Grandma Brown's Baked Beans



Are you loyal to hometown brands?
I have been using these beans for over 40 years. Empty them into a baking dish. Add some ketchup and mustard, some brown sugar, caramelized onions and a little maple syrup. Top with strips of bacon or crumbled bacon and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until the bacon is cooked and the beans are bubbly. There you have it: a quintessential Central New York side dish, for summer or any other season. 
Grandma Brown’s Baked Beans got their start in 1937, during the Great Depression, when Lulu Brown, of Mexico (New York), began making large pans of baked beans and selling them in local grocery stores. The beans were so well received that her husband, Earl, and her son Robert E. Brown, decided to sell them.

Thank you for stopping by. I'm still getting used to this new blogger platform. I haven't blogged enough to master it :-)

  2. We have almost the same recipe here in the south, just a different brand. Made this a million times while our family was young. I still enjoy making this dish for patriotic holidays. Now I'm wanting this so may make it today! Thanks for sharing your recipe and a bit of history.......hugs.

  3. I’ve never seen that brand, Debbie, but I love the name. My mom always added ketchup, and brown sugar to canned beans. You know which ones I make now!

  4. And have you ever added hot dogs? Long strips! We prefer Bush's Baked Beans but I prepare them the same way!
