I needed to bring a side dish to a football party, so I decided to make some kind of "kicked up" baked beans for the first time. I walked into my pantry and picked some ingredients that I thought would taste good together and voila! Kim's Kicked Up Baked Beans were born! For my first time outta the gate making these, they turned out DELICIOUS!! I hope you all enjoy them as much as my fellow football friends and I did!
In a separate skillet, saute onions and green peppers until semi-tender.
While sausage and veggies are cooking/sauteing, pour cans of beans into a deep baking dish. Add the ground mustard, brown sugar, worcestershire sauce and ground red pepper to beans and stir around to incorporate spices.
Once sausage and veggie mixture are cooked, add both to beans and stir around to evenly distribute & incorporate sausage/veggie mixture into and throughout beans.
