Basic Baked Beans Recipe
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 these savory beans for a family dinner recently, and my Dad was in heaven. They are easy, quick to throw together, and oh so good. The brown sugar adds just a hint of sweetness, and the addition of the cinnamon takes the taste of these beans to the next level. You will just have to try them and see what you think!

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.
To bake these baked beans in the oven, a cast iron pot or dutch oven works best. You can also use a
9 x 13 baking dish.
Bush’s Baked Beans
I have never used anything but Bush’s baked beans to make this recipe. I’ve tried other brands, but I always go back to Bush’s because the canned beans don’t get mushy, yet they absorb the flavor of the add-ins. If you can’t find the original recipe variety, homestyle or country style are very good as well.
With cook-outs and summer picnics happening, keep these beans in mind. They make a great side dish, they are perfect for potlucks, and they 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!
