one a try; it’s really good.
