You can always double or triple the recipe if feeding a crowd. They can be cooked on the stove or in the crockpot. So why are they called "baked" beans? I have no idea. :)
Stick to the name brands - there IS a difference!
recipe courtesy of Teri (and slightly adapted by me)
1 can (15.75 oz) Campbell's pork and beans
1 large can (28 oz) Bush's Original baked beans
1 can (15 oz) Great Northern or white beans, rinsed and drained
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 tsp. dry ground mustard
1 tsp. A-1 steak sauce
1/4 tsp. liquid smoke
1/2 cup diced onion
6 slices of bacon
Cook bacon until crisp, reserving 1 Tbsp. grease, and chop. Cook onions on medium heat in the reserved grease until soft and translucent. In a large pot or slow cooker, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer about 30 minutes. Or cook on high in a slow cooker for about 1 hour or until hot and bubbly (if doubling or tripling the recipe, you will need to increase cooking time by an hour or more).
