This recipe is a slight twist on traditional baked beans, called New Calico Beans.

This recipe was submitted by Karen Appledorn, a longtime fan of Randall Beans.  Here’s what she had to say:

This was originally a recipe I had from my sister and ‘doctored’ it to get it how we liked it especially with the Randall Mixed Beans! We’re always asked to bring these to all of the picnics and potlucks we attend. They are usually served with BBQ, hot dogs, hamburgers or brats. However, they can be a meal on their own with all of that meat in them.

As you can see, this hearty dish pairs equally as well with grilled hotdogs as it does with a nice wine. Try if for yourself, and give your compliments to Karen!
