Comfy Baked Beans

  • Author: Ontario Bean Growers
  • Yield: 10 cups 1x


This classic baked bean recipe may take some time to prepare, but it’s oh-so worth it! White beans are slow-cooked with fancy molasses and bacon making for a fragrant “welcome home” after a long day.


  • 3 cups dry white pea beans (750 mL)
  • 1/4 lb. bacon, diced (optional) (125 g)
  • 1 can tomatoes, undrained and chopped (28 oz/798 mL)
  • 2 large onions, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup ketchup (175 mL)
  • 3/4 cup fancy molasses (175 mL)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar (50 mL)
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard (15 mL)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper (1 mL)


Rinse and sort beans. In a large Dutch oven or stockpot, cover beans with 3 times their volume of water (about 9 cups). Bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and stand for 1 hour. Drain, discarding liquid. Return soaked beans to pot along with 3 times their volume of fresh water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered to 30 to 45 minutes or until tender. Drain, reserving 1 cup (250 mL) cooking liquid. Place cooked beans and remaining ingredients into crockpot. Cover and cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours.
