    My husband loved these beans, I thought they were flavorful. I like my beans softer, and the kidney beans gave this dish a heartier texture. I would love to make these again and add different types of bean or brands or barbecue sauce.

    02/24/2020. My husband and I LOVED this recipe. I also left out the pork and beans and added a can of plain navy beans. Baked at 400 with the Pan covered for 20 minutes. These were saucy, tasty and a wonderful substitute when you don’t have time to make homemade baked beans. SO MUCH BETTER than anything prepared or canned; you control the ingredients. I will make this regularly!

    The other change I'd made to this recipe was using Dijon mustard since I had that on hand! I'd baked the beans since I do not have a grill.

    Really good, easy. I left it uncovered for half the time to Carmel it up. I would make again. Janet. VFE

    I really liked the flavor of these beans. But I will replace the kidney beans next time with pintos. I just like pintos better.

    Loved this recipe. I took the advice of adding 1/2 lb. of bacon and hamburger to it. Yummy!

    Substituted the kidney beans with black beans instead. Everyone loved it!
