Barbecued Beans and Sausage

Did you grow up eating Pork and Beans? Yeah, me too. I loved them. While this recipe may bring back memories, it is definitely not like those little cans of cold beans and fatty pork.




I stumbled across this recipe over at Cinnamon's blog. She has the most beautiful family you just have to see to believe; make sure you visit.  Anyway, after clicking on a couple of links I ended up at the original recipe. Boy, I'm glad I clicked away that day, because this recipe is super yummy.

Wouldn't you know when I try a recipe that we are going to L-O-V-E, I make the original servings! Yep, I should have doubled the recipe because it is so good.  As I was clicking that day, I read this was a grown up version of the childhood favorite ~ Beanie Weenies.  Let me tell you, these are mind blowing good! Way better than Beanie Weenies ever thought about being.

I did make a couple of changes like, leaving out the Worchester Sauce, using regular yellow mustard and adding a little water for sauce.


BBQ Beans and Sausage

2 cans Great Northern beans, drained, rinsed
2 cans Black beans, drained, rinsed
1 large onion, chopped 
1 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 TBSP mustard
2 tsp chili powder
1 package polish sausage (I use turkey)
1 cup water

Mix all the ingredients except for the sausage in a slow cooker. Slice the sausage and place on top of the bean mixture and cook on low for 3-4 hours.

If you noticed in the picture, I cut my sausage in different sizes. Half the sausage, I slice in half long ways and then slice those two pieces up. The other half, I slice in rings. Just a little difference with each fork full.
