I have to tell you, these beans are good and it’s one of those dishes that gets better the next day.  I actually ate this for lunch for three days straight and enjoyed every single bite!  Perhaps I shouldn’t be sharing that, but they’re that good! 

It’s smoky from the smoked paprika, a little sweet from the brown sugar and the perfect amount of salty from the bacon.  Just yum…..seriously.

I also really love that the list of ingredients are pretty regular ingredients that are easy to keep on hand.  Which is so great if you get invited to a last minute potluck.

Pin this recipe for later!

These smoky beans are also easy to make.  Cook some bacon, saute some veggies, whisk together a quick sauce and mix it all up with  a trio of beans.  

At this point, it’s ready to bake OR you can refrigerate it if you want to bake it off later.  And as I already mentioned, the leftovers taste even better the next day.

This is the perfect kind of dish to bring to a potluck and would also be great at a summer barbecue.  It will be the dish that disappears quickly.

Give this smoky three bean bake a try and see if you like them as much as my family and me.
