This is so similar to baked beans that my mother-in-law used to make. I think the ingredients are the same but the way she made them was different. She cooked the bacon first and added that crumbled up to the beans instead of on top. Then she'd cook the onions in the bacon fat until they were clear. Then add the cooked onions and everything else to the beans and cook for a much shorter time in the oven. An hour or maybe less. That's how I've been making them and they're fantastic! Excellent, easy, fast recipe for baked beans: the way they were meant to be. Thanks for this recipe! Read More

This recipe was VERY sweet. Too sweet for my taste. I used canned baked beans. Was the recipe supposed to read canned pork and beans? The sugar from the canned beans plus the molasses and brown sugar added was a bit much. Read More

This is a very nice recipe. I followed the ingredients to the letter; however I sped up the process. I browned the bacon and sauted the onions on the stove top - added the rest and heated through. Once heated through I transferred to a crockpot to finish cooking on low 2-3 hours. Read More

I made these beans scaled to serve 100 for a wedding recption. I received more comments on them than I can count. They were quick & easy. The longest preparation item is cooking the bacon. The only downfall is they really do need to bake 3 hours or they are a bit runny. Then again that is a just a matter of preference. Read More

Great recipe I made these in my slow cooker and they turned out great. Everyone loved them in fact there weren't any leftovers. I followed the recipe exact except I added a bit of liquid smoke. Yum Yum. Read More

Given the amount of molasses and brown sugar in this recipe, I can only rate this a weak two stars. I used half the amount of each and hubs said if I had used what was called for it would have tasted only of molasses and sugar. I sauteed the bacon and onion and added it to the beans with the remaining ingredients, then just threw it in the slow cooker. While these beans were acceptable (three stars with half the sugar and molasses), they are not extraordinary in any way. Frankly, I think a can of Bush's Homestyle Baked Beans would have been just as good without the additional effort of doctoring up a can of pork and beans. Read More

Quick and easy! This is a classic picnic side dish that's always a hit at BBQ's. Other than cutting back on the molasses and brown sugar then adding a bit of liquid smoke I wouldn't change a thing. This definitely is a great way to take a regular 'ol can of baked beans and turn them into something special without a lot of effort! Read More
