Reviews for Simple Maple Baked Beans
"I prepared this recipe and I did make adjustments to it! I just used 2 cans (1 lb. each) of Bush's brand baked beans: one home-style type & 1 vegetarian-type & I used 2 Tbsp. canola or vegetable oil, 1 medium onion, finely chopped, 1-1/2 tsp. spicy brown prepared mustard, 1 tsp. garlic salt, and 1-1/4 cup diced roast pork. I used just 1/4 cup maple syrup! I BAKED the beans in a 1-3/4-qt. greased casserole dish, uncovered, for 1 hour. Of course, I stirred the mixture well to combine the flavors! My Mom taste-tested this dish & told me that it was very good! I also sampled the beans after I'd baked them! I think that the beans had a HINT of the maple syrup-I'm finding out that sometimes, dishes take some time to mature! I'd probably add maybe 2 Tbsp. ketchup or BBQ sauce the next time I prepare these beans! But all in all, this is a very creative way to dress up ordinary baked beans! Thank you for sharing this recipe with Quick Cooking! delowenstein"
"After all the fixing up, this still just tastes like plain baked beans from a can."
"I received compliments on this recipe and I needed a really fast recipe so this did the trick. I would probably add less maple syrup next time. I thought it was a little too sweet"
