I tried Anna's Schoolhouse Baked Beans. The reason being that it seemed very like something my mother used to make, and I never knew her method. So, I tried Anna's.
It has a nice flavor, but it got a little thick - I won't cook it so long next time. My mother didn't use any bacon, but had cut-up hot dogs in hers. And plenty of onion, which may have been sauteed with the hot dogs, but I'm not sure. Anyway, this is good and now I've got a starting point.
