I made this dish for a bbq. The changes I made were that I didn't use the bacon, used vegetarian baked beans, and cooked in a crockpot instead of the oven. These were a complete hit! Thank you for offering such a wonderful and delious recipe!

I didn't care for this recipe. It seemed like a lot of work for something that didn't taste that good. I would've been more content opening a can of baked beans and eating that. My husband enjoyed this dish more than I did, but he also didn't spend all the time preparing it. I won't make this again.

This is a recipe that I have beem looking for and finally found thanks to responses from folks in the community area of the web site. I made just put everything in a crock pot, and cooked it on low for about 6 hours. The only difference is I used Splenda Brown Sugar instead of regular brown sugar. Excellent recipe and thanks JOAN for sharing it! Happy Day! Heart

Let me start off by saying that normally I do not like garbanzo beans or Lima beans or butter beans. I made it though because I hadn't had them since I was a kid and my kids have never tried them. This recipe was rated so highly I thought it would be worth trying. IT WAS SO GOOD! I added a smoked sausage to it cut into coins and made corn muffins and had it as a main dish. It was so good. Thank you for this delicious recipe.

Made for a party of 11 adults and 3 kids around 7-9 yrs of age. It was the hit of the party surpassing chicken nuggets. I put it in a slow cooker and just let it go for at least five hours. Still outstanding!! My husband says "Put that in your 'keeper' file!

Great recipe! Very easy and very tasty. I substituted ground beef for bacon and it turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe was excellent, could not find canned butter beans so I used a can of cannelli beans instead.

If I could give this more than five stars, I would. We absolutely loved this bean salad! I didn't have any cider vinegar, so I substituted white and it turned out wonderful. Thank you so much for the recipe, Joan!!!
