Fall flavor favorites of maple and apple blend with great northern beans to create this unique, crowd-pleasing Maple Apple Baked Beans recipe.
Tart Granny Smith apples -- chopped with the skin still on for more fiber and nutrients -- balance the sweet barbecue sauce and maple syrup. Applewood smoked bacon gets the MVP award for this big-batch side dish.
Remember the winning strategy for better health: Rinse and drain those canned beans and slash the sodium up to 45 percent.
