Warm and hearty, these beans are delightful and filling--and they'll feed a crowd!



  1. In a slow cooker, place half of the presoaked beans, followed by half of the chopped onion, repeat with the remaining beans and onions.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the molasses, brown sugar, ketchup, and Sloppy Joe seasoning mix. Add the hot water and stir.
  3. Pour the molasses mixture in the slow cooker, directly over the beans and onions. Cover and place over the fire.
  4. This dish requires lengthy cooking time— several hours (until the beans are tender). Add additional water as necessary during the cooking process.
  5. Serve with crumbled cooked bacon sprinkled over the beans, or layer uncooked bacon in step 1 along with the beans and onions.
