Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

As someone else has said, I use two cans of Bush's baked beans the recipe is amazing!!!! Add ham or hotdogs for a complete meal.

This recipe looks delicious but I think I would use bacon instead of ham.

Going to modify this. Use Bush's baked beans, pineapple, the ham and about 1/2 tsp. cloves or cloves to taste. You would not believe how good cloves are in beans! You also leave out the mustard, sugar and onion because Bush's has all that already in the beans! Just makes the recipe easier.

Never used cloves in beans!! Thanks for the suggestion! Will give it a try.

After going over the ingredients again, I do think the combination of them would be very tasty. Ham, pineapple, dry mustard and sugar go exceptionally well together. Onion? Eh? Just might give this a try.

I agree with matandtaters. But the pineapple might be good with one of my recipes! Thanks for the 'tip'.

This picture is not very appetizing. That might be why you have no comments. Maybe no one wants to try this because it really doesn't look like much.
