I would recommend adding way more wieners and bacon than the recipe says. There was barely enough to make the second 8x8 dish. However, it was very tasty, my brothers who I made this for loved it. I used Bushes brown sugar hickory beans, and only added 1/4 cup brown sugar because there's already an insane amount of sugar in this. My diabetic husband said he didn't want to go anywhere near this lol.

I used Baked Beans with Brown Sugar (what I had on hand) and it turned out too sweet. I added some yellow mustard and it balanced out fine. Wanted a little more flavor and moistness to the cornbread, so I used a Jiffy Cornbread recipe that had Creamed Corn in it. Worked well. The family liked it and we'll have it again sometime..

Revamped to leave out the wheat/corn. Omitted the sugar (enough sugar in the beans & ketchup.) So it became beans and wieners in a crockpot with onion powder & cooked uncured turkey bacon. Pretty tasty!

Loved this recipe! I made it exactly as written and served it with some fresh pineapple on the side.

Made a few changes. Beef sausage instead of hotdogs (had a coupon), grilled the onions in the bacon fat, used Bush's Baked Beans (another coupon deal), added some garlic salt and pepper to spice up, and used GF cornbread mix.

This was a fun recipe. Thanks. I twisted it up a bit. I used Bush's canned beans and added a can of black beans and a small can of rotel original. We are empty nesters and usually eat a lot healthier. But my husband had this craving for beans and franks and voila! Thanks again.

Wasn't sure how this would go over at my party. It was delicious and a big hit. What great comfort food. I left out the mozzarella cheese cause I didn't see the point. It was still excellent. Thanks for this.

We thought this casserole was OK, but prefer the Sloppy Joe Under a Bun (also a Taste of Home recipe) in terms of casseroles that have bread on the top. I think maybe with the beans and cornbread both it is just a little too sweet for our taste.

this was very easy to make and to have one in the freezer was nice

I didn't really care for this recipe much. It could be that the canned beans that I had already were sweet with brown sugar. There are many other recipes that I prefer to make.
