Recipe Comments & Reviews

Would not make again. Tasted like you were eating a can of baked beans.
I just made this and they loved it. They asked for more. It was easy to make and it tasted scrumptious.
This is a wonderful meal. My whole family loved it. It is a new family favorite. Only problem I had was I bought bush's baked beans which already have brown sugar in them. I should have halved the brown sugar. Excellent anyway just a bit too sweet.
Have made this serveral times. It is a family favorite. With a green salad and fresh hot cornbread, it is a sure winner.
