Stovetop Baked Beans

Cindi Bauer


One day I had a craving for baked beans, but didn't have the time to bake them in the oven, so I decided to cook them on top the stove. Once cooked, they reminded me of Bush's Homestyle Baked Beans (with out the bacon), and when served cold, they reminded of Bush's Original Baked Beans. I also enjoyed the beans with the bacon, those also tasted like Bush's Original Baked Beans, when served hot or cold.
