Settlers Beans – This recipe uses a flavorful base and a secret sauce to make them the BEST baked beans ever! (Gluten free, dairy free)
I love making friends with people who love cooking. Not only do we have endless foods and restaurants to discuss and cookware to fawn over at length (why hello, Le Cruset Dutch ovens), I get all kinds of new recipes to try!
Several years ago, we had the pleasure of meeting our friends Tim and Casey. Tim and Casey are both incredible home chefs, and Tim has blown our mind with several of his grilling recipes over the years. It was at their house I first tried Settlers Beans and basically my life has never been the same.
We’ve adapted their recipes a bit over the years, but it is a truth universally acknowledged, dear reader, that any time someone says the words “start with a half pound of bacon,” pretty much whatever follows is sure to be delicious.
This recipe for the BEST baked beans of your life certainly doesn’t disappoint. And I forever have Tim and Casey to thank for it!
