Slow Cooker Savory Baked Beans–this easy bean recipe is a twist on the normal sweet version of baked beans, these baked beans are savory and sure to be a hit at your next picnic!
Baked beans are a popular picnic and potluck dish and making a savory baked beans instead of traditional sweet baked beans is a unique twist. And the bonus is that they are made in the slow cooker and couldn’t be easier! I may be the weird one one but I don’t really like ultra sweetened meat or beans. I for sure like sweet in my desserts but not really in my dinner.
And since today is International Picnic Day here are some other great picnic recipes from other food blogger friends:
