Baked Beans are a summer staple! This simple Slow Cooker BBQ Baked Beans Recipe from Climbing Grier Mountain will quickly become a fixture of your summer barbecue menu.
No backyard party, picnic, or holiday is complete without a large serving of baked beans on the table. Beans go with any spread, and when it comes to grilling up burgers or hotdogs– beans are the best sidekick.
Now, there are many ways to prep and make baked beans. And, I think the best way to get our hands on this American classic is to stay away from the oven. After all, it’s a million degrees outside and the last thing you want to do is stand over a hot burner stirring a pot of beans. Am I right?
This version of baked beans isn’t baked at all. In fact, I’m adding to the simplicity by making them in the slow cooker. You’ll simply add all the usual suspects into the crockpot: navy beans, cooked bacon, sautéed onions, mustard, molasses, ketchup, and (most importantly) bacon chipotle barbecue sauce.
Harry & David’s Bacon Chipotle BBQ Sauce is going to give the beans a smoky, tangy kick at the end from the chipotle peppers. Also, let’s be real, everything is better with bacon. Once you have your ingredients in the slow cooker, simply stir and set on low for four hours. You’ll end up with a magical side dish worthy of your next picnic or backyard party.
