“This is another quick throw together, close to junk food dinner. When you are busy nutrition sometimes flies out the window and comfort food climbs in. Make it spicy or don't add any hot sauce, use fresh garlic & onions or follow the recipe - your choice”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (14 ounce) can pork & beans
  • 10 ounces hot smoked spicy sausage, cut in bite size pieces
  • 3 tablespoons dried garlic flakes or 3 fresh garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons dried onion flakes or 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons hot sauce (I use Denzils, Peaches n' Scream) (optional)
  • 4 slices processed cheese or 4 slices your choice cheese
  • 4 tablespoons salsa (optional)
  • 1 large bun, cut in half (Submerine, Italian)
