Found this recipe to be a little on the dry side and we didn't think the marriage of green beans and pork and beans was a good one.

I left out the brown sugar entirely as the pork and beans already had molasses or brown sugar in them. I did add some cooked noodles to make the meal more substantial. To counteract the dryness next time, I am going to try 8 ounces of tomato sauce. I will definitely leave out the green beans.

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.
