Baked beans with baked bean flavors (ketchup, mustard, molasses, brown sugar, dry mustard, a bit of thick bbq sauce, beans of course and throw in some already cooked ground beef then bake until thick - and lots of chopped onions). Roughly...that is close anyway.

Edited to say I just found this recipe - maybe you can take a look and go from there. I hate it when you can't get a wonderful recipe!!!!! :-(

Yep ... pork-n-beans lack the flavors and sweetness of baked beans. Using one instead of the other will give you similar dishes with significantly different flavors.

If you want a basic "quick" dish - you can used canned baked beans - you can add a little brown sugar if not sweet enough. If you want to use pork-n-beans - you need to gussy up the flavor a little more with some sauteed chopped smoked bacon, mustard, ketchup, brown sugar, chopped onion, etc.

If you want something "slow cooked" - you can just brown up the ground beef and onions, drain, and add to a pot along with the rest of the ingredients for made-from-scratch baked beans - either baked in the oven or a crock pot.

Michael, when I don't want to make my own baked beans I use the Bush's - mix some flavors and still add all those things I mentioned. It turns out pretty good! Pork & Beans - ICK!

after tonight I agree with you KE...no more pork and beans!! But I have always liked Bushes and what is the other brand...BW? I just add in stuff like onions bacon and sometimes brown sugar. I was looking for an ultra quick and easy tonight and it backfired....although my DD enjoyed it mixed in jasmine rice!

My MIL makes "Calico Beans".... sounds the same as Constance's...
I made them once and I can't find the recipe..... thanks for reminding me because I've been wanting to make them again.
I'll see her at work tomorrow and maybe she remembers it off the top of her head, she makes them alot. If not, she can email it to me.
