“My sister turned me on to this wonderful way to dress up canned baked or barbeque beans (and she nabbed it from our cousin). They are delightful, and such an easy way to make canned taste homemade. I love to serve these with barbequed meat, and either cold slaw or potatoe salad. This recipe can easily be adjusted to serve the number of people in your party. You can also add more or less brown sugar, depending on how much sweetness you prefer.”
