Reviews for Hearty Maple Beans
"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."
