    I just got done making some baked beans in the crock pot. This particular recipe called for pineapple chunks and bacon(not crispy). It was good and it got me wondering what I might like to try next time. If you have any killer baked beans recipes or secrets you want to share let's hear them.

    I'd love to see some good baked beans recipes that start with canned pork and beans.

    I just had 4 cans given to me and my family doesn't eat pork and beans. I hate to waste anything and know they can be used to make baked beans.

    You should share that recipe with us, Cupman. You want recipes, but aren't sharing yours.

    I make baked beans with pork and beans. I always take out the little chunk of fat they call pork in them. I normally drain a bit of the juice from them. For 2 small cans I would cut up about 3-4 slices of bacon and fry. Add cans of beans after the bacon just becomes crispy. Then add about a cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of ketchup and about a tsp of spicy mustard. I bake them for about an hour at 350 or put them on the grill.

    could always turn them into chilli. I do that with left over baked beans.

    My recipe was based off of memory and sort of thrown together without any measuring cups but I will give it my best guess:

    2 large(24 oz maybe?) cans of beans
    1 regular sized can of black beans
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 small can of pineapple chunks
    half a bottle of Frank's hot buffalo wing sauce
    6 slices of bacon
    half pound ground beef
    one white onion
    ketchup and mustard (maybe half a cup of each)

    I cut the raw bacon into chunks before lightly cooking it(I also diced/sauteed the onions while cooking the bacon). I browned the ground beef. Just add the other stuff in as mentioned and stir it up and put the crock pot on "low" or "keep warm" and wait until it's ready. This was sort of a sloppy thrown-together recipe. I stole the bacon and pineapple idea from my friend's dad who makes great beans. Mine were good but he's still king in that area.

    You can also cook it on "high" and switch it to keep warm once it's ready. I usually just do low because I normally will start the crock pot a couple hours before I plan on serving dinner.

    one can of pork n beans, remove bacon fat, drain tomato juice out of it.
    1/3 c of ketchup
    one half teasp of dried mustard
    one teasp of worchestershire sauce
    chopped or minced onions
    bacon

    Bake in oven or grill at 350 about half an hour.

    That is my usual baked beans. Some members of my family uses BBQ in place of ketchup.

    Best recipe for Baked Beans:

    You will need a big cast iron skillet, about 12 inches in diameter, a stove top, and an oven.

    preheat oven to 375 degrees F

    • Use your favorite cans (3 12oz) of unflavored backed beans ( just the regular kind, no pork or grillin beans or any of that stuff)
    • Get a big kielbasa, slice it on the diagonal, and brown it int he bottom of the skillet with a half of a large vidalia onion (diced)
    • after the kielbasa browns, add a little bit of chicken stock to deglaze the pan ( I'd say about a 1/4 cup no more) and then pour in your baked beans and stir
    • next, open a can of pineapple rings, arrange on top of the beans, about 6-7 fit.
    • place in oven and allow to bake, uncovered for about 20-30 minutes or until bubbly.

    remember that skillet is hot as ****, use protection!!

    Here is our recipe from a friend in northern Wisconsin. I am trying to remember this off the top of my head so it may be a little off on quantities.


    Bummy's Cowboy Beans

    1 pound of hamburger, browned and drained
    2 cans of Bushes Baked Beans
    4 cans of beans - I use red kidney beans, white kidney beans, black beans and butter beans. Use wha tyou like and have on hand.
    1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce - Famous Dave's "Rich and Sassy" is highly recommended, "Sweet and Zesty" is not as spicy
    Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

    Mix together and simmer for 1/2 hour. Add more BBQ sauce if it seems too blah. I think we end up using the entire 12 ounce bottle.

    Bummy didn't drain the beans, so his pot of beans was alot saucier than mine - I drain the 4 cans of plain beans, but not the Bushes Baked Beans.

    Perfect timing!

    I was going to make some baked beans this weekend. I have dry navy beans that I wanted to use. Does anybody have any recipes for dry beans? I've tried Betty Crocker's version before, but it wasn't that good, so I'm looking for a new recipe.

    Any suggestions?
