We've updated this old-fashioned American favorite, taking advantage of the gentle, uniform heat of a slow cooker. Instead of the traditional salt pork, this recipe uses lean Canadian-style bacon.

Portion size is deceptive

Recently I got more interested in using dried beans, which over all do take more time to prepare, but there are also advantages.

The part of this recipe that bothers me a lot is the deceptive presentation of amount of calories. 8 servings of 0.75 cup equals to 4 servings of 1.5 cups, which seems more reasonable to me. Which makes a serving over 500 calories.

I made this recipe with 1 cup of dried beans and I end up with 4 reasonable servings. Didn't sit down to calculate out calories, but I don't see a reason to worry.

Eating Well dropped here the ball with deceptive serving size presentation, please revise this recipe.
