We all find pleasure and fulfillment in different things. That’s what makes the world go round. One thing that brings me great pleasure right now is when I can cook something for my Dad that puts a smile on his face. Believe it or not, this basic baked beans recipe is his favorite thing to eat…followed closely by a big helping of meatless spaghetti. Not in the same meal of course. I made this basic baked beans recipe for a family dinner recently and my Dad was in heaven. They are easy, quick to throw together and oh so good. The addition of the cinnamon adds the best flavor…it’s hard to explain. You will just have to try them and find out!

A really easy way to cook this basic baked beans recipe is to use your trusty Crockpot. Just mix them up right in the stoneware insert, turn them on low, and let them slowly cook for 3 to 4 hours. After about an hour, the smell coming from that Crockpot will be heavenly.
With cook-out and picnic season fast approaching, keep these beans in mind. They make a great side dish and are a definite crowd-pleaser. Another really good summer side dish is my Pasta Salad. One of my family’s favorite meals is burgers, baked beans, pasta salad and chips. If you aren’t a burger fan you can try my Easy Grilled Chicken. Either way, you can’t get much easier, or tastier, than that!
