We are in the middle of a fantastic grill season and I simply love these beans as an accompaniment to anything that comes off of the grill – especially a hamburger! This recipe that I came up with happens to be a pork-free variation, but I would definitely throw some bacon in with the onions when I saute them if I had it on hand! These are very easy!

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 cups cooked beans (white, northern, pinto) (for instructions on cooking beans click here)
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup organic ketchup
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • sprinkle of nutmeg
  • sprinkle (or more) of sucanat (or brown sugar)
Saute the onions in the butter until translucent (about 5 minutes) in a skillet (I use my cast iron). Add the beans and mix to get them all coated in the butter and onions. Add all remaining ingredients except for sucanat (or brown sugar) and stir well to combine. Heat over low heat while everything else for dinner is cooking (longer is better for more flavor). Add the sucanat (or brown sugar) just before pulling off of the heat. They taste fabulous the next day too!
