i have my own recipe for baked bean but when i use a slow cooker i use a spatter guard instead of a lid, this way the juices evaporate and you have thick and delicious beans without all the juices. Read More

Honey garlic sauce is a cooking sauce that can be bought prepared by many co. ie: VH sauces in the Chinese food section or condiment section. lots of recipes here for home made versions. i use VH brand for my BBQ's ribs all the time. This lively sauce has the sweetness of honey and the richness of garlic. It is ideal for grilling, basting, simmering or dipping meatballs, beef, pork or chicken. hope this helps :) Read More

I got this recipe years ago from a friend's mother. She called it "1 pot dinner". I brown the ground beef with the baccon and drain the fat. I combine all the ingredients in a crock pot on low, and cook for 6 ours. I always volunteer to bring the baked beans, and go home with an empty pot. I give this 5 stars Read More

I've made a similar recipe like this for yrs. (30 yrs) and it's called Calico Beans, has pork n beans, butter beans and kidney beans, hamburger & bacon, chopped onions with sauce of ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar and mustard. Always a big hit at pot luck, and a complete meal if you want. Read More

I will definately make again. I put everything in the crockpot in the late morning and set on low. Turned it down to warm about an hour before dinner. I like my ingredients to spend some time together. Everyone liked them. This would work well for summertime BBQ's! Read More

This is a good dish for summer BBQs...We served it with grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and there wasn't a bit left over. Like one of the other reviewers mentioned, I also wasn't sure what honey garlic sauce was but saw while shopping that Kraft has a Honey Garlic BBQ sauce, so I bought that to use. I'm not sure if the Kraft BBQ sauce is the same type of honey garlic sauce that recipe called for but the beans were still absolutely perfect. Read More

Excellent. I did it on the stove (crockpot was dirty!). Cooked for about an hour letting the flavours steep. I used a chipotle baked beans and a maple baked beans. The hint of spice with the sweet so excellent! Read More
