Recipe Notes

Depending upon your preference, these baked beans can be tangy, sweet or spicy. For a sweeter flavor, use a sweet-based barbecue sauce and only 1 tablespoon of dried mustard. For a more tangy flavor, use an "original-flavored" barbecue sauce and add 3 tablespoons of dried mustard. To increase the heat or spice of the recipe, add 1 tablespoon of white ground pepper.

The following is an estimate for one serving.
