Just a tad too sweet, otherwise perfection!

I like this recipe very well with the addition of crumbled bacon mixed with the beans and a little bit of crushed red pepper chillis for an additional bite. Very easy and frugal for a good side dish. Thanks...

These are great! I loved the addition of the bacon grease. I did like others suggested and only used half the amount of sugar. Very easy to prepare and tasty too. Thanks for posting.
