Smoky Baked Beans

Posted on

Summertime is packed with barbecues and picnics, and I like to have an arsenal of crowd-pleasing recipes to bring.  With Independence Day approaching, I thought I’d share one of my new favorites!  I like to bring something that’s either OK at room temperature (because it’s hard to keep cold dishes cold), or something that can hang out in the crock pot without getting overcooked.  Baked beans go great with any outdoor summer meal and these were a hit at our Mother’s Day picnic. I would definitely make these again, even as a summer meal in itself!

    • Can’t believe you have a board just for baked beans! Oh, but I forgot, you do a special baked bean thing in your town every year so I guess you’ve got to have a lot of good recipes to use in your arsenal!


  2. These beans look perfect for my crunchy, lonely piece to toast :D

  4. How do I make this without a slow cooker? In a regular pot, cooking for half an hour?
