"Blow em Away" Beans? Kind of an unfortunate title, LMAO!!!

Sounds good. Do you have any recipes to makes Boston Baked Beans from scratch with dried beans? I'd like to make baked beans from scratch.

Hello! Unfortunately, we do not have any baked bean recipes that start with dried beans on our website, but you can find one in our "Cook it Slow, Cook it Fast" cookbook. We'll definitely consider adding a from-scratch recipe for these in the future. :)

I definitely think I've eaten something like this at a summer graduation party.

Double the recipe, it's that good.

This recipe was gross. All that work just for it to taste like a can of baked beans. I will never make this again.

My husband will love this one. He is a bean lover!


gabuckeyebuckeye 1075662 - Hahahahahahahah. I'm with you on the butter! :D

These beans are delicious and so easy. Perfect when I want to make baked beans on a week night for dinner. I used Bush baked beans and they were plenty bubbly. Great one here.

thank you so much, mr.Food!!!!! my mom and my brother and my dad just loved thease!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)

Made this for July 4th. Disaster! I started with Grandma Brown's baked beans, and they came out like a dry brick. I laughed when I saw "until bubbly". What brand did people use to have more liquidy beans?

LOVED THIS!!! The crunch you get with every bite is sooo worth it!

Why would you need to put butter in this?

Why NOT??

Looks good!!

Looks good!!

Looks good!!

Sounds good, alright, and easy. But Jeez, the french fried onions cost more than the beans!

Buy them at WALMART (in a bag). Good.

Thank you and so delicious..

Luv this easy recipe. (Great)
