Crock-Pot Easy Baked Beans
Crock-Pot Easy Baked Beans is a recipe from reader Janet Campbell. We’ve had her recipe since our beginning at Crock-Pot Ladies and I got the honor of making her recipe myself so we could give some more descriptive instructions and pictures.
I halved her recipe (her recipe feeds 25 people!) as this was just for my family at Memorial Day Weekend and I knew a full pot would take us days to eat. If you were making this for a larger gathering you would definitely want to make the full batch.
I had just found some a great deal at the grocery store on some canned pork and beans so I was excited to be able to use up a few cans, and I still have quite a bit of the kidney beans that I canned in my pressure canner from last fall that I’m finding uses for.
I picked up the couple other ingredients I needed at the store and went to work at home. I cooked the bacon in the oven, which is my favorite way to cook bacon as it’s the least messy place to do so, and got busy putting the rest of the recipe together.
The tangy baked beans with bacon turned out great. We really enjoyed them and it was nice to have a different flavor for a side dish at dinner. I often feel like our side dishes are in a bit of a rut so this was a different experience for us. I can’t wait to make this again at our next potluck coming up this summer. I will have the best beans around!
