Cowboy Beans




These are the best baked beans! When we have a fish fry or cookout, like we are today, I leave out the hamburger meat. Those of you that know me, know that I hate onions! I always use onion powder instead. I would recommend sautéing the onions in a little bit of the bacon grease if you are making this for a side dish & omitting the hamburger.
