We are huge baked bean lovers in my family.
Whenever we grill out in the summer, we almost always have beans as a side.
Now, I have a pretty fantastic (if I do say so myself) recipe for Southern Baked Beans.
You can find that recipe HERE.
It is my favorite bean recipe to use. But I got quite a few emails from folks who like that recipe but wanted something that was a bit easier to make and maybe didn't involve so many ingredients. If you have the time, and don't mind turning on your oven, I really suggest that recipe. The flavor is amazing and the sauce cooks down slowly in the oven, really giving those beans outstanding taste. But I also understand keeping things easy and having a recipe that doesn't involve turning on the oven in the summer.
So, this recipe was created. Just a few ingredients, and it is made in the crock pot!
That makes these beans perfect to take along to a BBQ but also doesn't heat up your house.
