“I have made this casserole several times, and it’s always a hit,” reports Roxanne VanGelder of Rochester, New Hampshire. The kid-pleasing combo has a sweet flavor from the baked beans and the corn bread topping. “The recipe saves on pans to wash if all were cooked separately,” Roxanne adds.

MY REVIEW

"I used Baked Beans with Brown Sugar (what I had on hand) and it turned out too sweet. I added some yellow mustard and it balanced out fine. Wanted a little more flavor and moistness to the cornbread, so I used a Jiffy Cornbread recipe that had Creamed Corn in it. Worked well. The family liked it and we'll have it again sometime.."

"Revamped to leave out the wheat/corn. Omitted the sugar (enough sugar in the beans & ketchup.) So it became beans and wieners in a crockpot with onion powder & cooked uncured turkey bacon. Pretty tasty!"

"Made a few changes. Beef sausage instead of hotdogs (had a coupon), grilled the onions in the bacon fat, used Bush's Baked Beans (another coupon deal), added some garlic salt and pepper to spice up, and used GF cornbread mix."

"This was a fun recipe. Thanks. I twisted it up a bit. I used Bush's canned beans and added a can of black beans and a small can of rotel original. We are empty nesters and usually eat a lot healthier. But my husband had this craving for beans and franks and voila! Thanks again."
