  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Bake, covered, for 3 to 5 hours in the preheated oven, removing the lid for the final 45 minutes.

Excellent pot of beans! I used crockpot. Everyone went back for seconds.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

I had to try these since my name is Maureen. I've made these beans three times and each time the group raved about them and I had requests for the recipe!

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.
