BBQ Baked Beans Recipe
No summer picnic is complete without Barbecue Baked Beans and luckily - we have two sauce options that make a great base for your beans! Whether you're looking for sweet and spicy notes of hickory or you like to bring on the southern honey mustard - we have you covered!
First, let's talk about Sweet Hickory Sauce and how this sauce can satisfy the masses. This sauce is a classic molasses-based barbecue sauce that has been elevated with the addition of hickory-smoked paprika. The result is a rich and thick sauce with deep notes of hickory smoke and a touch of sweetness from the molasses.
Next up, we have our Southern Honey Mustard Sauce. This is a lighter sauce that is still packed with flavor. The mustard provides a nice tang, while the honey and brown sugar give it a touch of sweetness. This sauce also has a kick of heat from the cayenne pepper, which makes it perfect for those who like a little spice in their life!
So whether you're looking for a classic barbecue taste or something a little different, we've got you covered. Be sure to try our Barbecue Baked Beans at your next picnic!
