BBQ Beans Steal The Show!

Read All About It!

This recipe for these baked beans was originally developed by one of my long time food servers and I “tweaked” the recipe for use at the restaurant with her permission.

I named the restaurant recipe “Dee Dee’s Beans” in her honor.

This restaurant recipe has been used many times because it “serves two masters:” taste and time. It is unbelievably simple but produces such a fabulous result that customers (guests) frequently ask for this favorite restaurant recipe.

Did you know? Native Americans used maple syrup and bear fat with their beans. The early settlers learned how to make baked beans from the Native Americans but used molasses and pork fat instead of the maple syrup and bear fat.
