Baked Beans

Okay, so it is hard to get a good picture of beans but let me tell you... these beans are AMAZING! I found the recipe at Pioneer Woman and I have to admit that I was a little hesitant because it uses pork and beans as the base. But, if PW says that it is better than soaking beans all night, then who am I to argue? I altered the recipe a tad (basically just to make it easier by throwing them in the crockpot) and they are the best baked beans ever! Seriously, we LOVED them! I can't wait to make them again!

Baked Beans
Recipe slightly altered from Pioneer Woman

8 slices bacon, chopped
1 medium onion, cut into small dice
1/2 medium green pepper, cut into small dice
3 large cans (28 ounces each) pork and beans
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup distilled or cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon

Fry bacon in large, deep sauté pan skillet until bacon has partially cooked and released about 1/4 cup drippings. Remove bacon from pan and drain on paper towels. Add onions and peppers to drippings in pan and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes.

Mix beans through dijon in crock pot; add bacon, onion, and peppers. Cook on low until heated through.

These do sound good. Looks like PW knows what she's talking about. By the way, I like the idea of using the crockpot.

Isn't it funny how we sometimes think we aren't "cooking" if we start with something already made? lol I grew up with my mom making baked beans from scratch all the time, so the first time I had doctored up canned beans I was shocked that they were so yummy!
