55 oz can of baked beans
1 large apple (i used fuji.), diced or cut into chunks
1/2 c natural applesauce
Freshly grated nutmeg to taste
2 Tbsp dijon mustard
1 pinch small pinch, McCormick cayenne pepper
2-4 Tbsp Domino brown sugar, light
1 lb hot ground sausage (i used venison sausage.)
1 small onion, diced
1. Brown the sausage with the onions. Drain off grease.
2. Place the applesauce, apple chunks, mustard, brown sugar, cayenne pepper into a bowl. Grate in fresh nutmeg. It only takes a little nutmeg. Too much will overpower the other flavors. Stir together until mixed well.
3. In large bowl, mix the spicey apple mixture into the beans. Add sausage and onions. Fold in.
4. Bake in a glass or stoneware dish at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
