4 (14.5 oz.) cans green beans, rinsed and drained

8 slices thickly-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled, 2 tablespoons drippings reserved

1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup ketchup

1/3 cup brown sugar, packed

1/3 cup BBQ sauce

1/4 cup honey

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste




In a large bowl, combine ketchup, brown sugar, BBQ sauce, honey, Worcestershire sauce and cayenne until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

If using, heat 2 tablespoons reserved bacon drippings in a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat and sauté until softened and translucent. Season with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes, then remove from heat.

Place green beans and onions (including remaining bacon grease) in a lightly greased slow cooker, then pour BBQ ketchup mixture over them.

Mix everything together until incorporated, then top with crumbled bacon.

Cover slow cooker and cook on high for 2-3 hours, or on low for 4-5 hours. Enjoy!
