Serve this traditional American bean dish with barbecued chicken or pork or with bread, rice or potatoes for a vegetarian meal.
This dish is very easy to make - I would venture to think, almost fool proof and smells, looks and tastes great. Quite a bit sweeter than what I thought it would be, so people could reduce the sugar a bit if they are not into sweet tastes but was lovely as is. Perfection with garlicy mashed potatoes! I am going to try freezing it in snap lock bags in small portions and if it works out well, I hope to keep a regular supply to whip out and defrost whenever we feel like some beans on toast for breakfast or something. - 01 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
Was a little slack in the measuring the sauces but I think it was almost close. I did not hold much hope while cooking it but when I tasted it I was so pleased. REALLY nice. Will make it again and again. - 05 May 2013 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
Used different ingredients. I used a combination of red kidney beans, borlotti beans and great northern beans. Instead of bacon, I pulled a bacon hock out of the freezer, partly defrosted it and then just threw it in with the beans to cook in the oven. Afterwards, pulled it out, cut off chunks of bacon and stirred them back in. - 01 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
