This is a terrific recipe. It is ALWAYS a crowd pleaser. Tastes out of this world and it's always requested again and again as a "bring along" at potlucks. Read More

Although not terribly bad this recipe was definately NOT a hit with my family. I was the only one who ate the most (I hate to waste). Anyone who tried it had one taste and the rest stayed on their plate and went into the garbage. I love how the recipe sounded but the end result was just so-so. Read More

This was the best baked recipe that I have ever tried... I didn't cook them very long in the oven. About 1 hr and they were warm and delicious. I made them a second time and cooked them too long (@ 2 hrs)and the beans got dry. Read More

My wife's family loved this dish. The only change is that I omitted the mushrooms and added some ground beef. I added the onions to the ground beef while browning. I increased all other ingredients to make up for the added gound beef. I used a slow cooker which turned out absolutely wonderful and will be making this again many times over! Read More

This is the best! I usually use fresh mushrooms. I also only bake it for about an hour and sometimes do it in my slow cooker on low for about 3 hours. I've been asked for this recipe so many times. And I like that it's an easy recipe to have all the ingredients already in your home. Read More

The only recipe for baked beans I ever use! I make it vegetarian by omitting the bacon. Bake for about 50 mins and it's perfect. Read More
