We always choose this family recipe for July Fourth or any picnic because it's a meaty twist on everyday baked beans and it has a nice sweetness. —Wendy Hodorowski, Bellaire, Ohio

"Re all the ads. Also response to Landbd. Go to "bar". Search bar at top of your device. The lines (bars) at the far end , left side, click on those. It will remove all the ads from print. They will still show up. Hit the print button on the left hand side under print options. When you hit print and it displays, there will be no ads on the printed copy. I understand your frustration. That tidbit showed up on an instruction I happened to read. I usually ignore that stuff but no more. Good luck."

"Love this recipe! It is so fast to put together but tastes like more! I used two cans Ranch beans and the sauce. I also followed other reviewers and use just the brown sugar. It was perfect! Simmered in crock pot, which is great on hot days!"
