“This is a down-home country, stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal, passed down from an old man my dad once knew. He used a lot more onions that what I use, but that's a personal preference. I have also made it with onion powder or dried minced onion, and it's always good. It's great on a blustery fall or winter day with corn-bread.”

  1. Place the beef and sausage in a skillet over medium heat, and cook until evenly brown; drain grease. Mix in onion and garlic, and cook until tender. Stir in baked beans, butter beans, ketchup, barbeque sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper. Cover, reduce heat to low, and continue cooking 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

I made a few substitutions but my husband really enjoyed the end result! To reduce the fat and sodium content, I made my own spicy pork sausage using a recipe submitted by Erika on AllRecipes.com and used Northern White Beans instead of butter beans (which my hub doesn't care for). The recipe was easy to "lighten up" by purchasing low-fat, low-sodium canned baked beans and low-sodium BBQ sauce. To further reduce the fat, I simply browned the meats, then drained, and rinsed with really hot tap water before turning back into the skillet. The best part was, my hub had two helpings and never noticed a thing missing! Thanks for a keeper.



This was even better than I thought it would be! I used ground turkey instead of beef. The sausage and baked beans added a sweetness to the meal that I really liked. My husband put cheese and tortilla chips on top to make nachos. I served it with Golden Sweet Cornbread found on allrecipes. Perfect Super Bowl meal!



This wouldn't be one I'd serve to company (obviously) but overall this was cheap, quick and easy, and tasted good... three attributes that I generally look for in new recipes. I served this with Paula Deen's Corn Casserole. Everything was very filling, and in my estimation this dish would make for a kid friendly dinner. I did not use butter beans, I used great northern beans. I will keep this one in my file for those instances where I'm trying to stretch a dinner out with a not so elastic budget.
