Heidi’s Famous Baked Beans are the perfect side for any barbecue. It’s hard to find something everyone loves but these beans are always the first to go at potlucks!

Here in Florida we’re not by any of our family so when holidays come around we spend them with our best friends, the Clarks. We automatically know we will spend the holidays together and what each of us will bring. The Clarks always bring their Gooey Potatoes and these fabulous Baked Beans.

They get asked for the recipe wherever they bring them. With BBQ season upon these would be a great and easy side dish to bring. And did I mention *sniff* that the Clarks are leaving us in a couple of weeks. We both are trying to pretend it’s not happening…
