Baked Beans

Here’s a smaller amount of beans for a family to manage! Interesting that the recipe again calls for pork & beans in a can. It’s probably just the convenience of not having to make the pork & beans, then combine with something else. Baked Beans 1/2 lb hamburger 1/2 lb bacon Brown together and drain … Continue reading

Smoked Sausage Roll
