This recipe is my sister-in-law's. When we first noticed that these were not just regular baked beans, we didn't know what to call this dish. And, for whatever reason, someone started calling it "Roadkill Casserole". That doesn't sound very appetizing for a dish at dinnertime. But, because it sounded humorous, the name stuck. But, I refuse to list it that way. It is very yummy.
