How To Prepare This Homemade Five Bean Baked Beans Recipe

This bean bake can easily be made in a slow cooker or crock pot for some hands-off cook time. You can also use a cast iron Dutch oven and place it directly on the grill to cook up this classic side while you cook up the rest of your meal.  

First: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

Second: Spray the bottom of a small casserole dish with non-stick spray.

Third: In a bowl combine all of the ingredients.

Pour into the prepared dish.

Fourth: Bake this five-bean baked beans casserole uncovered for 20 minutes. 

Fifth: Serve hot.

If you have leftovers of this filling dish let them come to room temperature and then store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Leftovers are great for lunch the next day.
