Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I make my baked beans similar to this. I use 2 cans of pork and beans. I saute the onion in margarine and use ketchup instead of tomato sauce. I leave out the syrup and the mustard is the prepared mustard that you use on hot dogs. I also don't use the barbecue sauce. I cook it all on top of the stove and it taste great.

Finally some baked beans I can have! I don't know how many times I've craved baked beans and have looked at the nutrition label on the back of every can of baked beans in the store only to leave empty handed. The carbs are super high! Thanks for this recipe!
