Baked Beans

We love Bush's beans that I doctor up. These are much cheaper to make, you just have to plan to soak the beans the night before. We decided that these needed to cook for longer than 7 or 8 hours. They had a great flavor and we will make them again. I would recommend to just cover the beans with water. I added about 1 inch too much and had to thicken the sauce, because we had too much liquid.

Baked Beans

16 oz bag of dried Great Northern Beans
1/3-1/2 cup molasses
¼ – ½ cup brown sugar
½ cup BBQ sauce
1 cup chopped onion
1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
Diced/Cooked Bacon(we used 2 pieced of raw bacon)
Enough water to cover beans(just cover...or you will need to thicken later)

Soak beans overnight and pick out any nasty pieces. Drain off water and place beans in a crockpot and cover with fresh water and 1 ½ tsp salt. Add in remaining ingredients. Cook on low for about 8 hours, or high for 5
