This is one of the most scrumptious, easiest recipes I've come upon for a festive occasion. Better yet, it can be made in your slow cooker and won't take up anymore oven space.
6 thick-sliced bacon strips, chopped
4 cans (16 ounces each) baked beans
1 can (21 ounces) apple pie filling
12 can (12 ounces) root beer
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, optional
In a skillet cook bacon until crisp. Remove; discard drippings.
In a Slow Cooker stir in baked beans, pie filling, root beer, and bacon. Cover and cook on low for four hours.
At the end of four hours, take lid off, give it a stir, and cook an additional two hours with lid off on slow.
When done, if desired, sprinkle with cheese and close lid and allow to melt.
