Sometimes I wonder when we pair up two of these comfort foods how we got to these rankings. Baked Beans is a comfort food? Well, not to anyone in the room with the person that had some! Yet, here we are pitting a food made famous in a scene from the great comedy, “Blazing Saddles” vs a slow cooker food legend. Beef Stew is the favorite here at #8 vs #9 Baked Beans. I am not sure this fight is fair, but I have been wrong before. Can a beefy family dish recipe that everyone seems to have in their home in, lose to a gassy delicacy? Let us call a spade a spade here, baked beans is a side dish that makes you fart and Beef Stew is a meal, I mean a hearty food with delicious veggies that you can to pick out if you do not like them. Baked Beans, well you can add bacon or hot dogs or sausage, maybe some bbq sauce or brown sugar, but it is pretty much just beans. Both dishes are so different it is so hard to compare the two. In the end, farts will happen and there is nothing a vote can do about it. I still urge you to vote below for your favorite of the two in this week’s Comfort Food Showdown.
