This meal was a snap to throw into the crockpot on a busy day and have ready to go by dinner. Served with some bread I had pulled out of the freezer, it was quite a hit!
Sweet Sausage & Beans
1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups frozen lima beans, thawed
2 cups frozen cut green beans
1 pound smoked sausage, cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 (16 ounce) can baked beans
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
In a slow cooker, layer carrots, onion, lima beans, green beans, sausage and baked beans. Combine ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar and mustard; pour over beans. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or until vegetables are tender. Stir before serving. 4 Servings
Stumpf Notes: My crew doesn't enjoy cooked carrots, so I omitted. I could see putting in carrot puree next time. I used one can of green beans in place of frozen. I doubled this recipe, and it fed our crew nicely with some leftover for lunch.
