Re: Bourbon Beans [Re: BigJim]

I'm second-guessing my choice of the beans to begin this recipe. I purchased the plainest "pork and beans" I could find, so that any added ingredients and flavors wouldn't interfere with the other recipe ingredients. Is that right, or should I take them back and get something a little more robust?

You could try to make a smaller version, like 1/4 batch or something first??

That's a good idea, Carol! Why didn't I think of that .

..sometimes it's the obvious answer that eludes us!

OK, I tested this with the plain pork and beans, and it came out pretty good. I didn't bother with the toppings for my test, and I'm sure they will make it even better. I was afraid that they would be soupy with all the liquid that was already in the beans, but they were not. You can definitely tell there's bourbon in them! I'll go ahead and make them for the cookout with the beans I purchased, and I'm sure everyone will enjoy them.

I need to follow up on these, so no one else makes the mistake I did! Do NOT use plain pork and beans in this recipe! When I made the complete recipe it came out much too soupy! I ended up having to dissemble this after I had baked it and boil the sauce down to get it thicker. Then I just served it in a bowl. I was disappointed in the end result, but I'm sure it's because I used the wrong beans. I think it you used a Boston-style baked bean it would be better.

OK, thanks for the follow-up! Disappointing I know, when it doesn't turn out the way you hoped, especially for company!

Fortunately the cookout wasn't at my house, it was a bring-a-dish affair, so most people didn't know who brought the beans

We were at our place in the mountains, so running to the store to pick up something else to take wasn't an option.

We made them for our Derby party and they turned out great, thanks for the recipe.
