July 4th: Baked Beans

This week is going to be CRAZY for me!  Not only is it month-end, but it's also a holiday on Friday!  In honor of July 4th, I'll be sharing some awesome recipes to make on July 4th to help you enjoy your holiday!  First up, this delicious and amazingly easy baked bean recipe made in the crock-pot!  Bonus--it's vegetarian!

1-15 oz can great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
1-32 oz can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 medium onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup molasses or sorghum
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  1. Mix beans and onions together until combined and place in a crock-pot.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients until well combined.

The hubby was obsessed with this recipe, and he asked me to make it once a week "until he tires of it"!  This will be an easy throw-it-together-and-forget-about-it on that holiday that you want to spend in front of the grill, around the pool or setting off fireworks!
