My favorite bean casserole!!! I've taken this to many potlucks & picnics, & there's never a bean left. Everyone asks for this recipe. This is from 'The Best of the Best' cookbook. I always double this recipe & use a large crock pot; I cook for the same length of time listed below.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut bacon into small pieces& fry till crisp.
  2. Remove from pan.
  3. Cook onion until soft in bacon grease.
  4. Put all ingredients into 2 1/2 qt casserole.
  5. Bake at 350 F for 1 hour.
  6. If you want them a little drier, don't cover.
  7. I prefer mine saucier, so I cover them.
  8. You may also cook in your crockpot for 4-5 hours, on low.

I have not yet made this, but I plan to make it over the holidays. I have a question: does the bacon grease go in the pot? I plan to double the recipe for a potluck. Has anyone done this? How long does it take to heat if you double it? Kathleen
