This is my mama's recipe. It has always been a "must-have" side at all of our BBQs! Goes very well alongside potato salad too. The sausage gives it such a great flavor. If you try this recipe, you'll never wanna go back to "plain" baked beans.

Browning sausage gives these baked beans a wonderful extra punch of flavor and adds heartiness to the dish. These baked beans are an easy way to spice up canned beans with minimal ingredients. With just the right amount of sweetness, these will be a great addition to your cookouts. Delicious for a potluck too.
