Reviews forSlow Cooker Baked Beans
"After preparing the beans, I threw all the other ingredients into a crock pot and finished them that way. They were quite delicious. I love that the molasses flavor comes through."
"I have made this reciepe many times and they are always hit even with my son who claims to hate beans"
"I made these beans for a family party and everyone loved them. the only thing I changed was I added a little more molasses then the recipe called for."
