    I made this for my church luncheon after service and it was so delicious! I made it as written with a few changes: -I halved the recipe, yet there was still enough food for everyone to eat; -I used thick cut bacon strips for added texture; -I used half ketchup, half Diana Sauce when measuring ingredients; -I added a pinch of cayenne pepper to give it zing without the heat. The sweetness of the pineapple added a perfect balance to offset the beans, and it was enjoyed by everyone. Very good recipe, I'll definitely make it again!

    Was delicious. Next time I will cut the sugar in half. I cut recipe in half and I think just that portion would serve 25 people. Makes a lot of beans.

    Anxious to try this. Reminds me of a long-lost recipe my Mother used make. Her recipe had chunks of hot dogs and maybe a little horseradish in it.

    Fantastic! I used 1/2 cup chili sauce because I prefer it over ketchup! Thanks for posting!

    This is becoming a favorite at every family get-together! I put all the ingredients in a slow cooker and let it cook for about 6 hours, yum!!

    DELICIOUS! Beans, bacon, and sugar - you can't go wrong with this recipe. Easy to put together and you can leave it cook. I cut up the bacon into small pieces and cook in a covered sauce pan. Goes really fast and easy to drain and add to the rest.
