"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!"

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 reg...

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...

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!

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.

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.

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.

I took these beans to a BBQ and everyone loved them, they were gone in minutes. Next time i will make a double batch. :) Thanks for thegreat recipe!
