The BEST Slow Cooker Baked Beans

Slow Cooker Baked Beans are chock-full of bacon and beef, sweetened with molasses and then slowly cooked until thick and sweet.

If you’ve been reading this blog for long at all, you might notice that I very rarely name anything “the best.”

There are many foods that we love and that we make over and over, but for something to be labeled the best, I feel like it needs to be a “wow” food.

You might be thinking that these are just baked beans, how amazing can they be, right? Well, they are pretty darn amazing as it turns out.

Slow Cooker Baked Beans

Our friend, Tony, brought these beans to a barbecue at our house two years ago and they blew me away.

These beans are so tasty, so full of meat, so sweet and hearty, I  might have “accidentally” tucked a container of Tony’s leftovers deep into my fridge and then forgotten to give them to him at the end of the night.

Later, I asked him if he’d please send me the recipe and lucky for all of us, he was happy to share it.

Best Baked Beans Recipe

We have made these beans so many times since then, I couldn’t possibly keep count. I’ve served them with Beer and Garlic Grilled Chicken, Memphis Style Dry Ribs, Garlic and Paprika Rubbed Steaks, and just about any other main dish you can imagine.

These baked beans are fantastic as a side dish, but honestly, I could happily just eat the beans on their own. This recipe really is outstanding and these truly are the BEST baked beans ever! Thanks again, Tony!

To make one of my all-time favorite meals, combine Sweet and Tangy Pulled Pork and Memphis Coleslaw with these beans for BBQ Sundaes!

Best Ever Baked Beans add up to an awesome BBQ Sundae!

Kitchen Tip: I use this slow cooker to make this recipe.
