This is a good easy dish to prepare that everyone likes. I make it even easier by using my crock pot to heat it. Adding 1/2 tsp of liquid smoke is a good variation and makes it more interesting also Read More

Very delicious. Got rave reviews when I made this for a large group. I put all ingredients in the crock pot on low for several hours after browning the meat onion and bacon on the stove. YUMMY!!!!! Wouldn't change a thing. Read More

Easy to prepare. I used honey and maple syrup since there was no brown sugar in the house. They came out great! Don't forget to cover the dish before baking. Read More

I make this a lot when my family goes to our ranch for the weekend. Men love this! I have two variations--I use lima beans instead of northern beans and I skip the molasses. One morning we had a few leftovers and mixed the bean dish with scrambled eggs--it was delicious!!! Read More

This is a great recipe and my hubby LOVES it. I would leave out the bacon though as it didn't really add anything. The only complaint I might have is that the beans are kind of dry. Read More

These were good but to us they needed a little something added to the flavor. They are good heated the next day or in a sandwich too. thanks. Read More

SO EASY! Browned the ground beef and onions on the stovetop (I did not have bacon) then transferred them to the crockpot. Dumped drained beans into the crockpot one by one (I also added pinto beans just because I LOVE them). Then I mixed the 'sauce' ingredients together in a glass measuring cup stirred and added to the crockpot. It was a tad 'dry' (likely from adding the extra can of beans) SO I added 1/2 cup of hot water. PERFECT!! Let them cook on High for an hour and then turned it down to Low for another hour. I used a regular sized Crockpot and it was FULL to the brim. Everyone (read: KIDS) loved this dish. Follow the recipe seasonings and you won't be disappointed. Read More
