Number of Servings: 32


    1 Green Pepper
    1 small onion
    2 TBS olive oil

    1 roll ground sausage

    2 cans White Northern
    2 cans Red Kidney
    2 cans Pintos

    1 bottle Hickory Smoked BBQ sauce
    1 cup brown sugar
    ½ Honey
    2 TBS Black pepper
    2 TBS Garlic powder


Preheat oven to 350. Spray a large casserole pan with Pam or similar.
Chop onion and green pepper finely and fry in 2 Tbs olive oil until almost burned. Pour into a casserole pan. Cook sausage smashing it up to make sure there aren’t any big chunks. When cooked, place in casserole pan.

Open all the can of beans, drain only half of the liquid, and pour the beans into the casserole pan.

Add BBQ sauce, brown sugar, honey, Black pepper and garlic powder. Stir carefully until fully mixed. Taste and add more sugar, honey, pepper, garlic per taste if needed.

Place in oven and cook for at least an hour at 350. The longer the beans cook the better they taste. If you can put them on about 4 to 6 hours before serving, turn the temperature down to 250 after an hour and let them simmer.

Makes about 32 half-cup servings.
