Never really cared much for baked beans until I tried this at a work potluck. I chased down the gal that made it and got the recipe. My family loved it. Then I lost the recipe. Years later I met the same gal at a different job and got this recipe back. Now I have copies in several different cookbooks and have given it to many friends so I shan't lose it again.
