BRAND WINNER JIMMY DEAN Pork Sausage. The addition of sausage to a traditional baked bean dish made this recipe a Southern Living Cook-Off category winner. It uses canned beans and bottled barbecue sauce and is hearty enough to be a main dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pork sausage in an ovenproof Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain, reserving 2 teaspoons drippings in Dutch oven. Return sausage to Dutch oven, and stir in onion, next 8 ingredients, and, if desired, garlic powder.

Step 2

Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until thickened and bubbly.

I made this for a weeknight meal. It was easy and very tasty. I served this over potato rolls and my guys loved it.

Fantastic and EASY recipe to serve to a crowd! Like Froggygirl, my husband does not like baked beans and he loved this recipe.

I get a lot of requests to bring the baked beans to cookouts and family gatherings. Even my BF, who previously claimed to not like baked beans, loves them. I've tried the different varieties of Jimmy Dean sausage, and enjoy the Maple variety in the fall with tailgates and fall activities. The original is my favorite though.
