Although well suited to accompany a summer barbecue meal, the aroma of these beans baking will welcome anyone coming in from the winter chill. These can make a meal with just the addition of cornbread, or serve them alongside Creole Baked Ham with Cane Syrup Sauce.
- Stir together all ingredients well in a large bowl. Place bean mixture in a 4-quart casserole. Bake, covered, in a 350 degree F. oven until hot and bubbly, about 1- 1 1/4 hours.
