My Original Baked Bean Recipe

Amanda Hyatt


While making baked beans for a family BBQ, I decided to make my own recipe. A few minutes of tweaking the flavors to get it just the way I liked, and I ended up with a baked bean recipe that everyone seems to love. Just catered a wedding for my cousin, and the photographer asked if I wanted to be a professional caterer for a package deal she was creating; because she said and I quote, "These are the best baked beans I have ever had". Hope everyone who makes them enjoys them like my family does.
