Gerald Hedgerow, son of two famous writers, one a novelist and the other a poet, has finally achieved success on his own . . . or rather, with the help of Miss Grainger, his pen-named alter ego. Unfortunately, though, this sweet, even tempered agony/advice columnist offers fame at a steep price.
Miss Grainger's Favorite Recipe for Baked Beans
6 slices bacon, diced
1 cup chopped Vidalia onion
1 (16-ounce) can pork and beans, drained
1 (16-ounce) can lima beans, drained
1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (10-ounce) package sharp cheddar cheese, cubed
1/2 cup ketchup
3 tbsp. Dijon Mustard
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon French's Worcestershire sauce
Heat oven to 325 degrees. In a small skillet, saute the bacon and onions until the bacon is crisp and onions are lightly browned. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Add bacon-onion mixture; mix well. Pour bean mixture into a large casserole sprayed with Pam. Bake uncovered at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.
