I got this recipe from an aunt and made a couple of changes to suit our tastes. With ground beef and bacon mixed in, these satisfying beans are a big hit at backyard barbecues and church picnics. I'm always asked to bring my "special" beans. -Julie Currington, Gahanna, Ohio

"We absolutely love this recipe! Store bought baked beans haven't tasted anywhere near as good since. The one thing we don't like though is having ground beef in it. It just changes the texture and dynamic of the beans we don't care for it, so we omit that."

"I make this for every summer backyard party....ALWAYS a huge hit. Everyone tells me they're the best baked beans they've ever had. This one is definitely a keeper. We have a big family so I usually double the recipe and use a whole pound of bacon just because it's easier. Other than that I keep everything exactly the same. Love it."
