    In a large pot over MEDIUM heat, saute the onions, bell pepper, and garlic until the onions are transparent. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot: the smoked paprika, cumin, celery salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, yellow mustard, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, Kevin's Natural Foods BBQ sauce, and the beans. Mix all the ingredients together. Allow the pot to come to a slight boil then transfer the contents to an oven-safe casserole dish.

    Place the beans in the oven, uncovered, and bake for 1-hour, or until the beans are tender. If the beans appear to dry out, add water as needed. Towards the end of the cooking time, I added another 1 cup of water.

    BBQ BAKED BEANS with Fried Egg

    For each serving, in a small skillet, fry 1 to 2 eggs in extra virgin olive oil. Place hot BBQ Baked Beans in a shallow bowl and spread the beans aside in the center. When the eggs are finished, slide in the center of the beans and top with chopped green onions, salt and pepper and serve with your favorite hot sauce.
