    I thought this was good, but not good enough to make again. Prepared exaclty as written.

    This was pretty darn good. I made this as a gluten-free side dish for a picnic. As other reviewers stated, I would halve the recipe; it makes a lot of lentils. I also substituted molasses for the maple syrup for a more authentic BBQ sauce. This is a keeper.

    My husband loves this recipe, but with the following changes: I halve it or else we'll be eating it for weeks. I still use the full cup of onion. I don't cook the lentils so long in the boiling step---they end up mushy. Stop simmering them while they're still firm. Also, I've made this with French lentils and regular brown lentils, and we liked both versions. When the lentils are mixed with all the spices and in the pan to be baked, taste them and correct seasonings. I usually serve this with Spicy Chicken Thighs and a salad.

    I think these are yummy and a great way to eat something with BBQ that is a little healthier than regular baked beans. My vegetarian friends LOVE this! And, ditto, it makes a lot!

    I thought this came out a bit dry. It was tasty, but if I were to make it again, I will put it in the crock pot to see how it comes out. I served them with hamburgers and potato salad.
