People rave over these baked beans wherever I take them. It's an easy recipe to double. Even for the basic recipe, I add an extra can of beans because the meat-to-bean ratio is so generous. The flavor is sweet and tangy, but not too much of either. I've also used reduced-fat Polish sausage and turkey bacon, and that works fine. It's hard to mess up this recipe.
