I made baked beans for the first time yesterday. Usually, I either serve plain old Pork And Beans from the can, or I buy Baked Beans pre-made in a can.
But we needed to take a covered dish to our 4-H barbecue yesterday and I decided to use my crockpot to make something. I started looking for ideas in my Fix It And Forget It cookbook, but ended up tweaking the recipe to suit me.
Here is my tweaked variation for Crockpot Baked Beans
6 cans (15 oz. size) of Pork And Beans
1 large can of French's Cheddar Fried Onions (the secret ingredient!)
1 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 Tbsp. mustard
1/4 cup ketchup
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. onion powder
Mix all together in a greased 5 quart crock pot. Cook on low for 4-6 hours.
I received several compliments on this yesterday and the entire pot was eaten except one very small serving which was finished off at lunch today.
Trusting in Him,
