This side dish is so addictive. It’s the perfect side to take to any potluck. With ground beef cooked into the recipe, it’s hearty and filling too. I love sides like this one and ones like Cowboy Baked Beans and Peaches and Root Beer Baked Beans


These would make a great side of a camping trip, too. Just bake them in a foil-covered dish over indirect heat for about 1 hour.
