This needs a few things to make it better. Reduce the onion by half, add 4 TBS ketchup, forget the ground mustard and add 2 TBS Dijon or course grain mustard. They were much better with these adjustments.

I needed a simple quick side dish to add to a meal I took to a friend. These beans were perfect. Easy and quick, great flavor.

Sounds like to much syrup.

I prepared this recipe and I did make adjustments to it! I just used 2 cans (1 lb. each) of Bush's brand baked beans: one home-style type & 1 vegetarian-type & I used 2 Tbsp. canola or vegetable oil, 1 medium onion, finely chopped, 1-1/2 tsp. spicy brown prepared mustard, 1 tsp. garlic salt, and 1-1/4 cup diced roast pork. I used just 1/4 cup maple syrup! I BAKED the beans in a 1-3/4-qt. greased casserole dish, uncovered, for 1 hour. Of course, I stirred the mixture well to combine the flavors! My Mom taste-tested this dish & told me that it was very good! I also sampled the beans after I'd baked them! I think that the beans had a HINT of the maple syrup-I'm finding out that sometimes, dishes take some time to mature! I'd probably add maybe 2 Tbsp. ketchup or BBQ sauce the next time I prepare these beans! But all in all, this is a very creative way to dress up ordinary baked beans!

After all the fixing up, this still just tastes like plain baked beans from a can.

I received compliments on this recipe and I needed a really fast recipe so this did the trick. I would probably add less maple syrup next time. I thought it was a little too sweet
