Dinners with Donna: Crockpot Baked Bean Side Dish

Dinners with Donna: Crockpot Baked Beans Side Dish

 

It's been quite a while since I've shared a recipe! A week ago we were invited to a potluck lunch. The host was planning to make pulled pork sandwiches. What would be a good compliment, I thought to myself?

Many had signed up for salads and desserts. I thought a while and decided baked beans would be good, but how would I "jazz" them up? Then I remembered, a friend had a good recipe, so of course, I asked if I could have it!

I purchased the ingredients on Friday and started the beans in the crockpot yesterday afternoon for today's potluck.

The dish was huge hit! (And it was easy to make.) The pot was empty before lunch was over! Hurray!

The original recipe calls for lima beans, and we are not huge fans, so I made some modifications. (The recipe below is my modified version.) As I said, no one complained and we went home with an empty dish! (BTW, Rich fried up the bacon. Thanks honey!)

Am I making you hungry yet???

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

3~16.5 oz. cans of Bush Baked Beans (pick your favorite brand0
1~28 oz. can of dark red kidney beans
1 cup catsup
1 cup brown sugar
1 large onion, chopped
1 1/2 lbs. cooked bacon, crumbled 

 

Instructions:

1. Fry 1 1/2 lbs. of bacon.
2. Chop raw onion.
3. Add baked beans, drained kidney beans, catsup, and brown sugar to crockpot on low heat, stir.
4. Add chopped onion and crumbled bacon, stir.
5. Cook on low in crockpot for 6-10 hours. (We cooked for 6 hours on Saturday evening. Then let it cool for 1 1/2 hours before refrigerated. Cooked another 3 hours on Sunday morning.)

Servings:

Not sure how many servings. There were probably 20 people at the potluck and the pot was empty before I finished eating my lunch. Next time I'll have to pay more attention!
