Baked Bean Casserole | Betty Crocker Casseroles | Slow Cooker

I'd like to share my favorite New England Baked Bean Casserole recipe with you. It was shared by a co-worker, and I use it all year long - it's great for summer picnics, barbecues, or you could make and take to brunch or holiday gatherings!

If you'd like, it tastes delicious with a bit of New England Maple Syrup added too!

One of the best things I like about living in New England is Fall. I enjoy everything about it - the changing colors of the foliage; the sound of crisp leaves crunching under my feet as I take an evening walk; the smell of wood stoves burning; and trips to the cider mills.

Also right up there are comfort foods - which to me means casseroles and slow cookers!

Awhile back I had the opportunity to help vote for the Betty Crocker Casseroles dish magazine.  There were so many great recipes in there from all over the country.  This baked bean recipe, however, is a family favorite.  What's more New England than franks and beans on St. Patrick's Day?

This baked bean recipe is a family favorite !  When I was a young girl, my mom would dice up hot dogs and cook in the baked beans and that would be our New England Supper, a hot dog casserole served with Boston Brown Bread !

I like to bring these baked beans in a crockpot to keep warm at parties.  They're always a hit, and go fast !  Easy to transport, too.

This recipe can also be cooked in a Crockpot or Slow Cooker on Low and served right from the pot.  It's very portable for buffets or parties!
