Best Ever Baked Beans (Crock Pot)

Total Time
6hrs 20mins
Prep 20 mins
Cook 6 hrs

These are a hit at my house for even those that aren't fans of baked beans. I think it's the bacon that adds the x-tra somethin somethin. Or maybe the french fried onions. This can also be done in the oven and so reduce the baking time to 1 1/2 hrs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry bacon until it's almost done.
  2. Mix all ingredients together using only 3/4 of the can of french fried onions.
  3. Cut up the bacon into bite size pieces.
  4. Add bacon.
  5. Place crock pot on low for 6 hours
  6. 1/2 hours before it's done place remaining onions on top.

Oh dear, it just occurred to me why I had a problem with this dish last night. When I bought the ingredients, I assumed we were starting with dry beans. I did realize before starting that it should have been canned beans, so I cooked the beans in the pressure cooker (took about 1 1/2 hours), then put them in the crockpot with the ingredients. The end product was much too mild, but I realized this morning that I weighed the beans dry. I must have had way too high a ratio beans to other ingredients. I ended up adding more and more of the other ingredients at the end along with salt, but since they didn't have time to soak in, it tasted a little hollow - my fault, not Coffeebaristas. So sorry!

Yum! These are great! I drained the beans partially, and ended up needing to add more liquid later, so next time I won't drain them. Everyone really loved these, and I'll be making them again and again. Thanks for posting!

Bacon makes them what they are, and the crock pot does a nice job on them. Made for Top Favorites of 2009 on Breezermom's referral, and measures up to the nomination!
