    Aw, beans. I know what song you are singing in your head because I am singing the same one! Beans are a traditional cookout side dish.

    While it is super easy to pop open a can of baked beans, but it is equally easy to make your own.

    Make sure to PIN Slow Cooker Baked Beans!

    Slow Cooker Baked Beans breaks my “10 minute set it and forget it” rule, but not by much. Only because of making delicious bacon and I’ll do just about anything for bacon.

    However, I guess if they are made in a slow cooker, they are really simmered beans instead of baked beans, but you get the drift.

    A medley of 4 different types of beans are slow cooked with bacon, brown sugar and mustard to make a flavorful side dish.

    You can also make slow cooker baked beans with dry beans instead of canned. On this date I didn’t have the time to start with dry beans, however you can modify the recipe.

    Start with 2 cups of each type of dry beans. Put them all in a large bowl, cover with water and set in the fridge for 6-8 hours. Pick up where the recipe starts off for the same results!

    Questions you might have about how to make baked beans:

    Can I freeze baked beans? You sure can! Place in an airtight container and freeze for up to 6 months.

    Can I use just one type of bean? You can use one, four or anything between. I like to use a variety because it looks prettier and each bean as its own unique texture and taste.

    These are my favorite types of beans:

    • Great Northern
    • White Beans
    • Pink Pinto Beans
    • Pinto Beans
    • Kidney Beans
    • Black Beans
    • Navy Beans

    Can I omit bacon? You can omit the bacon, but this adds saltiness to the dish, so I would recommend adding a little salt to balance it.

    Can baked beans be made ahead of time? Sure! Beans are such a sturdy ingredient and can withstand a lot, including being made ahead and reheating. However, as with most recipes, they are best eaten within 24 hours of cooking. 

    How do I reheat baked beans? Like I said above, they are pretty sturdy, so you take your pick of how to reheat them. Saucepan, crock pot, skillet, cast iron, baking dish, oven or even the microwave. It is pretty hard to hurt them! 

    Can I use dry, raw beans instead of canned beans? You sure can! I just usually don’t have the time.

    Start with 2 cups of each type of dry beans. Put them all in a large bowl, cover with water and set in the fridge for 6-8 hours. Pick up where the recipe starts off for the same results!

    Can I make these on the stovetop instead of a crockpot? You sure can! Just place all of your ingredients into a large saucepan or Dutch oven and simmer for 2 hours.
