My mother and grandmother once ran a beanery for a train crew, which inspired a lot of my cooking. I adapted this recipe from one of theirs. The secret ingredient is the applesauce. When everything is cooked up, you wouldn’t guess that it’s in there, but the taste’s just a bit sweeter. —Donna Hellendrung, Mineapolis, Minnesota
