Personal Notes:
I came across this recipe several Christmas' ago. We had been given several cans of pork and beans in a Christmas Food Box. I was wondering what we could do with them. I found this recipe and now it has become a recipe that we love to trick people with. It is actually pretty good, but if you tell people what it is first, they tend to shy away from it.
