"Made this with 2 cans of beans (all I had), 3 slices bacon, 1/2 cup no sugar added BBQ sauce to use up what I had, 1/2 cup ketchup, 1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar blend, about 1 tablespoon mustard (didn't read correctly), and the molasses. No salt and just a shake of pepper. It worked out great, and tasted wonderful. Next time, though, I'll cook onions & bacon on stove first. Keeper recipe that's easy to make."

"excellent. I use 6 slices of cooked bacon in place of the hotdogs. Saut? onions in the bacon drippings before adding to the bean mixture. Always a big hit!"

"Great if this was called "Beans and Wieners". Just ok as baked beans. Had too much of a ketchup taste. Very easy to make, though."

"These are a little bit sweeter than most baked bean dishes that I make, but they are still pretty good."

"I made this only I used pinto beans, a ham hock (instead of the hotdogs), and I let them simmer in the slow-cooker"
