(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and this Friday it's Memoral Day in the U.S. which makes me think Slow Cooker Baked Beans might be a good idea. While many of you are enjoying a holiday weekend, I'm updating and sharing this post from Kenya, where I'm heading out today to see hippos and go on a day-trip Safari. Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone!)
It's the time of year to be cooking things on the grill, and the arrival of grilling season always makes me happy! Of course you need side dishes when you're grilling, and baked beans have to be one of the classic side dishes to accompany grilled foods. There are plenty of good recipes for baked beans made in the oven, but when it's hot outside, one of these Amazing From Scratch Recipes for Slow Cooker Baked Beans will let you make fantastic baked beans in the CrockPot without heating up the house.
Each blogger's version of baked beans is just a little different; there are beans with bacon and meatless beans, spicy beans and sweet beans, recipes with one kind of beans and those with several types, and just about every other variation you can imagine. Read my description of each recipe, then click the recipe title below any photo to see the entire recipe on the blog.
