This is not so much a recipes as a method or idea… I don’t like hard crusty garlic bread so I tried this out one night for spaghetti and declared it a success, I softened 1 cube butter and sprinkled approximately 1 tsp garlic powder over it a then sprinkled maybe a 1/2c. of grated Parmesan cheese on that and mixed it up till it was nice and thick but easy to spread I had about 8 to 10 slices of sour dough bread (the kind that has flat bottom but are too large to fit in most toasters) spread with mixtures have a flat griddle hot and ready place mixture side down and cook till lightly golden brown. Nice đŸ™‚

  • 2 cups Dry Navy Beans
  • 6 cups Cold Water
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 lbs Bacon Ends (poor quality ask butcher if you can’t find it)
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • 2 tsp Dry Mustard
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar firmly packed
  • 1/4 cup Dark Molasses

Wash beans. Combine beans & cold water in large pot. Bring to boil; boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat let stand for 1 hour, or you can do as I do and soak the beans over night. Add Salt; simmer about 1 hour or until beans are tender. Drain, reserving 1 3/4c liquid, add water if needed to achieve 1 3/4c set aside. Cook bacon till crisp reserving some fat for later, crumble bacon set bacon aside, place beans into a backing dish or pot capable of going into the oven, mix mustard, bacon and some of the bacon fat, sugar & molasses into bean liquid; and pour over beans. Cover and bake at 300 degrees for 5 to 7 hours yes that is right I said 5 to 7 hours, add water if needed.

I highly recommend lining your cooking sheet with foil because the honey will burn.

Bake in the oven at 450 for 30 to 40 minutes
