"The cider vinegar was too strong for me."
"This is one awesome recipe. Just the right combination of ingredients makes it delicious and simple to make. Every time I take it to a potluck I get at least 3 or 4 requests for the recipe! Love it!"
"this is a very tasty dish I kept the butter beans out and and i broke it down in half or better myself on the bacon and the cans of beans but most of the spices stayed the same. take a chance on this one everyone that had it is asking me for the recipe."
"I divided by six to make a smaller recipe. It turned out very good and I got request for the recipe. I used Northern instead of Butter beans. I will definitely serve again."
"I made these for a small family get together, using the reduced serving recipe as provided by a reviewer. They were a hit and reheated nicely. Very good flavor and will make again. Nice change to typical burger versions."
