A dear friend of mine gave me this recipe after his son kept telling me his dad's beans were better than mine! As soon as I tasted them I knew he was right and this recipe was a keeper.

Excellent recipe. I like to cook it in my slow cooker. It is great to take to pot luck meals. You can use pretty much any kind of canned beans you like too (I'm not real fond of limas). Read More

I have mixed feelings about this recipe. My boyfriend and the boys at work (it made heaps of leftovers!) really liked it but I had to make A LOT of changes. I added just 2 tablespoons of ketchup and a sprinkling of brown sugar as they are both very sweet. The sauce in the can of baked beans is also sweet so you can imagine how sickly it tasted. I then added some garlic, tomato paste. tobascco sauce, chili powder & thyme which took some of the sweetness away. It sure did need all this extra flavour. I also just let it simmer on the stove top rather than finish it off in the over. With these changes it makes nice Sunday 'mince on toast' but that's about it. Read More

Make these even better by adding a ring of klielbasa sliced and a splash of dry white wine. Why? I don't know just because I had some. We call these "hillbilly beans" and when we all get together I'm asked to make these. By the way throw them in the crockpot for a few hours instead of heating up the kitchen. Read More

My husband and 5 yr old liked it. My 3 yr old took one look and decided he'd skip lunch. I thought it was ok but a bit too sweet. Read More

This is very tasty. I added less brown sugar about 1/4 cup. This is a real keeper! Read More

We really enjoyed these beans. They were a little on the sweet side for my taste so next time I will cut back on the brown sugar to maybe 1/4 cup. My family had no complaints though! Read More
