Three Meat BBQ Baked Beans

Tess Geer


These are ALWAYS a hit. The slow cooker makes them easy to have ready for a BBQ at home or away. I mix them up the day before and just plug it in day of! I usually make a double or triple batch. They freeze very well so I've got a batch ready for the next BBQ! You can also bake them in a 350 oven, uncovered, for any hour instead of using the slow cooker. Enjoy!

Combine the bacon, beef, sausage and all beans in the crock. Stir in the brown sugar, barbecue sauce, mustard, hot sauce (if using) and onion soup until well blended.
