Fantastic recipe although because the recipe calls for the dish to be covered it was extremely liquid. I ended up cooking much longer uncovered to reduce the liquid and crisp up the bacon. Next time I'll cook uncovered. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The bacon doesn't really cook. If you don't want raw bacon in your dish, cook it first. I also sauteed the onion with diced assorted multi-colored peppers (from a Whole Foods salad bar) in some of the bacon fat and added that. I used low-sodium bacon, as well. I used molasses instead of sugar and syrup. I've been doing this a long time, but I never added bacon or peppers and cooked it in the oven--great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made these to go with pulled pork, cole slaw, cornbread and Neely's BBQ sauce for a family dinner and everyone loved them. I highly recommend doubling the beans, but otherwise follow the recipe exactly. I used 2 - 28-oz cans and it was perfect. I also used applewood smoked bacon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thanks paula Dean, why didnt you go further down the grocery store isle to the Busch's baked beans??? Its kinda redundant to buy pork and beans in a can, the same can that the baked beans are already in! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are my go to beans. They have replaced my mom's recipe. I do cook the bacon and onions first, before adding to the beans. Much better that way. I cook the bacon until just before becoming crispy. They always get rave reviews. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Some good beans here, And easy to cook too!:) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made this recipe and baked the beans for 60 minutes. At the end if the 60 minutes, the bacon and onions were underdone for my taste. I took the lid off and broiled it for three minutes to try to cook the bacon a bit more. Next time I make this recipe I will cook the bacon first and sauté the onion in the rendered bacon fat before adding the rest of the ingredients. The flavor is good, I just would prefer the onions be softer and the bacon be more done and less fatty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is waaay to sweet for baked beans. Tastes more like dessert. and yes I followed the recipe as written. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Cut the mustard by 2/3rds and you have the best pork n' beans you ever had. If you have the time, caramelize those onions and watch these beans evaporate before your own eyes. The 3rd time I made them I added a tea of cumin and a tea of pinto bean seasoning. Wow! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good! I used chicken sausage instead of bacon (lower fat?) and used navy and black beans to make it pretty. DELICIOUS. item not reviewed by moderator and published
