Wonderful mixture of beans, slowly cooked and really tasty. Maureen had a Labor Day picnic for our block every year and always made these beans. Everyone always looked forward to having this sidedish with dinner.

  • In a small roaster or Dutch oven, mix together the green beans, wax beans, butter beans, kidney beans, and baked beans. Mix in the dry mustard, brown sugar, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, and tomato soup.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the pork sausage, crumble, and drain the excess fat from the pan. Saute the onion and garlic with the pork until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir the pork mixture into the bean mixture.

  • Bake, covered, for 3 to 5 hours in the preheated oven, removing the lid for the final 45 minutes.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

I had to do a great many things to these beans to improve the flavor I'm sad to say. 1 tablespoon of chili powder is not NEARLY enough to spice this up. I cooked mine the entire 5 hours and at some point maybe halfway through I decided enough was enough with waiting for the magic to happen and added a chopped bell pepper a chopped jalapeno a handful of dehydrated onions and several more tablespoons of chili powder. To be fair I did use a bigger can of tomato sauce initially than was called for though. In the end we liked the flavor but when I get around to submitting a photo you'll notice how amazingly un-pretty this recipe is. The green yellow red and whitish beans floating in a bright red sauce (not to mention the green beans being so long and obviously green beans) make it look...odd to say the least. I may try this recipe again with different beans & extra dark brown sugar... Read More

I will definitely make these again. A nice change from the usual plain baked beans. I added crumbled bacon also for additional flavor. This smelled wonderful as it was cooking. I cut back on the chili powder depending on the people I was serving. Read More

This dish is delicious unusual and has been a big hit every time I've cooked it. It's a great fall hearty dish and is great leftover for a Sunday afternoon meal. I use a crockpot and cook it for 30 minutes on high then 3-5 hours on low. Read More

i was looking for a baked beans recipe to take to a picnic. Something differant than the same old thing. This was it. I doubled the recipe thinking there would be leftovers to bring home. Boy was I wrong. They ate every last bean! This is a great recipe and so easy. They smelled delicious while cooking and tasted just as good. Thanks Maureen. Read More

Brought this puppy into work and they loved it... can make minor substitutions in the beans... I didn't have wax beans so I used garbanzo beans. Read More

I made these for a carry-in. Hardly anybody touched them at first. I guess they don't look that good. But I liked them and the people I got to try them said they were good. Read More

Excellent! Great compliment to any potluck or BBQ. I followed the recipe to the T. I cooked these beans a day in advance for my daughters 2nd birthday party. I warmed them up in the crockpot. Everyone loved them. Not spicy or too sweet. Just right! Thanks for the recipe. Hope ya'll like the picture I posted. Read More

Try this if you're looking for variations on a baked beans recipe: Saute onions and chopped bacon in a skillet with brown sugar apple cider vinegar and a touch or dry mustard. Once cooked and caramelized add to mixture of the following: Butter beans kidney beans lima beans and any assorted beans to your taste. Mix thoroughly and put into a glass baking dish in a 350 degree oven for 45 min. or until bubbly around the edges and center. Delish! Read More
