Slow Cooker Sweet Saucy Baked Beans
Slow Cooker Sweet Saucy Baked Beans has been a rich, delicious addition to our meals. My husband enjoys it the most and even takes it to work with him to eat for lunch. It’s very filling, but is easy enough to use as a side dish. It’s quite easy to put together. Just lightly brown the sausage, a few cans of beans and a great combination of sweet and tangy sauces and pop some bacon and onion in and viola, you have a great baked bean dish!
You can use Polska Kielbasa instead of Smoked Sausage just slice the same and lightly brown. I used Black Beans because it gives an amazing color with the pork and beans but feel free to swap it to a different bean if your family prefers.
I made this in my 7 quart slow cooker and I needed a frying pan, cutting board, knives, measuring cups and spoons. I keep all of these ingredients on hand in my pantry except the Smoked Sausage, as they’re a staple in our home. That is one of the ways I try to stay frugal. Have those staples on hand so that you don’t need extra trips to the store, and can cook from home more often.
