  John Willingham's Sweet & Sassy Beans
Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     1/4  pound         breakfast sausage or bacon -- Crumbled
     1/4  cup           onion -- diced
     1/4  pound         pulled or chopped smoked pork butt
   4                    pork 'n beans
     1/4  cup           Sweet Bar-B-Q Sauce
     1/2  cup           molasses
   1 1/2  tablespoons   W'ham Mild Seasoning
     1/2  teaspoon      liquid smoke -- optional

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large skillet, cook the sausage and onion over medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes until the sausage is browned and the onion softened. Add the pork and cook for 2 to 3 minutes longer until the meat is just heated through. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the pork & beans, sauce, molasses, seasoning mix and liquid smoke, if using. Stir well and transfer into a deep casserole. The dish should be large enough to hold the mixture so that it is no deeper than 4 inches and no shallower than 2 inches. Add the sausage/pork mixture. Stir well.

Cook in the oven, covered, for 2-1/2 hours until hot and bubbling and the flavors are well-blended.
