I HATE baked beans. But, a bug crawled up my butt today, and I decided I wanted to make some. so, with wreckless abandon, I threw some crap in a baking dish. DEAR LORD!!! I have never tasted anything quite like this. It was simply amazing!!
I did cheat a little, for my base, I just opened a large can of Bush beans. To that, I added a palm full of brown sugar, about 3/4 of a package of shredded cheddar cheese, three strips of bacon (it was all I had) a couple spoonfulls of the bacon grease, and the finishing touch.......a goodsplash of Jim Beam. Gave it a good mixing, and into the oven for half an hour.
My life will never be the same.
