Homemade 3 Beans

Homemade 3 Beans

Canned baked beans are delicious, but I am a little biased and think that homemade beans taste a lot better! Not to mention they are lower in salt and sugar. These homemade 3 beans can be cooked in bulk by doubling the recipe to have on hand for a speedy midweek meal. These beans are great on toast, in a jacket potato, nacho bowl, served with rice or cous cous and veggies or paired with salad and bread. 

You can mix and match the beans you use depending on what you like or have available in your pantry.
