I had a craving for baked beans and have them going in the crockpot right now ( smells great). Now I'm trying to figure out what to serve with them.
Growing up my family always had ham and mac and cheese and beans. My DH grew up having beanie weanies (hot dogs cut up in beans)...but I'm veggie and trying to come up with a yummy veggie meal based around baked beans.
We sometimes have baked beans, corn bread and cooked spinach (or another green) or, if we're feeling really retro, we'll have boca smoked sausages or morningstar farms not dogs along with some other goodies.
Mmmm, baked beans--I'm inviting myself to your house for dinner!
i love it with a side salad .. although if you mix up some cornbread mix and put it on top of the beans in the crockpot for the last hour or so of cooking, it cooks itself we do it with chili too. plus it soaks up a bunch of that yummy "bean juice"
