Reviews for Three-Bean Baked Beans
"The family love these baked beans with picnics! I choose to use all brown sugar and no white, and sometimes I do not use the burger, and instead use a 12 oz package of center cut bacon. Really wonderful flavor!!"
"I made these beans yesterday and my family really liked them. I had eight frankfurters in the freezer, so I sliced them up and used them instead of the ground beef. I will definitely make these beans again, next time with the ground beef. Great recipe!"
"I don't even remember how many years ago I found this recipe from Taste of Home. I've been making it for our family as well as others for a long time. This is always a hit and people ask me for the recipe. I either bake it in the oven or put all the ingredients in a crock pot and let it cook all day. I have served it with white rice and shredded cheddar cheese or with tortillas, sour cream, Mexican shredded cheese, topped with diced tomatoes. Either way, this is such an easy and nutritious meal!"
"Family and Friends empties out the entire Pan of these wonderful Beans. I felt that the recipe was right on. I did leave out the white sugar. Next time I'd add a can of Black Beans. Just for color. Perfect one to make the day before * Hardest thing was opening up the cans *JanieTaste of Home FE Volunteer ."
"We like our food a bit more spicy, so I put in a heaping teaspoon of chili powder and it was perfect!"
