I made this recipe in a slow cooker and substituted pre cooked beef brisket for the bacon. Mmmm. Doubled the recipe for a picnic and it was a HUGE hit. Best tasting beans I've ever had!
Very tasty! I love that they are so easy and quick. These taste just like DH's Grandma's recipe. I omitted the bacon and added a tablespoon of maple syrup instead. My toddler had seconds! These are great heated or cold.
We thought these beans were very tasty. Didn't take very long to make at all. Will make often. Thanks for posting this recipe.
I love this recipe - it's just like mine!! The only difference is that I reduce the bacon to six slices. (I use Oscar Mayer smoked bacon, but maple sounds VERY tempting.) One year I experimented with different types of beans and was very disappointed. So, stay with Bush's Original Baked Beans and you can't go wrong. Many recipes call for diced bacon and mixing it with the beans and I've tried that before, but topping the beans with full bacon slices allows that smoky flavor to permeate the beans perfectly. Many thanks for reminding me how good these are!!
delicious! I loved the way that the onions carmelized-very tasty and easy side dish-thanks for the great recipe-will make again.
These are on the list for our summer bbq's by the pool. Just as easy as the fancier versions of canned and equally as tasty. I'll be making this again and again. My 6yo proclaimed this is her favorite way to eat beans ! Thanks for posting :)
