Slow Cooker Beans

  • 6 - 19 oz. cans beans, drained (I use a couple of different beans because I like the variations)
  • ½ pound bacon, cut into sixths (you can use less, or omit it completely)
  • 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cups BBQ sauce (I like a honey flavoured one for this, but you can use your own favourite)
  • ½ cup tightly packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup ketchup (optional)

Place everything into a slow cooker and make sure it’s all well combined. Set the cooker on low and leave to simmer for 9 hours, stirring often. For best flavours, make this the day before and then slowly reheat it when you’re ready to serve it. It makes enough that there’s always plenty for a quick wiener and bean lunch the day after that.
