I was looking for an easy bean dish so I decided to give this one a try. The bacon, hamburger, and the different varieties of beans were a perfect combination! Today I found myself sneaking into the fridge and taking out a spoonful every now and again. FABULOUS COLD! I only added 1 1/1 tsp of the liquid smoke and I felt that it still overpowered the beans just a bit. (It obviously hasn't stopped me from dipping into the leftovers!) My reasons could be that I have never really cooked with this flavoring. Next time I make this dish I think I'll add just 3/4 tsp or a whole one. YUM!
Finally someone has put on the web the right recipe! Everyone else has changed the ingredients. I have been making this recipe since it came with the crockpot and wore out the book! My son is now making it and needed the recipe and I was having a hard time locating it. I make this for all events. Thank you so much.
My MIL makes these beans and they are soooo tasty! One day i'll have to try them on my own.
