I never loved any baked bean or calico bean recipes that I have come across and I was always bummed because I really wanted to like them. They are a potluck staple... Right!? Everyone always tried to get me to like their recipe; but no such luck. I was forced to try these... I WAS HOOKED... and so was my husband! Looks like a lot of ingredients but it's super easy; dump, mix, bake!!
1) In a large mixing bowl; whisk together the garlic, brown sugar, mustard, liquid smoke, salt & pepper blend, BBQ sauce, onion, jalapeno, and bell pepper.
2) Pan fry the ring bologna just to slightly crisp up and render some of the grease out. Drain on toweling and then add to the sauce bowl. Cook bacon until crisp; crumble and set aside.
3) Pour black, kidney, and white beans in a colander and rinse well; let drain and then dump into a foil turkey roasting pan or lasagna pan. Pour baked beans with sauce into roasting pan and then top with the sauce mixture and reserved bacon; stir gently to mix.
4) Bake at 350 to 400 degrees for about an hour. You can also place on a grill over med/low heat and grill for about an hour. Mix beans half way through cooking time no matter which way you cook them to prevent any burning. Let beans sit for 15 minutes after done cooking; this is the hardest part of the recipe; but well worth the wait!! Enjoy!!
**Or you can dump everything in a crock pot or nesco and cook on low 4 to 6 hours; or high 3 to 4 hours.
