The Baked Beans Calculator calculates the amount of baked beans you need to cook in order to feed a certain amount of people.  Enter the number of people you need to serve and the serving size per person and you will get the amount of beans you need to cook to meet that demand.
There are several facts that you can assume when figuring out how much you need.

  1. On average a typical serving of baked beans is about a half of a cup. If your guests really love beans you can increase the serving size.
  2. The half cup measure holds true for most sides, you can apply it to potato salad, cole slaw, and just about any other side you might serve at your barbecue.
  3. This calculator adds 5% to the calculation so there is a little extra room for big eaters.

You can go the simple route and just use classic Bush's baked beans or you can put in a little more effort and make your own. Good recipes abound, a few are below.
