Crock Pot Cowboy Beans

Are you looking for a great side dish to feed a crowd? Crock Pot Cowboy Beans are a delicious Southern-Style bean and one of the best comfort foods. This recipe is packed with three different beans, flavorful bacon, ground beef, and flavors of tasty sweetness.

Bring these Crock Pot Cowboy Beans as a side dish for your next cookout, family reunion, or tailgating party. They will sure be a hit! This hearty dish is easy to prepare and make right in your crock pot. Nothing says summer BBQ or get-together like some slow cooked beans!

A few weeks ago, we had our County 4-H Fair! I always like to plan ahead on some meals for our family to have during the week. So when I was thinking of some sides to make for the week, these Cowboy Beans came to mind. They are quick to throw together, they feed a crowd, and the leftovers freeze well for later. On busy show days, it's nice to have some food prepared and ready for the lunch break. These beans and some grilled hot dogs were perfect!

Since the freeze up well, the left overs I froze and saved for the following weekend when we headed to the lake and stayed in a cabin with family. We enjoyed the beans there as well.

These Cowboy Beans will be great for fall tailgate parties and meals in the field during harvest as well! I love using my Indianapolis Colts Crock Pot and it will be perfect this! This recipe makes a ton of beans so it's perfect for serving a crowd.

I love making meals and side dishes in my Indianapolis Colts Crock Pot! Cheer on a favorite football team as well as make great meals. Fall harvest is happening during football season. I help my dad and brother with fall harvest by running the auger cart. A lot of thinking can be done while running the auger cart during harvest and meal planning and recipe brainstorming always gets done during this time.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are thick, soft, and chewy. They are loaded with oats, raisins, and delicious flavor. This old fashioned cookie has the perfect texture and soft flavors of cinnamon and raisins. It is sure to be a tried and true oatmeal raisin cookie recipe for your recipe box.

There are so many different types of cookies, but when I think of my favorites, I often feel like I like the simple classics the best! I have always been a huge fan of oatmeal cookies because there are so many things you can mix together for yummy cookies. But this classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookie would be at the top of the list.

This recipe is super easy to make and the cookies always bake up beautifully. The oat to raisin ration is perfect balanced, with a nice addition of cinnamon to tie this cookie all together.

We just had our county 4-H fair a few weeks ago. My oldest son is in his second year of 4-H and shows swine and poultry, so we camp out at the fairgrounds for the week. I always like to have a lot of snacks for the kids, and sometimes their friends too, to come and grab throughout the day. I made up a few different types of cookies for the week, with this Oatmeal Raisin Cookie being one of them.
