Baked Beans with Sausage

Baked Beans with Sausage is definitely comfort food dinner for me..

My Granny would make Baked Beans with Sausage all the time when I was a kid and it was always a favorite! 

This is a delicious recipe perfect to toss in the crock pot for dinner later that night or to cook on the stove top for a few hours.
To top it off the kids love it too or devour might be a better word! I also love how budget friendly this meal is at about 10.00 total to feed 5. That comes out to $2.00 a piece. 

Here's how to make Baked Beans with Sausage. It's a favorite use for dried beans.

Soak overnight 1 pound Dried Great Northern Beans covered with about water 2 inches of water. Drain beans and cover with water in a large soup pot. Boil until tender and reserve 3 cups liquid from the cooked beans.

In a large soup pot add: 
  • 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • 1 whole Onion, Diced
Sauté over medium-high heat until starting to caramelize.

  • 4 cloves Garlic Minced
  • 4 tablespoon Tomato Paste
Stir until tomato paste is distributed in with the onions.

Cooked bean liquid being poured into tomato paste and sautéd onions.

Add 3 cups reserved Cooking Liquid from cooked beans.

  • 1/4 cup Molasses
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Granulated Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tablespoon White Wine Vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Cooked Beans
Baked Beans in a large pot.

Bring to a simmer, cover and cook over low heat or add to the crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours. 

If cooking on the stove top cook a minimum of 2 hours. 

Chop and add 1 pound Smoked Sausage to the beans. I like Linguica, Andouille or whatever other smoked sausage I have on hand that I think would go well with baked beans.

Cook for 1 additional hour over low heat. 

Baked Beans with Sausage is a delicious hearty comfort food recipe and great way to use up dried beans! I hope you love it as much as we do!
