Sensational Baked Beans

1 cup (one 8-ounce can) Hunt's Tomato Sauce
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
2 tablespoons pourable Splenda or Sugar Twin
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
30 ounces (three 16-ounce cans) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup finely chopped onion
6 tablespoons Hormel Bacon Bits

This picnic staple is an ideal use for slow cookers. The long, low-heat method is great for flavor and tenderness--and you don't have to heat up the house with your oven.

Spray a slow cooker container with butter-flavored cooking spray. In prepared container, combine tomato sauce, mustard, Splenda and Worcestershire sauce. Stir in great northern beans. Add onion and bacon bits. Mix well to combine. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Mix well before serving.
