“I have always disliked baked beans, but I was served and couldn't stop eating these. A few years later I found out it was a recipe from Dinosaur Barbecue, a famous restaurant based in Rochester, NY. I searched the internet for a version of the recipe not using Dinosaur BBQ's "Mutha Sauce," and doubled the amount of Italian sausage to make them really meaty. I cooked this in a cast-iron dutch oven and brought it camping the next day. It was amazing reheated and great with potatoes baked in the fire. It's almost like chili and very filling. NOTE: I'm not sure about the serving amount. This really makes plenty, and everyone ate several big helpings.”

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil to medium-high in a large saucepan, and cook onion and pepper until soft, adding salt and pepper.
  2. When softened, add garlic and cook another minute.
  3. Add sausage, crumbling it into small pieces while it cooks.
  4. Drain some of the liquid from the beans- make it about the same level in the can as the beans themselves. Mix into the sausage/veggies.
  5. Turn the heat down to medium-low and add remaining ingredients. Cook for 5-7 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately, or let cool and reheat. We loved this the next day, as the flavors had a chance to really mix.
