Beans and Weenies
These are not the beans and weenies you may have eaten as a kid. Not even close. Smoky bacon, sweet baked beans, and kickin’ jalapenos. You definitely won’t confuse them with the canned version
- 4 large smoked sausage or your favorite kind of sausages, cut into 2"-3" pieces
- 8 slices bacon
- 2 cans baked beans
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 small red onion minced
- ground black pepper
- Worcestershire sauce
- 2 jalapenos sliced
- 6 green onions sliced
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Simmer sausages in 2" of water for 10 minutes.
Cut bacon into 1/2" pieces and cook in a large saute pan until almost crisp. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Reserve the drippings.
Add sausage to saute pan and brown lightly on all sides. Remove.
Spray a 9" x 13" baking dish with non-stick spray. Add in the beans, garlic, onion, and pepper. Stir.
Place sausage pieces into the bean mixture, pushing them in.
Sprinkle top of dish with Worcestershire sauce (I used about 2 tablespoons).
Scatter the jalapenos, green onions and thyme over the top of the dish.
Spoon a little of the reserved bacon drippings around.
Place in oven on a rack above a baking pan (in case some drips down) and bake for 40 minutes or until bubbly hot.
