Heather's BBQ Baked Beans

READY IN: 4hrs 20mins
Recipe by Brooke the Cook in

I've brought this variation of baked beans to many BBQ's, even has made an appearance at Easter dinner - its one of those recipes that people say 'oh would you bring those baked beans again please.' I always make them in the crock-pot, but have included instructions for oven too. Leftovers re-heat very well.

Great baked beans recipe. We loved the use of ground beef, which made it similar to a chili, but with the sweetness of baked beans. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown beef, onion and bacon over medium high heat.
  2. Meanwhile, add all beans to crock-pot.
  3. Add beef mixture to beans and stir.
  4. Combine remaining ingredients with a whisk and stir into bean mixture.
  5. Turn crock-pot to low for at least 4 hours - I have made them farther in advance, they'll get thicker as time goes on.
  6. Oven directions: If you'd like to bake them in the oven, pour bean mixture into large dutch oven and bake at 350 for an hour.
