"I modified this recipe to suit my family's taste," notes Marge Glassic from Easton, Pennsylvania. "It's a great side dish for a backyard barbecue with hamburgers and hot dogs. It can be made in advance and kept warm in a slow cooked for hours without losing any flavor."

"My husband thought they were a 5-star, but I wasn't completely sold. They tasted a step above normal brown sugar baked beans to me. I think it needs a few changes to make it a 5 star, but don't get me wrong, this was still a delicious recipe. I think next time I won't cook the onions quite as long. I think if the onions were crunchier, that would give an added texture to the meal. I'd also like to see some other vegetable thrown in to make it a more complete meal, but not sure which one. I did very much enjoy the bacon (who wouldn't??). The sausage we used was the precooked andouille sausage, which gave the recipe a nice little kick (but not too spicy). I also used pure maple syrup. Overall, a good recipe, but I will tweak it a bit. I'd definitely make this again."

"Great flavors! We use crumbled pork sausage instead of the keilbasa. Also, we have simply prepared and served stovetop on a few occassions. A easy recipe to follow and made the perfect amount for 5 adults. Everyone like the addition of bacon!"

"These beans had such a great flavor! I fixed them for a large church group, and everyone raved about them. My husband loved them as well, and when he took the leftovers for lunch the next day, he said they tasted even better the next day. Definitely putting them in my favorite recipes."
