Spicy Baked Beans

DSCN2213

I only make this recipe once or twice a year, and it is such a treat. The bacon makes this dish so wonderful. This recipe also calls for a great sauce that I had the opportunity to try, Country Bob’s sauce. It is full of flavor.  You can find it in Walmart.  I have also done this recipe without the sauce, and it is very good, but this sauce makes the baked beans extra special. You could also substitute 2 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce.
