Slow Cooker Baked Beans with Sausage

Slow Cooker Baked Beans with Sausage is a one-pot meal that’s ready when you are.

On a chilly winter day, it’s a relief to arrive home after a busy day with supper pretty much cooked. With just 10 minutes of simple prep in the morning, this recipe for slow cooker baked beans has just one easy step remaining before supper’s on the table. The beans have all day to cook in their flavourful sauce and then you simply lay the sausage on top to cook and release extra flavour into the bean mixture. Prep a basic salad and you’re all set.

No bean soaking required

We use canned white beans for this recipe to avoid the planning and time required to soak beans from dry and pre-cook them. If you’d prefer to use dried beans in this recipe be sure that they’re fully cooked before you add them to the slow cooker. This recipe calls for just 1 1/2 cups of water which isn’t enough for partially cooked beans.

This recipe is a contemporary riff on old times beans & wieners. It works with all of your favourite sausage flavours. We have made it with garlic and herb sausage, spicy chorizo and a low-fat sun-dried tomatoes.

    Can these recipes be adapted for Diabetics (Pre-Diabetics)?

    Hi wish you had the nutritional break down including sodium and calcium as well as the other stuff.. on a sodium reduced diet and also trying to up my calcium intake and I have heard molasses is high and so are the beans. So thought this might be a good option.

      Janet, Sorry about the nutritional information. There are lots of apps out there that can help you with your needs. I use MyFitnessPal, I can import a recipe and it will tell me a lot of details that most recipes may not provide. It may help you with your sodium-reduced diet.

    This recipe calls for cooking “on medium for 6-8 hours.”

    I am puzzled, as our slow cookers have High / Low / Keep Warm options…

    Is this an error in the recipe, or are there slow cookers with a Medium setting?

    Having trouble printing your newer recipes. The print button on the left of the blog takes me to the “add this to social media page.” Never had trouble before printing your recipes, which are always great btw. :)

    How do I print the recipes you post? I have had to write them as you do not seem to
    offer a print option?

    • April 22, 2017

      why would you not just copy and paste them to word pad and then print?
