In the early 1800s, New Englanders prepared beans in large pots of sauce that cooked for hours in large brick ovens. Slow baking the beans made them tender and brought out the deep flavors of the beans other cooking methods can’t deliver.
When a recipe can stay a favorite and beat the test of time, there is no need to change what works. In 1867, George Burnham started his own food canning business and linked up with Charles Morrill, and Burnham & Morrill was born. In the late 1920s, after perfecting the brick oven baking process for baked beans, Burnham & Morrill launched B&M Baked Beans, the original brand of brick oven-baked beans.
A popular savory classic BBQ side dish is Baked Beans. Store-bought brand names are good, but if you want to whip up something other than the expected potato or macaroni salad, preparing a half tray of homemade baked beans is fast and easy.
