Every year, we take a trip to visit my family over Father’s Day weekend. I made these easy baked beans to go along with a slow-roasted brisket, and they were a hit! They are the easiest side dish you could ever make… literally toss in the slow cooker, give it a stir and serve warm!

Complete this meal with oven roasted pulled pork, deviled eggs, green beans, mashed potatoes and other side dishes!

Adding a little of this and that is a great way to dress up canned beans.

Tools Needed to Make this Recipe:

My Crock-Pot is my spirit animal! I practically travel with it. I have this Crock-Pot Express model, and it is the best kitchen appliance in all the land.

They didn’t even have to pay me to say that! 😉 One of my favorite features is that you can brown meat, then switch over to the pressure cook or slow cook function without dirty-ing an extra pot. I’m all for saving dishes!

But if you have a regular slow cooker, that will do just fine, too. You could even make this in a pot on the stove, just keep on simmer and stir regularly.

Another item I highly recommend is a slow cooker liner. I’m not sure you can use these with the Crock-Pot Express model but you can with other slow cookers and Crock-Pots.

These PanSavers are great and on Amazon for pretty cheap. These are multi-purpose cooking bags and can go in the oven and slow-cookers. Anyway, these liners make it so easy to clean-up, especially if you are hosting a get together, you want this part to be extra easy!

  • It’s completely hands-free. You just add all of the ingredients in the Crock-Pot, stir and warm.
  • It’s inexpensive. If you were to purchase everything, including the seasonings and slow cooker liners, the total cost would be about $10.
  • It’s stretchable. You can easily add more beans to this recipe if you are running low, or add ground beef to stretch even more.
  • It’s a great way to dress up canned beans. Making baked beans from scratch isn’t in the cards for me. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

How to Make Easy Baked Beans:

I rarely buy brand name items, especially when it comes to canned veggies, but I highly recommend grabbing Bush’s Baked Beans for this recipe. It’s a tried and true brand, and I know it’s gonna be good regardless of what I add to them.
