Maple White Bean Bake


Are you tired of the same old baked bean side dish at potlucks and summer BBQs?

This version of baked beans is good enough to enjoy all year round.

I originally posted this recipe on, and it has an average 4.5 stars from reviewers.

Here are what some of the people who tried it had to say:

I really enjoyed this. I used Northern beans as that was what we had on hand. I found that this recipe is the perfect amount of seasoning for our family. We love garlic! This will be a high rotation dish. (Review by Auntie Mags)

These beans are great. I only made had a big can of cannellini beans. I used 1/4c of maple syrup and all the other ingredients. I will make the full recipe to bring to a party soon. Thanks. (Review by tmp68)

Although I only used one type of beans (just great northern), it was very good. I scaled it down to just one very small can of beans to serve two people. Very interesting and diffrent taste to beans, my mother did not really like this, but she hates mixing sweet and savory in any way at all. Served these with BBQ chicken and lo mein (odd combo lol). I plan on making these again for potlucks and such over the summer for a diffrent take on beans! (Review by anme)
