Very tasty for game day to feed a crowd.

Great recipe! We loved it


Just like grandma used to make. My mom never made them from scratch but I am returning our family to scratch cooking like my grandma made and this is an excellent recipe! thanks so much.

Thanks, Ava. I’m so glad you enjoyed it.

hi, can you use a crock pot and slow cook? I want to bring to a party and plug in.

Hi Laura,
I have never made these baked beans from scratch in the slow cooker/crockpot though it can be done. If you want to cook them in the slow cooker, soak the beans overnight and drain, add all the ingredients into the slow cooker and stir to combine. Then cover, and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours, stirring occasionally and checking for tenderness. I have added these notes to the recipe. Thanks for taking the time to ask. I hope you enjoy them.


Made these in a Dutch icen for a cookout. They turned out great. Thanks for the recipe


yummy, we love baked beans.


Pretty much our family recipe too!

I love homemade beans.


They are heavenly 🙂


Hi wondering how many people does your traditional bean recipe serve? I’m having a group of 12 for dinner. We will also be serving brisket, coleslaw and cornbread. The party is tomorrow and I’m not sure if I should increase the the ingredients in the recipe or not! Help!!

Hi Alison,
I believe along with your brisket and sides that this recipe should be able to easily feed 12 people. As a rule, we generally figure between 1/2 cup to 1 cup per person. According to the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom, a one-pound bag of dried beans provides 10 servings of 1/2 cup of cooked beans.
Hope this helps and that your brisket dinner is a success. It sure sounds delicious.


Saturday nigh crock of beans and hot dogs!

Did your Mom put the hot dogs in the crock to heat, too?

I want to start a blog but would like to own the domain. Any ideas how to go about this?


This sounds yummy.

Thank you!


You have got interesting posts here. I love Boston Baked Beans! I don’t have a crock like that though — can I make them in another dish instead?

No worries! If you do not have a crock, you can use a dutch oven or covered casserole dish.
