I cannot believe that I didn't review this. I have made them several times for home and to take to church for a pot-luck supper. Everyone loved them. For years I made my own the old-fashioned way, but now that I am older, I am lazier. I made them as Richard wrote the recipe but then the last few times, I added a tad less sugar. I did used fresh onion, about one small, minced. They are easy and sooooo good. After having beans EVERY Saturday night (Maine tradition) all of my life, I can say that these are wonderful even though they are not soaked overnight and baked all day. Thanks Richard for making my life on Saturday easier.
This recipe really surprised me I actually liked it! I made it thinking "I don't like baked beans" and found the opposite. I didn't have pork n beans as our shops don't sell them so I made it with kidney beans and otherwise followed the recipe. Will make it again.
Since I don't like too sugary food, I noted the reviews and only used 1/4 cup BBQ sauce, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 molasses, 1 small onion and no mustard since I did not have any. I baked it for 1 hour. Very Very good. I don't like beans normally but I love these. Thank you for posting the recipe.
This was a good recipe. I used Van Camps pork and beans and cooked for 3 hours on low. Might try a different brand next time as these were a little mushier than I liked (think they started out too soft right out of the can). Flavor was really good though. Thank you for posting.
Really good beans. Just what I was craving. I left out the bacon, cuz I wanted to cut fat and calories.
What a delicious, easy recipe! I did reduce the brown sugar to 3/4 cup, added 2T minced green pepper, and cooked these in the crock pot on low for about 4 hours. Lovely flavor. Thanks to you and your aunt for sharing.
I needed a quick baked bean substitute, and this filled the bill. It's easy and tastes good, but aye-yi-yi! Look at how much sugar and carbs are in this dish! It's not a vegetable side dish at all--more like candy. I hesitated to give this very sweet recipe four stars, but did so because everyone at the table seemed to enjoy them so much. I should quit reading the nutrition facts--takes the fun out of eating.
I've only tried these twice, but everyone loves them and they're easy! I was in a hurry the 2nd time, so I heated them thoroughly on the stove and then put them in the oven @ 475 for 20-25 mins, they still raved!
Yum! I made this in my crock pot, cooked it for about 4 hours on low and it turned out just great. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
Fantastic recipe Richard! This is the highest rated recipe for Baked Beans on 'Zaar, and after making these for a cookout I went too, I can see why! I chose regular Van de Kamp beans because they seemed like a good choice, kind of bland without much seasoning. I threw everything in my crockpot and cooked on low for 4 hours and then just turned it on to warm. Everyone raved, and I gave out several copies of the recipe. Thanks again buddy for posting this winner!
