Johnn Sterzer’s Fabulous Baked Beans

Share Button

My dad does not possess a large repertoire of cooking skills, but there were a few things that he has mastered… and one of these is baked beans!  My dad used to make these for camp outs, barbecues, picnics, and occasionally just because.  And every time he did?  No leftovers.  He made them for us a few weeks ago when we came over to watch a BYU basketball game with him.  He hadn’t made them for awhile, and I was reminded of just how good his recipe is.  I snapped this picture before I dug in, because I knew this was a recipe that must be shared.  So thanks for being our guest cook today, Dad.  Your girls love you!

    I made these for a backyard campout we are having tonight and I thought, “I should post these!” I checked here to see if one of my sisters already had (because I couldn’t remember), and here it is! :) This is the BEST baked bean recipe ever!!

    I have a dumb question. I really have NO idea how my big pot would do in the oven. It has the rubber covered handles and is a non stick pot. What do you think?
