Yes, these baked beans can be made the day before you need to serve them and then stored in the refrigerator. I have even cooked the bacon and onions 2-3 days prior to the time I needed them.
Can This Recipe Be Frozen?
Technically, these baked beans can be frozen and then thawed in the refrigerator. The texture will suffer though, I’m afraid, so I would recommend just making a large enough batch so that you can use it up in 3-4 days.
