I NEVER CARED MUCH FOR BAKED BEANS WHEN I WAS YOUNGER…
But, I LOVE them now! I love them as a summery BBQ side, I love to pile them on hot dogs and I even secretly eat them in toasted cheese sandwiches. (What, you haven’t tried that?) I’ve been working on perfecting my recipe this summer. I finally have them just the way I like them – saucy, a little smoky, a little sweet and loaded with bacon! I used to bake them in the oven, but I think they’re easier and even tastier when they’re slow simmered in the slow-cooker. (Oven directions included as well.)
Smoky & Sweet Slow-Cooker Baked Beans:
Love this great side dish recipe! I am with you, I didn’t like baked beans much when I was a kid but now it is a whole different story. These look delicious and I love that you can make them early in the day and let them cook in the crock pot. Pinning!
Thanks Kristin! Hope you and the family have had a wonderful summer! ( :
Wow!!! These beans sound perfect!!!! Will try them for our next picnic!!
Thanks Susan!! I hope you love them!! Have a great day!!
Hi! Did you use soaked dry beans? Or can beans?
How much time would you recommend for dry beans ? (Previously soaked overnight)
Hi Vanessa – For this recipe I have always used canned beans. But since this is cooking low and slow in the slow-cooker – I think your soaked beans may cook in about the same time. Maybe just build an extra hour into your timeframe in case you need to add some extra time for them to get nice and tender. Let us know how you make out!
