"This recipe has been a favorite for 30 years. Great at picnics as a side dish, where the guys gave it it's nickname (Blame the Dog). Serve this alone as a main dish with coleslaw and crusty rolls, or as a side dish."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Cook's Note
  • This recipe may also be cooked on High for 4 hours in a slow cooker. You may need to spoon off some of the excess liquid from time to time.
  • This is great for potluck suppers, and can really stretch a meal. Sometimes I even cut up a few hot dogs and add them in.

Excellent! I added 1/2# of bacon, and browned the sausage and vegetables in about a T of the bacon grease. Will definitely make again.

I added a bit of diced jalapeno to give it a kick. Skipped the celery, just didn't seem to fit. Super, the kids really liked it!

I adapted this a bit, since neither my husband or I liked ketchup and I didn't have canned baked beans on hand. I used barbecue sauce and all navy beans which I cooked up from scratch. Was tas...

This was good. I liked the wine in it. It's a grown up beans and weenies :) Honestly wasn't a fan of the kidney beans in this but that was just me. And I forgot the celery :S Oops. I cooked this...

Too sweet. Didn't like this
