This recipe isn’t completely “from scratch” because it uses prepared beans, but still, this could be yummy for a barbecue or other large gathering. Because can your family eat 6 pounds of beans? Mine can’t. And, imagine the flatulence, oh my. Also, if you have a Costco or other wholesale type store available to you, that is where you should look for your institutional sized cans of beans. I believe the sausages called for here might be the kielbasa type, but if you know different please let us know.
Home Style Baked Beans
There are supermarkets in various parts of the country that carry the institutional size canned foods. Check the supermarkets in your area, and if they carry the 6 pound, 14 ounce size of pork and beans, this recipe will be even more economical.
