These are the best baked beans in the world! I left out the limas(don't like them) and depending on picky eaters, can use onion powder in place of onions. O.K. I'm back (4/8/07)Tried them with limas,Surprise!,they are still the best. Used Apple flavored liquid smoke. Good enough to be a bean stew (add diced tomatoes and chopped green peppers) This is a meal in a beanpot!
Sorry to say it, but these weren't the best beans I've eaten. Made them on Sunday for a small party and no one even commented on them. Aunt Ro's Beans on this website were waaaay better.
These are delicious! I cooked everything up the night before and put it in my crockpot. The next morning I put them on low for about 5 hours. They were a real hit!
These beans are excellent! I put mine in the crock pot for nine hours and served with cornbread for a delicious main course meal. Also, it is possible to substitute ketchup for the barbeque sauce, just increase the vinegar to 3T. and the smoke flavoring to 1T.
These beans were scrumptious; everyone in the family ate them and asked for more! They would be a great addition to a potluck. I had to sub black beans for the lima beans, but other than that I followed the recipe as directed, adding the optional liquid smoke. These will be a staple in our bean loving family!
I made this recipe for a potluck and let me tewll you these are the best beans ive ever had!!I still cant beleive i made something hat tastes this good!
This recipe was great! I also left out the Lima beans and added a touch of extra bacon, beef, and brown sugar. My husband loved it!
I made this for a family reunion. It was super easy to throw together before the party and everyone loved it. I was asked for the recipe by many people at the party!
