Baked Bean Starter

When it comes to picnics and barbecues, old-fashioned baked beans are on just about everyone's list of "must-have" side dishes. With our starter on your pantry shelf, it's easy to enjoy the smoky-sweet flavors of this country-style classic whenever the mood strikes. We've combined sun-ripened tomatoes with sweet molasses, tangy mustard and our own special blend of spices, slowly simmering the ingredients for authentic down-home flavor. 17 oz. Made in USA. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Not that Easy to Make but Good Flavor
February 25, 2013
I used dried beans and soaked them overnight. The finished product was good, but I don't think it was worth the extra effort. I'm sure using canned beans would be a lot easier.
Pros: Good for Entertaining, Flavor
Cons: Time to Prepare

Can baked beans really be the "star" of a summer potluck? Yep....and this Baked Bean Starter is how. I had so many compliments on my baked beans, I almost felt guilty they were not more difficult. I did parcook my beans in the microwave to make the process quicker, and added leftover brisket instead of the optional bacon, but it is the starter that makes the dish. It has a smokey, rich flavor and it's aroma fills your kitchen, leaving everyone ready to sample, spoons in hand!
Pros: Easy to Prepare, Authentic, Quality, Good for Entertaining, Time-saver, Flavor, Great Gift
Cons: price
