The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars, is because I needed to adjust the ketchup and molasses. Made as written, it was too bland for my taste. I'm not use how much I adjusted; I just kept adding until it tasted correct. I too lessened the water and brown sugar to 1/2 cup each. I also sauteed the onion in some bacon fat for some added flavor. With my adjustments, we loved it.

First Homemade BB I have tried. Really great basic recipe. I made small adjustments just based on common sense and what my family and friends tend to like flavor wise and its definitely a hit!

I really thought this was great & super easy. I will never eat premade canned beans again! I totally forgot to add the brown sugar which was a good thing. I added extra bacon though, and sautéed my onion in the bacon fat before mixing! Delish...thank you!

I submitted this version and what I created originally does not show 1 cup water. Perhaps that was added by Allrecipes when it was published. That would definitely make it too soupy in my opinion. One tip is that I often use the pre-cooked bacon and it works just as well and saves a step.

Very good basic recipe, and I liked that it didn't call for a can of pork and beans/baked beans in the ingredients like so many others! I made this for the 4th of July when I realized at the last minute that I didn't have any canned beans to have with dinner. I used 2 cans pinto beans (because that's what I had on hand), substituted honey for the molasses (because we didn't have any), reduced the brown sugar to 1/2C. and omitted the bacon because I didn't want to wait for it to thaw. I didn't have time to bake them, so I cooked them on the stovetop for about 40 minutes while waiting for my husband to cook the hot dogs. Next time I will definitely do them in the crock pot or oven as the beans were a little too firm. But the flavor was PERFECT!

Basic taste very good, very easy to make..."good enough for guests". BUT...too sweet for us, also a little watery - the latter is surprising as I baked it uncovered and for longer than called for. We will cut the brown sugar in half, will compensate by adding a little more molasses. Also will cut the water in half. I baked it longer than called for because we like a "crust".
