I served these baked beans as a side dish whenever I served BBQ dishes.  Someone gave me a recipe for Sitara's baked beansthis kind of baked beans years ago and I adapted it to my own way of doing things.  I think my version is way superior.   But please, feel free to do your own thing as well.   For instance, if you want them to be more vegeterian, leave out the ground beef.  Vary the beans according to your tastes as well.  If butter beans turn you off, use pinto beans or white beans.
