I decided to do everything in this recipe except the hamburger meat since I was serving them today with hamburgers. I went to the cupboard to pull everything out and didn't have a can of pork and beans. I guess I should have known . . .I don't always keep those on hand. I forged ahead anyway and used more bacon than called for but added maple syrup and a sweet peach salsa instead of the white sugar to the mix to add more liquid. I also added garlic to this and put everything on high for about 4 hours. This worked out really well and my company loved it; next time I'll try with actual pork and beans. I love that this goes in the slow cooker; makes it super easy. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Instead of hamburger, I added ground smoked brisket and served at a family reunion. Everyone said it was the best they have ever had. I have shared this recipe many times since. Definitely the all time favorite! Read More

I made these for an impromptu barbecue on Memorial Day. Easy as pie. I left out the bacon because I didn't want to mess with cooking any but that would have added flavor and yumminess to already very tasty recipe. Guests loved it! Read More

This is a good recipe. Good flavor. But it’s so sweet, way too much sugar. Next time I make it I’ll cut it by half. Read More

I got the job of bringing baked beans to a pitch-in while camping so wanted to find a crockpot recipe to make it easier. I cooked up the beef & onion & bacon earlier in the week & froze it in a gallon freezer. I also added the wet ingredients (minus the canned beans) in another baggie & tossed in the cooler. We tossed the frozen meat in the cooler at the beginning of our trip and allowed it to thaw. On the morning of preparation I used a crockpot liner and stirred in all the ingredients. The recipe got rave reviews from everyone at the party! I think I used a slightly different combination of beans based on what I had on hand but mostly followed the recipe. Read More
