My (wonderful) Aunt used to make the BEST baked beans in the world. Since loosing her to breast cancer last March I have been on the prowl for a recipe close to hers. This is somewhat close. I'm positive that she added brown sugar (which I did not add) and bacon which I did add. This is a good recipe I'm gonna play with it to see if I can get it right the liquid smoke was very distinctive the next day not bad but noticable. Thanks Bob! Peace. Read More

This recipe is definitely easy to put together but nothing special. Easy side dish but nothing earth shattering! Read More

These were really good baked beans. The second time (and every time since) that I made these I added about 1/4 c. yellow mustard 1/4 c. brown sugar and some garlic powder. Hubby loves it this way! Read More

Very tasty! I halved this recipe and baked in a loaf pan. My only addition was 1/4 cup of shredded pork. Topped with 2 strips of bacon before cooking. Read More

Awesome! This reminded me of a recipe my grandmother used to make. She used to add bacon and brown sugar in addition to molasses and hers also took a long time to bake. These were so good and I love the addition of liquid smoke. I will definitely use this recipe over the summer! Read More

This is very tasty. I think I used bush's baked beans (original) which already had some sugar in it and the recipe came out a bit too sweet for me. Maybe I'll just use plain beans next time. Regardless the flavor was excellent. I'll make again. Read More
