My husband and I LOVED this recipe. Also love the idea of adding chopped hot dogs before baking. I cooked very crisp bacon and held it aside. Only added it when I pulled the casserole out of the oven by sprinkling liberally over the top. That way it stayed crispy. I would recommend baking the dish at 325 and not 350. It was boiling rapidly when I pulled it out at 350. I don't think this is necessary. This is super easy to put together and super delicious. I will make it many many times. What a great dish for Saturday Night Beans & Franks. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This dish is a hit in my home!! My husband could not stop talking about how good it was the whole time he was eating. I followed the recipe to the letter and added one additional ingredient, cut up hot dogs. I put the hot dogs in just before sliding the dish in the oven. My husband said he wouldn't change a thing. Thank you for the great recipe!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made a few times now because family always request. The only change i made was that i used pinto beans instead of pork and beans. I drain the beans before adding. Came out perfect, not runny. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My boyfriend just made this last night...it was delicious~we both loved it! He made it just as written, baked it...came out perfect, not a bit runny or liquidy as reviewer below experienced. We ate it as the main dish, (it's plenty substantial with the ground beef in it), with just some crunchy french bread on the side. It's a keeper we will be making again and again! Thanks Trisha! item not reviewed by moderator and published
