"My husband does not like baked beans but can't get enough of these. They are loaded with a variety of meats and get a little bit of sweetness from molasses and brown sugar. If you don't have a slow cooker, you can bake them in the oven until heated through. "

AS A BAKED BEANAHOLIC, I CAN SAY THESE WERE ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I FOLLOWED THE RECIPE TO THE T [CAN'T UNDERSTAND CHANGING A RECIPE UNTIL YOU'VE TRIED IT]& IT WAS EASY, DELICIOUS, & MAKES A LOT. IT IS INDEED A MEAL IN ITSELF, & A SLICE OF FRESH BREAD/BUTTER MAKES IT TRUE COMFORT FOOD! THANKS FOR A TRUE KEEPER!
Very disappointing. I followed the recipe exactly and it still tasted like beans right out of the can---with a lot of meat added. Very time consuming and not at all worth the effort.
LOVED this recipe!! I did make one substitution and that was for the ham (didn't have). I used finely chopped bbq pork. For the ground beef, I had some leftover hot dog sauce (Grandpa' Classic Coney Dog Sauce recipe) that I used. I've made many baked beans recipes and my guests and I really liked the flavors this dish had. It's almost a meal by itself. I had always cooked my beans in the oven for at least an hour prior to this recipe. I really liked the ease of putting all the ingredients into the crockpot and letting cook on high for 2 hours. Next time, I will add the water as needed after stirring occasionally for a thicker sauce. Can't wait to make these again for our next big BBQ bash!
I added a bag of "bean meat", leftover scraps of smoked brisket and smoked pork butt I always save and freeze after slicing a brisket or pulling a butt for pulled pork. Then I cooked these on my smoker with pecan, stirring frequently to impart nice smokey flavor. GOOD EATS MAYNARD!!!
These are soooo delish!!! I have made these several times & I always get so many compliments on them! I have used smoked sausage and ham, in addition to the bacon & ground beef. Just so yummy!
This was very good..tho next time I will add sliced sausage as the ham was dry and not very tasty. Will definatly make again.
WOW--- wow, wow, wow!!!! What a dish! I followed it to the letter....except, I had smoked a beef brisket yesterday, and couldn't resist chopping and adding some to these beans! These are delicious! My husband will go crazy when he tastes these! It really is a meal in itself. I think I am going to make some coleslaw and good crusty bread or Texas toast to go with it! This will feed a crowd! I have tried similar meat and bean recipes, but this recipe 'rocks'!! I'll make this again and again!!! Thank you so much to the person who posted this!!!
Great recipe. It took a long time to put together, but disappeared fast at a potluck. I overheard quite a few people saying, "who brought those great beans?" I may use this recipe for every potluck I attend in the future! Thanks.
