Savory Slow-cooked Northern Beans


Cook time: 6 Hr  Prep time: 15 Min  Serves: Crock pot full

These slow cooker baked beans are so savory, saucy, and barbecuey – just right to satisfy your family and guests – kids and adults alike.

Not exactly “baked,” as the title would let you know – but they are slow cooked to perfection while you go about your day.

You end up with savory and saucy, barbecue beans with ham chunks that will satisfy your family and guests – kids and adults alike.

I like to combine two different kinds of beans (Great Northern and red beans were my choice here) to add more varied color and interest to the beans – and, no doubt, the flavor is enhanced as well.


Whether you use dried beans or canned, the outcome is the same amazing BBQ baked beans that are not actually baked – so you don’t have to watch over them. They cook themselves, and then you add the necessary ingredients at the right time.

Just what I like – easy and without much thought for a nourishing meal for your family and guests, as these beans are great for your next cookout, picnic, or potluck.

These slow cooker baked beans go great alongside hotdogs, hamburgers, or anything you’re grilling out!

Great served with my Creamy Coleslaw, Hot Dog Chili, and Mexican Pasta Salad for your next cookout!
