Left over baked beans
We were to provide the baked beans for a gathering yesterday that got cancelled at the last minute. Tried to give them away but the neighbors all have their own Easter leftovers. My question is can they be frozen and/or is there something unusual I can do with them, such as making a soup?
Beans & franks ... mmmmm, confort food! Leftover ham instead of franks?
Or save 'em (they should keep 3 or 4 days)
You can freeze them. They don't go to mush but they are not pristine enough to bring to a cookout.
Consider adding them to chili. If you think they are too doped up for that you can rinse them a bit and then add them, but really there is no need.
Me, I make tater salad. I heat up the beans and plunk cold salad over the beans... heaven!
A dish we made when we were penniless students that is better than it sounds: fry bacon, remove bacon and fry sliced onions in the bacon fat, then add baked beans and bacon and stir in whatever for extra flavor; ketchup, sriracha, etc.
