Some of the best recipes are the simple ones like this Crock Pot Baked Beans and Sausage recipe. The type of recipes that contain only a few ingredients that you almost always have on hand are the ones we turn to the most.
Crock Pot Baked Beans and Sausage is a recipe that I have been making for years. I have probably been making this recipe for close to twenty years. I think I first adapted the recipe from an old Taste of Home recipe.
I love this recipe because it is a simple and basic dinner that goes together in no time. It is not a pretty dinner, but it is delicious.
When my kids were little they loved me to make this for dinner.
This recipe also works great for have taking to church dinners and potlucks. I have taken it to so many potluck type meals over the years.
The recipe is a fairly basic baked bean recipe with kielbasa added to make it a main dish.
Recipes like this are so nice because you can put it quickly in the crock pot early in the day and have dinner waiting at 6:00 or whenever time you need it.
