If you can’t tell, I love beans! Pinto, black, refried, and now I’ll be sharing my baked beans recipe with y’all too 😋 I made this in my slow cooker and used dried Great Northern Beans. I soak the beans overnight prior to popping them in my slow cooker so they can de-gas and start puffing up. I add bacon to my recipe too! Yum! These beans are great because you can just have them cook all day and your home just smells amazing 😋
If you’d like to make this vegetarian just don’t add the bacon to it 🥓 You can use any small dried white beans for this recipe including navy, northern, cannelini, or baby lima beans. As mentioned above, you MUST soak these beans prior to cooking them up. If you need to quick soak the beans, just put the beans in a pot with water on the stove. Turn on the heat and let it come to a boil, turn it off and let the beans sit for 1 hour. Drain and rinse the beans, then add to your crockpot.
