But, back to these baked beans with pineapple as they really can be the star of your meal. The beans are chock-full of protein and the bacon, pineapple, and BBQ sauce flavors meld together for a sweet and flavorful mouthful in every bite.

Tips for making Hawaiian Baked Beans

These baked beans cook best in a slow cooker or crockpot. Simply add all the ingredients and forget about them. If you would prefer to not use a slow cooker you could cook them on low for several hours in a dutch oven.

This recipe uses canned pineapple but you could also use fresh if you have it on hand.

Don’t forget the bacon or Worcestshire sauce. The recipe doesn’t call for much of either but they definitely add extra flavor!

Can I use crushed pineapple?

Kelli Miller

Tuesday 19th of September 2023

Thank you for your comment on my article about the Easy Hawaiian Baked Beans recipe! Regarding your question, yes, you can definitely use crushed pineapple as a substitute for a can of pineapple chunks in juice in this recipe. It will still provide that delicious tropical flavor to the dish.

Using crushed pineapple may actually enhance the flavor and texture of the baked beans, as the pineapple will be more evenly distributed throughout the dish.

Feel free to give it a try and let me know how it turns out for you. If you have any more questions or need further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask. Enjoy your Hawaiian-inspired baked beans!

I don't typically have much luck freezing beans - they turn gritty on me.

Love the Hawaiian flavor. Everything sounds and tastes so lively and close to nature. A protein-packed dish with mouth-watering flavors. I can imagine being in Hawai and listening to Ukelele music :) Worth trying
