OK, I'm going to tell you how I like my beans, my whole family eats them this way, but it grosses out my husband. Plate of beans and a big slice of cornbread and a big spoon of mayonaise, yummy...I think its a Kentucky thing...

If made by following the directions, I would give this recipe 3-4 stars. I did follow previous advice. I used 2 lbs of beans, but doubled the seasonings. However, I still found it good, but slightly bland. Then, I mixed in a squirt of ketchup with every serving, and it's GREAT!!!! I would not suggest doubling the salt, however.
