  • 4 15 oz. cans navy beans rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups sweet yellow onion chopped
  • 2 large green bell peppers chopped
  • 2 T dry mustard
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 350 
  • Rinse and drain beans
  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, folding the beans in last
  • Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes


Depending upon your preference, these baked beans can be tangy, sweet or spicy. For a sweeter flavor, use a sweet-based barbecue sauce and only 1 tablespoon of dried mustard. For a more tangy flavor, use an "original-flavored" barbecue sauce and add 3 tablespoons of dried mustard. To increase the heat or spice of the recipe, add 1 tablespoon of white ground pepper.
