It’s a cold, blustery day outside today. But inside there’s a cinnamon candle burning on my table, a Focus on the Family radio drama in the CD player, a yummy supper cooking in the crock pot.
On the menu tonight – barbeque baked beans – a stick to your ribs comfort food that is fast and cheap – especially when you use dry beans that you cooked yourself.
Tonight we added a pound of fried sausage to the beans to make it even more hearty.
It took about 10 minutes to throw together and is sending the most delicious smells through the house!
Barbecue Baked Beans
1/2 cup ketchup
3/4 cup tangy barbecue sauce
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoons mustard
3 cup canned white beans
salt to taste
Mix the ketchup, barbecue sauce, water, Worcestershire sauce, honey and mustard. Bring to a boil. Simmer 5 minutes.
Add beans and salt to taste.
Transfer to a greased casserole dish and bake uncovered at 325 degrees for 1 hour.
Or put in a greased crock pot and cook on low for 4 hours or on high for 2 hours. The crock pot version won’t be as thick – but just as delicious!
