Three Bean Baked Beans

Catherine Thompson Floyd


This version of baked beans is different, but so delicious. The three textures of these beans go together and POP in your mouth. My mom always made the pork N beans version, I make a version like hers but don't put bacon strips across the top. This 3 bean version is great hot or cold, is extremely easy and people remember it, and love it when I take it to pot-lucks. No family gathering can happen without my Mom's version or this vegetarian version!
