Sweet, creamy, filling and so simple to make, these Old Fashioned Baked Beans are the perfect companion to your morning eggs and will make any morning that much brighter! Try them once, you’ll never reach for the canned stuff ever again!
Ever since I can remember, I’ve always had a soft spot for baked beans and I believe that they will always have that special place in my heart.
You see, my love for baked beans comes to me from my dad. He didn’t use to cook all that much, but baked beans are something that he’d like to whip up once in a while and when he did, the whole house smelled soooo deliciously good, it almost felt like Christmas to me. And I can’t tell you the number of times that I saw him grab a container of leftover baked beans straight from the fridge and dig right in, then exclaim with such a passion in his voice: “Is there anything better than baked beans, I ask you?”
Funny thing is he would say the exact same thing every time he’d have mashed potatoes!
He was very adamant on adding lard — a total must for most purists — to his baked beans though, so I’m not sure that he would’ve approved of my “lardless”, vegetarian version… Personally, I never cared for it much and to be honest, I don’t miss the jiggly pieces of soft fat one bit!
Besides, these baked beans they taste so amazingly good, I’m sure my dad would’ve exclaimed just the same about how delicious they were with every new bite.
