This is a mouthwatering mix of ground beef, baked beans and barbecue sauce is a mainstay for us. Often, I'll brown the meat with the barbecue sauce and freeze it in a resealable bag. Later, I thaw it, add the beans, cook and serve.—Rose Purrington, Windom, Minnesota

"The BBQ sauce overpowered the dish. We didn't enjoy it. I will not make it again."

"There should be a circle for maybe. I omitted the cheese, used onion powder, ketchup & added 1 1/2 tablespoons of molasses. Hubby said it was similar to my Beefy Baked beans, which he had too recently. The molasses gave it good flavor."

"My family and I were not at all impressed with this dish -- I followed the recipe exactly so no modifications can account for our dissatisfaction."

"This recipe is very good, I've made it a few times now. I use ketchup in place of the BBQ sauce and I let it simmer on low for about an hour on the stove. I also do not mix the cheese directly into the meal, I let each individual sprinkle with their own desired amount."
