We’re especially fond of this sweet-and-smoky picnic favorite. And it’s easy to make, too! Only 20 minutes of prep time needed.

  • 6 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 3 cups water

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.

    Cover and bake 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • 4

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Navy beans are actually one variety of kidney bean. These small white beans are so named because they’ve been a standard food of the U.S. Navy since the mid-1800s.
  • tip 2
    Why not serve these savory, slightly sweet beans in hollowed-out round dinner rolls? When the beans are gone, you’ll have a sauce-soaked piece of bread to enjoy!
