lorraines baked beans

Lorraine sent along her delicious baked beans recipe that she thought you would enjoy eating with your Thanksgiving brunch this weekend!

Her family typically eats these with a green salad and gluten free bread or buns.  But, on occasion, they have this bean recipe for breakfast with toast or a bagel for a complete protein and some fruit. This provides a meal that contains many vitamins and minerals and has a good dose of fibre and it is a frugal way of feeding your family!
