Reviews for Baked Beans with Pineapple
"Anxious to try this. Reminds me of a long-lost recipe my Mother used make. Her recipe had chunks of hot dogs and maybe a little horseradish in it."
"LOVE LOVE LOVE"
"Fantastic! I used 1/2 cup chili sauce because I prefer it over ketchup! Thanks for posting!"
"I brought this to a party, it was a huge hit. Thanks for sharing!"
"This is becoming a favorite at every family get-together! I put all the ingredients in a slow cooker and let it cook for about 6 hours, yum!!"
"Always get requests for this one!"
"DELICIOUS! Beans, bacon, and sugar - you can't go wrong with this recipe. Easy to put together and you can leave it cook. I cut up the bacon into small pieces and cook in a covered sauce pan. Goes really fast and easy to drain and add to the rest."
"This is good"
"I've been making pineapple baked beans for decades and everyone loves them, so I multiple the ingredients. I also add Worcestershire sauce and sweet-hot mustard."
"My sister & I have made this recipe twice now for family reunions. We ALWAYS have baked beans at these but this time they were different and everyone noticed! Everyone loved them, went back for seconds, and asked that they be included at the next family get together. The pineapple really makes a difference, adding a natural sweetness that is not heavy or syrupy. The only difference was that my sister used pre-cooked, pre-packaged bacon to save time. What we liked best was how quick and easy it is to prepare, so important when you have so many other dishes to get ready at the same time."
