Maple Bacon Beans

By July 16, 2014

Submitted by Shelley B.


  • 3 cups Great Northern, or Navy Beans
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits, or 4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped up
  • 2 heaping tablespoons PC Maple Bacon BBQ sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/2 tablespoon fancy molasses (or to taste – I like my beans lightly flavored – less is more :-) )


Measure beans out, wash and rinse, and then cover with at least 4 cups of boiling water while you assemble the rest of the ingredients… the beans should swell to at least 4 cups by the time you do this.

Drain beans, and add everything to inner pot. The broth should cover beans by at least 1 inch… add more broth if necessary.

Taste broth, and add salt and pepper to taste.

Put on Bean cycle. Voila, great beans in under 1 hr, start to finish!

    PC Maple Bacon BBQ sauce – I have never heard of this sauce. Where did you buy it. I had a post from a lady in South Africa asking and I realized that I needed to know also.

    Probably Presidents choice a Canadian company. Since there is already bacon in the recipe I would just add a TBSP of maple syrup. (or some brown sugar should be close enough to be tasty)

    No worries, it just sounds so good I didn’t want you to miss out on a good recipe because of safety concerns! Happy cooking!!!! :)

    I would imagine that for safety reasons, if you are using raw bacon, then you should not taste the uncooked broth. Alternatively, you could add the raw bacon AFTER tasting the broth.

    It says to cook the bacon first.

    Sorry, I didn’t see that :-(.
