I like starting out with recipe ideas and adding ingredients to make them mine. This bean dish, passed to our family by a friend, got a double-dash of barbecue sauce flavor from me. I have all sons—no daughters. But I'm not afraid of losing our family recipes. My boys love to help cook!


  • 1/2 pound bulk sweet Italian sausage
  • 1/4 pound pepperoni, sliced thin
  • 1/2 pound smoked kielbasa, sliced
  • 1/2 cup spicy barbecue sauce
  • 1 can (16 ounces) pork and beans, undrained
  • 1 can (16 ounces) red kidney beans, undrained
  • 1 can (16 ounces) hot chili beans, undrained
  • 1 can (16 ounces) cannellini beans, drained
  • 1 can (16 ounces) butter beans, drained
  • 1 can (16 ounces) lima beans, drained
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) tomato soup, undiluted
  • 3 ounces tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar or to taste
  • 6 slices bacon


  1. Form the Italian sausage into 1-in. balls. Brown in skillet, drain. Combine with remaining ingredients, except bacon, in 5-qt. casserole or in small roasting pan. Partially cook bacon in microwave or on stovetop; arrange over casserole. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 1-1/2 hours. Serve hot or cold.
