Baked Beans

Baked beans are great for breakfast – filling and a serve of vegetables too.  Canned beans are convenient, but full of salt and sugar.  I looked at a lot of recipes to see what the flavourings were and to find an option that didn’t use sugar.

This recipe is based on one I found on the Recipe Community website.  I’ve also caramelized the onions to provide the sweetness that normally comes from sugar.
