"Great to serve with BBQ. Easy to prepare, you can fix it and forget it for a few hours."

"I actually used a homemade sauce which I had made for some pork chops earlier in the week which had chopped peaches in it. These beans were easy and delicious! Everyone at the cookout could not get over how great these are! A sure hit for any occasion!"
"I LOVED these baked beans!! I did make a couple changes...I used real bacon bits, cut out the green pepper (we don't like it), and cut down the brown sugar to 1/4 cup based on other reviews. I cooked these on low but after about 6 hours one side started to burn (I think it's a problem with my crockpot) so I turned it down to keep warm for another 2 hours until the rest of dinner was ready. I will never eat straight-out-of-the-can baked beans again!"
"These are not boston baked beans. Boston baked beans never contain green pepper, catsup or barbeque sauce, and are not made from already prepared baked beans. This is a tasty recipe I'm sure, but it is just named wrong"
"This recipe was very good but too sweet for me. My husband loved it and he had finish it. I'm diabetic and not having eaten anything with added sugar for several years I figured it was just me over reacting to the sweet taste. But looking at the other reviews I realize it really was too sweet. I'll make it again but I'll be sure to cut way back on the sugar. I wish I had read all the reviews before I made it the first time."
"I'll never make baked beans any other way!!!!"
"Couldn't be easier! My crock pot runs a little hot so I had them on low for 5 hours and warm the rest of the time. They came out perfectly. Also, based on other's reviews, I cut back on the sugar. I used 2 tablespoons of Brown Sugar Splenda and they had the perfect amount of sweetness for our group. These were the perfect addition to our 4th of July BBQ. Thank you for posting!"
"A simply wonderful recipe, thank you! I have to admit, being a Texan, I had to kick it up a notch by adding some chopped jalapeno to the mix :)"
"What a great tasting baked bean recipe - and easy too. My favorite kind!!"
"This is how I have been making baked beans for years! The key thing is to drain the canned beans so the other flavors come together nicely. I always serve this with brisket, and, as my oven is tied up all day cooking the brisket, the meal still comes together right on time."
"This was a great recipe to add to -I added dry mustard and horseradish to mine. I also left out the ketchup and decreased the brown sugar to 1/4 cup. I'm anxious to see how it turns out. But the taste as I stirred it was awesome."
"We were pleasantly surprised at how well this turned out; even I, who don't normally care for baked beans, went back for seconds! Since I made this on the spur of the moment tonight, some minor modifications were in order! I found at the last moment that I had no brown sugar, so I substituted 1/3 cup honey and 1 tbsp white sugar. I used frozen diced peppers and onion, raw bacon, and added lots of freshly ground black and red pepper, as well as a dash of salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp Mrs Dash. I also cooked this on the stove rather than the crockpot, simmering it for nearly an hour. Finally, I used drained Pork & Beans instead of Baked Beans. In spite of my 'artistic license' with the recipe, we all loved it, even my DH who has always sworn that baked beans made any way other than his mother's way (beans, maple syrup, brown sugar, and mustard - NOTHING else in it) is absolutely horrible ;) Dawn, thank you for an great recipe that I'll make again!"
"Nice option preparing these baked beans in Crockpot. Low fuss recipe that allows for any addition that you might want. I added sliced hot dogs to mine, along with one shake of Tabasco. Thanks!"
"These were some of the best baked beans I've ever made. I used Bush's vegetarian style beans and instead of frying the bacon, just added it in raw, cut into bite-size pieces, which worked very well. Used red pepper instead of green, hickory bbq sauce and a little extra mustard. After reading a previous comment about them being sweet I decided to cut the sugar down by 2 Tbsp and I'm glad I did because the sweetness was just perfect for my taste. Thanks for the recipe Dawn!"
"This is very good. Usually I go to a lot of trouble, soak beans and all of the etc. that anyone who has made Baked Beans from scratch knows about. This time, however, I just opened a can, added suggested ingredients (plus a shot or two of hot sauce) and a bit later enjoyed the food. And I didn't feel one bit guilty about it. There IS a lot to be said about starting with dried beans and seeing the little darlin's come to life under your spell; on the other hand, there is a lot to be said for convenience, too. Thanks, love the recipe."
"I can't beleive I haven't rated these and I've made them 3 times! These are really good. Pretty sweet, but mmm mmm mmm! Thank you!"
