Fast & Easy Dinner: BBQ Baked Beans and Sausage

Fast & Easy Dinner: BBQ Baked Beans and Sausage


This affordable recipe turns an ordinary can of beans into a spectacular yet simple meal. With the help of supermarket sauces like barbecue sauce, tomato paste, and molasses, rinsed navy beans take on a sweet, smoky flavor. Combine with greens, onions, and chicken sausage for a dish that is balanced and filling. Before heading to the store, raid your fridge and pantry for the ingredients — red or white beans can be used instead of navy beans and really, any thick, juicy sausage will work wonderfully in this recipe.

Ingredients

1/2 cup prepared barbecue sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon molasses
1/8 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1 tablespoon canola oil

Directions

  1. Whisk barbecue sauce, water, tomato paste, molasses, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

  4. Reduce heat to medium-low; add beans and the sauce mixture to the pan. Gently stir to combine, cover and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes.
