Before Memorial Day gets here and you are scrambling to figure out what to cook for your get togethers, I thought I would share with you some of my go-to, quick barbecue recipes. Most of us don’t have all day to spend prepping for weekend parties, and so these recipes are really fast with a few shortcuts (love the semi-homemade tricks every now and then). Not to mention, everything you need for your barbecues are on sale this week (bbq sauce, mustard, ketchup, relish, hamburgers, hot dogs, buns, pork and beans, bacon, chicken, watermelon and MUCH more!).

Now, back to these beans. Oh, how I love a good pot of baked beans! And I even like them better when they are easy to throw together. Don’t get me wrong, if you have more time on your hands, this recipe for Famous Dave Baked Beans is the best. However, on those days you don’t have time to spend all day in the kitchen, these beans are full of great barbecue flavor and smoky, rich goodness. Throw all of the ingredients into a crock pot, set it on low heat, and a few hours later you have the perfect baked beans. Put this recipe on your upcoming menu for sure 😉
- 2 cans 15oz. baked beans
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup bbq sauce
- 2 tsp. yellow mustard
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 5 slices bacon chopped
- 1/2 red bell pepper chopped
- 1/2 green bell pepper chopped
- 1/2 onion chopped
- Dice the onion and peppers into small pieces. In a saute pan, cook the bacon until crispy. Once the bacon is crispy, remove from the pan and drizzle the bacon fat into the bottom of the crock pot. Crumble the bacon. Add the diced onions and pepper to the bacon fat. Pour the rest of the ingredients into the crock pot. Stir until combined. Cover; cook on low heat for 6-8 hours, or high heat 3-4 hours, or until cooked through and hot. Serve warm.
