This pretty weather is making us hungry for picnic food! Boston Baked Beans has been a yearly tradition for us for a really long time now. Over the years our recipe has changed and developed to become as healthy and tasty as we can make it. Honestly it’s way good!
Best Boston Baked Beans
- 4 cups cooked beans drained (we use pinto)
- 1 onion diced
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 2 bell peppers chopped
- ½ pound bacon (optional)
- 1 ½ cups ketchup
- 2-3 Tbs. yellow mustard
- 1 Tbs. minced onion
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- ¼ tsp. garlic powder
- 1 Tbs. molasses
- salt, pepper and cayenne to taste
Cook bacon and set aside. Saute’ onions, garlic and peppers in the bacon grease until caramelized. If you are not using bacon use water instead of bacon grease. Crumple bacon, if using, and put all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook on high for at least 4 hours. If the mixture is too thick just add a little water.
