Baked Beans

These baked beans are a favorite side dish throughout my husband’s family and the recipe has been passed down to me.  They are present at every barbecue we host or any that we attend with my husband’s family.  My parents are now addicted to them and serve them all the time.

These take minutes to throw together and bake for a couple of hours.  If you don’t want to heat up the house during the summer, I have had great success cooking these in a crock pot for 3-5 hours on low.  They do not get as thick this way but still taste amazing.

Make sure to bring these to your next get together if you are looking for a great, simple side dish that is sure to impress.

    I made these beans today and they were very good, although quite sweet. I used Bush’s Original beans and baked them at 300 degrees for about 2 1/2 hours which was the perfect consistency for me. I also added a chopped onion. Next time I might omit the bacon and toss in some sliced hot dogs instead. I’ve always liked hot dogs in my baked beans but then who can pass on bacon!
