Slow Cooker Saturday: (Not Really) Baked Beans

We had family and friends over after Anna’s dance recital tonight for burgers. I needed a side dish and I love baked beans with burgers. But I was at the recital and I didn’t feel like using the oven since it’s so hot. 

Sooooo…using the crockpot seemed to be the best way to get it done. Plus, I got a new fancy crockpot that I’ve been itching to use!

Isn’t she beautiful? 

Anywho….I looked on Pinterest to find an easy recipe but couldn’t find one that I liked completely, so I used a combination of recipes.   Crockpot Baked Beans


  • 6 cans Bush’s Baked Beans
  • 1 large red onion chopped
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce 
  • 1 cup molasses 
  • 4 tbsp mustard 


    Pour into the crockpot and stir it up. Cook it on low 6-8 hours. 

    Warning: This makes a lot. Probably enough for 16 big servings. 

    Easy enough, right?!? 

    Garen’s review: “The beans were good, babe.” And “Yes, really” after I asked him if he was serious. 

    My Review:  They were pretty tasty. And they make your kitchen smell awesome. The best part though:  they are super easy!
