  • 8 oz bacon (sliced)
  • 3/4 cup diced yellow onion
  • 60 oz navy beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 2/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 2 TBS mustard (yellow or dijon)


  • Cook up your bacon pieces in a large skillet over medium heat until it is crispy. Place the bacon on paper towels, and blot to absorb the extra grease. Set it aside for a few minutes to cool.
  • Add the diced onion to the pan with the bacon grease and cook it up over medium heat for a few minutes until it starts to soften.
  • Add the beans, bacon, onion, barbecue sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, molasses, and mustard to the slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours. Or on high for 2 to 3 hours. (If your slow cooker runs hot, make sure to stir these a couple times near the end of the cooking time, the last couple hours or so) **
  • Serve hot.


**Add a couple tablespoons of water to the slow cooker if your beans starts to dry out.
