Baked Honey and Mustard Butter Beans

I've loved the idea of baking beans ever since I discovered my favorite recipe for preparing limas.
I guess this recipe is just another extension of that. I'm wondering however, if Scottish tinned butter beans are different from US butter beans? These weren't anywhere near as pretty as A Wee Bit of Cooking's beans. I'll try again with another type of bean as I'm sure this is a sound recipe!
Tasty, but I wanted to love them just a little more than I did.

Baked Honey and Mustard Butter Beans:
(A Wee Bit of Cooking's blog)

1 can of butter beans, drained, rinsed and dried
1 Tbs honey
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp wholegrain mustard (I didn't have this, so used Country Dijon for both teaspoons of 'tard)
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
A few thyme sprigs

Preheat oven to 375
Mix the honey, mustard, a glug of olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Add the butter beans and toss well.
Add beans to a oven proof dish and scatter across thyme. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden on top.

omg you made them! My mouth is watering just reading the recipe again although we had some amazing arugula tonight from Greenling so I should be content with my lot. :)
