Bean & Bacon Bake

Today we had our church Thanksgiving meal. The dish that I took was called Bean & Bacon Bake. The picture didn't look the greatest so I decided not to post it but these really are very yummy. They are special to me because the first time I ever tried them was at the reception after my dad's (Kayla's grandpa's) funeral. A close friend of the family, Kathy, had made them and they were delicious! She graciously shared her recipe with me that a friend of her Grandma's had given her Grandma around 1955. Be prepared for your whole house to smell wonderful while these beans are baking. Mmmm!
