Comment on this recipe

"Hating to discard the liquid from the beans, I basted some chicken breasts I was baking with the liquid and they turned out fine."

Ingredients

1 can (14-1/2 ounces) green beans
1 can (15 ounces) kidney beans
1 can (15-1/4 ounces) lima beans
1 can (16 ounces) pork and beans
8 slices bacon, diced
1 large onion, diced
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

Drain all cans of beans, reserving liquid. Brown bacon and onion together in large skillet. Add brown sugar, dry mustard, vinegar and garlic. Lastly add drained beans. Mix well.

Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Add a little of the reserved liquid if mixture becomes too dry.
