I really just wanted to offer you a gap to start out singing ‘Beans, beans the magical fruit’ if you felt moved to try to to so because I wasn’t getting to make that the headline of this post albeit it’s true!

But really, these slow cooker baked beans with bacon are very easy then delicious that they themselves are deserve alittle fireworks show.

In the winter, there’s nothing better than baking a pot of sweet and saucy beans within the oven to warm the house. Their smell is intoxicating because of the bacon and syrup. But within the summer, the last item i would like to try to to is heat up the oven so I’ve adapted my favorite baked bean recipe to use the slow cooker instead. And I’m so glad I did because these are now my go-to set-it-and-forget-it picnic and potluck offering. 

Cooking the bacon and onions before adding them to the slow cooker could seem fussy but trust me, you get a way better flavor because the onions mellow when cooked within the reserved bacon fat and you get a thicker sauce. Cooking the bacon first also means you won’t have any pale rubbery blobs of bacon in your beans such as you do once you open a can of pork of beans from the shop. Yeah, just no.
