A big pot of sweet-and-savory baked beans is summer's essential side dish! The perfect partner for potlucks, picnics, barbecues -- for so many main dishes we love: burgers, BBQ ribs, and fried chicken.

We've gathered together a batch of top-rated baked beans recipes featuring secret ingredients that vault them straight to the top -- and we've thrown in a few tips to help you make perfect baked beans.
