I met up with my neighbor yesterday when he was walking his dog and asked what he was preparing for dinner. For a side dish he was making mashed potato salad. Hmmm? That got me thinking and experimenting and now, just in time for the last official holiday of summer, is a great side dish I created!
I always loved my mom’s baked beans and she used a brand of canned beans that can only be purchased in the Northeastern United States. I have literally tried, for years, to duplicate the taste of those beans, along with my mom’s special additions.
Today, before a family picnic I experimented and came up with this dish. It was an immediate hit and a recipe I would like to share with you.
