It’s that time of year again, time to get out your baked bean recipes. A summer barbecue just isn’t the same without baked beans. It’s like having a summer cook out without potato salad, it’s not happening. In fact there should be a law against it! This recipe is made in your crock pot, so you don’t have to heat up your kitchen. Crock Pot Baked Beans are super delicious.

Summertime Must Have

At my house, every summertime cook-out has to have baked beans, some type of potato salad and pasta salad. Not necessarily in that order, but all three are always present and accounted for. What are three cook-out must haves at your house? Another plus, you can serve these yummy beans straight from the crock pot!

The “Real Deal”

Growing up, I was never a huge baked bean lover. Probably because Aggie never made beans, and I’m positive she never ever made “the real deal” baked beans. Her idea of baked beans came out of a can, with pork. The only time she ever used pork n’ beans was when she made bean hash. I was well into my twenties before I ever had “the real deal” baked beans. One bite and I was hooked! I was so happy.
