Hearty Bean Bake

Because it makes such a big batch, this popular four-bean bake is perfect for potlucks...but I like to serve it with rolls and a salad at home too. We take the leftovers for lunch during the week. -Barb Wilkin Coshocton, Ohio

    This is one of the few bean recipes that I have not had to change at all to suit me.

    Which Taste of Home issue was this from? My friend keeps the magazines but can't remember which issue. She thought it might have been from 2008.
