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

Hmmmm...I'm not much of a sausage person, but I would probably try this. Chicken sausages aren't bad. And I like beans.

A variation of this my go to dinner - I use greens (collard or kale usually) cannellini beans, and sausage (usually light keilbasa). I start by cooking up a small onion with some paprika then I add the sausage and some garlic and cook off until it has some color. Then I add the beans (sometimes I'll add white wine or lemon juice) and cook for about 5 minutes and finally I'll add the greens and cook for another 20 minutes. Its great!
