My very favorite recipe for baked beans is this one (also below) but when I don't have time to prepare from scratch, Pineapple Baked Beans is an easy and delicious alternative.
Many years ago, my cousin, Tammy was married in Hawaii. Her sister hosted a reception on Tammy & Wayne's return with a Hawaiian theme and I shared this recipe with her.
