Slow Cooker Baked Beans Recipe

Print Friendly


I never loved beans growing up.  My mom had a recipe called Calico Beans, and my whole family seemed to love it but me!  I remember one time when we were eating them for dinner and I was told I needed to take some bites of my beans.  I chewed them and “threw them up” on my mom’s new rug.  Really, I was just being dramatic and spit them out in hopes that I wouldn’t have to eat any more of them.  I may not have had to eat anymore beans, but I had to clean chewed up beans from all over the floor.  Lesson learned.

I have since grown up a little bit and can usually stand to eat beans here and there.  We have been barbecuing a lot this summer and I was in need of a new side dish.  Baked beans are the first side dish that came to mind!  Wanting to make my life even easier, I decided I would try them in my slow cooker and they were amazing!  Even a bean hater like myself devoured every last bite of them!

Slow Cooker Baked Beans Recipe:

3 (28 ounce) cans pork and beans
1 small onion, diced
1 cup barbecue sauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled

Mix all ingredients, except bacon, in slow cooker.  Stir until combined, cover and cook on low for 3-5 hours.  Cook bacon and crumble on top of beans before serving.

    This looks like a great recipe. I just thought you might want to know that your email link is currently not working. I have not been receiving emails when you update. I tried to go in and sign up again but it wouldn’t let me.

    Instead of three cans of pork and beans, I use one can of pork and beans, one can of kidney beans, one can of butter beans and one can of green beans (drained).

    I made this over the weekend turned out great the only thing different i did was put the bacon in at the start to give it a little bit more of a bacon taste.
