Baked Beans

Kris Krajacic


This is my sister in law's recipe; she's a wonderful cook & most the time doesn't need to measure anything. When I asked her for this recipe, she did her best to measure everything out for me & I must say, she did an excellent job because everyone loves "my" baked beans! The main thing to do is just make sure they don't burn - add water as needed. I found it easier to use the roaster oven but she's always used the conventional oven method. Your choice - I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

How to Make Baked Beans


  1. Soak beans overnight or for about 8 hours, then boil for 20 min.
  2. Drain & add all other ingredients - put in roaster oven (or casserole dish with lid). Add enough water to submerge all ingredients. You may need to add water during cooking time as it may evaporate - you don't want the beans to burn. You can adjust how much water you use as to your liking - if you like a thicker baked bean dish, then use only enough to keep everything covered.
  3. Bake in oven or roaster oven at 250 degrees until beans are soft; 8 - 10 hours.
  4. Add a couple squirts of ketchup when almost done. I added this when I had roughly 1/2 hour to go.
