What is good to eat with the wonderful Nova Scotia brown bread I posted yesterday? Baked beans of course!
These are so easy to make. Why not give them a try for memorial day? Saute' a large diced onion, 1 green pepper (diced) and a poblano pepper (diced), in a few tablespoons of oil. Bacon grease is even better if you have some.
Add 4 cans of beans, your choice. I used great northern, black beans and pinto beans.
Add 1 C. of BBQ sauce. I used my maple barbecue sauce from one of my maple trips.
Add 1/2 C. of brown sugar.
Next, 1/4 C. of cider vinegar.
2 tsp. of dijon mustard
Add 2 tablespoons of chili powder, 2 tablespoons of cumin and 2 tablespoons of tomato paste.
Add 1-2 tsp. of liquid smoke. Add S&P to taste.
Bake at 325 degrees for 2 hours.
For the last half hour, I added some sliced knockwurst. You can add hot dogs or any kind of sausage you like.
I served it with a big slice of the Nova Scotia brown bread and a scoop of macaroni salad. I had some happy boys when they saw this.
