Reviews for Jen's Baked Beans
"Good flavor - mine turned out too dry for my taste so next time I'll try less time in the oven."
"These beans were the all-star of our Memorial Day party. Everyone loved the bold flavors from the molasses and that the beans weren't too sweet. I did cut up 1 medium red onion and added it with the bacon. Otherwise, everything was perfect!"
