"Tangy, sweet old fashioned baked beans, are made the easy way in this side dish. This is my grandma's favorite semi home-made recipe. She makes it every Thanksgiving, and we usually end up scraping the pan clean! Never any leftovers!" — AppleBrownBettie

Very simple and easy to prepare! I used Bush's Baked Beans as my base and swapped out the pancake syrup for some molasses. This is a great "semi-homemade" recipe and a great way to perk up a regular 'ol can of baked beans in essence making them "Better Baked Beans"!
Aside from the brand of baked beans I used being much too liquidy, these were pretty good! Nice flavor. I've made similar recipes and enjoyed them, but this is the first I've seen using pancake syrup - and I liked it. Next time I make this I'd be curious to swap it out for real maple syrup. I prepared this a little differently and was very happy with the results - I diced the bacon and sauteed it, then added the onions and cooked them until tender - didn't want to risk ending up with raw onion.
Needed a quick and easy baked bean recipe to take to a campground with our friends. Just the right amount of everything and really delicious! Thanks Apple!
Very easy, using stuff you already have around, quick and pretty good--but mine seemed to be missing something...
These were really good and easy to make. Will be making these again.
These were quite tasty. I made these for a party and everyone liked them. I threw all the ingredients in my crock pot and cooked it for 2 hours on high.
This was a really easy recipe, my husband enjoyed it. I also used real bacon bits because I was in a rush, will use this recipe every time.
Very good baked bean recipe. This is similar to how I make them, but with the addition of the pancake syrup. We really liked the flavor.
