I used to be actually pleased with the best way my Bourbon Mango Pulled Summer season Squash Sandwiches turned out, notably the sauce. As quickly as we have been completed consuming, I began occupied with different issues I might do with it. One of many concepts I had was to make baked beans. It took just a little bit of labor (and even some math—gasp!) to determine easy methods to make this recipe end up proper, however I believe I succeeded—these are conventional baked beans with a twist! This recipe for Bourbon Mango Gradual Cooker Baked Beans is ideal for a summer time barbecue or potluck—belief me, it makes sufficient to feed a small military. Use leftovers to make baked bean sandwiches or Vegetarian Shipwreck Casserole.
