This is my favorite baked bean recipe. I adapted it from one of my cookbooks. The original recipe had kidney and lima beans, which i do not like. It also called for bacon, but the first time i made it i did not have any so i substituted 1/2 pound sausage, and have made it that way ever since. It is perfect for your next neighborhood picnic.
