"I make these with browned hamburger also. I use a bit of vinegar and less brown sugar. Mine calls for catsup also. Absolutely love the taste as it almost makes a meal in itself. They're always a hit at family potlucks."

"Love the ease of this recipe and how I can swap out different kinds of beans if I want. I also add about 1/2 pound of browned ground beef to the mix. One of my most requested dishes at a potluck!"

"Did substitute the beans because of what I had on hand! Reduced the amount of brown sugar to 1/2 cup and since we are not "sweet" folks will reduce further next time ... increased the amount of horseradish and used spicy mustard. Did add a can of pork n beans -- all in all will make again with a few more modifications. Used 2-1/2 strips of bacon (all I had) along with 8 ounces of cubed ham which was cut into smaller pieces and half a pound of hamburger. They were will received at a Church pot-luck!"

"I took this for a July 4th picnic and everyone raved, including my 93 year old father who hates horseradish!!! Made them again last week and he praised them again!!!"
