Crock Pot Baked Beans and Sausage

Crock Pot Baked Beans and Sausage

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.

Crock Pot Baked Beans and Sausage is also an inexpensive meal to serve, especially if you find the kielbasa on sale. 

This is also an easy gluten free meal. All you have to do to make this gluten free is to make sure that the kielbasa is gluten free.

  1. Yummy Lynn this looks so good. I am always in need of new ways to use up smoked sausage. I just got a new 3 in 1 crock pot for christmas so this will be perfect. I have been making the overnight oatmeal almost every other day.

  2. I went and bought some great northern beans today. LOL I bought dry not remembering if the recipe was for canned or dry beans. How did you prepare your beans for this recipe. You mentioned you had some left over. I prefer dry beans anyhow.

    • @Tina @ Mommys Kitchen, I usually cook up a big batch of beans in the crockpot, then freeze them in small, about 2 cup, containers. This way I can use them instead of canned beans. I soak the beans overnight and just cook the next day in the crockpot with no seasoning, just water and beans. I will usually do 1 or 2 lbs like this in my large crockpot. Then I use the beans in recipes or freeze to use later on. I prefer cooked dried beans to canned beans b/c the texture is so much better. I am not sure if that helps you or not. I hope it does.:)

  3. Our family loves baked beans can i use 3 cans of pork and beans instead. Or are they to soft a bean.

  4. Yum. Sounds great!

  5. I would love for you to link this to Crock Pot Wednesday. The meme for that will be up by Tuesday evening. Happy New Year!
