Can You Believe (Grandpa's Baked Bean Sandwich)

Norma DeRemer


Was talking to one of my cousin's the other day and we were talking about the days she lived in Ashville, NC where my Mother's family lived. We got talking about Grandpa Coche and his baked bean sandwich. He would alway say "just because your poor doesn't mean you have to eat like it".I remember us kids not wanting to taste his sandwich, but when we did. Wow! They were GOOD! You can be sure that the next time I make baked beans I'm making one. I'm so glad she had a picture of it to e-mail me.
