With a few changes, this is my new baked beans recipe! In order to make it vegetarian, I omitted the bacon entirely and replaces the Worcestershire sauce with 2 tsp vinegar, 1 tsp liquid smoke, 1/2 teaspoon apricot preserves and however much garlic powder came out when I vigorously shook the container. I was cooking for a potluck, but didn't have 4 cups of beans, so I made 1.5X the recipe. That was a LOT of beans. The original recipe is much more than 6 side-dish sized servings! To save time, I cooked the beans in the crockpot on high for a couple of hours instead of soaking them. That was the plan anyway. I forgot about them and overcooked them so they were mushy. Had to stir in the sauce because there was no way it was going to penetrate the slop of the mushed beans. I was sure I'd ruined it, but thought I'd give it a shot anyway. Turns out, the baking time dried out the beans enough to return some of that texture. Got so many compliments on this. YUM. Even the baby couldn't get enough!
