    1. Aw, thanks, Karen! We make this baked beans casserole often and everyone truly LOVES it! 🙂

  1. Quick question do you have to use organic ketchup and brown sugar or can it be regular?

    1. Hi Eileen! Yes, indeed! You can certainly use regular for any of the ingredients with our recipes.
      Enjoy and Happy 4th of July!

  2. This dish is delicious but I found there wasn’t much sauce when done baking as the beans soaked it up. Next time I think I’ll double the sauce recipe and that should solve the issue.

    1. Thanks so much Darcelle! Welcome to our blog. It’s so nice to meet you! And yes if you prefer a lot of sauce with these beans, you can add more or even double the ingredients. So happy you enjoyed them.

    1. Hi Anonymous!
      I never made this using dry beans so I don't have the experience to tell you if it will work.
      It will always be fantastic tasting and much easier if you use the canned beans. But, if you do try it with the dry beans, please let is know how this recipe turns out! ( I hope his helps)

  3. I think its better for the kids to eat, I would bring the mozzarella balls and tomatoes pasta salad. Everyone will enjoy it- especially the little ones.
