BBQ Baked Beans & Sausage

July/August 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (189 votes)

Here we turn baked beans into an easy main dish by adding chicken sausage and collard greens. Serve with: Coleslaw and cornbread.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Looks yummy - but agree that I would replace the collard greens with spinach! BUT THIS IS SUPPOSE TO BE HEALTHLY??? Suggest you forget about the molasses (!) and substitute Kraft LIGHT bbq sauce to cut down on the sugar related carbs...

Great flavor, easy to make

We substituted the collard greens for spinach. It was so easy and very tasty.

I never understand the people who have to moan about sodium, or sugar, or carbohydrates or whatever. Either adjust the recipe or don't use it. I am a type 2 diabetic, and can use this recipe quite well. It didn't raise my sugars because I also exercise.

Anyway, quite a nice recipe that could be easily altered to fit one's dietary needs.

Easy, tasty, healthy

Sounds delicious.

I am definitely going to try this , I love baked beans and it sounds delicious. AND it DOES seem pretty healthy to me. Molasses is good for you and there's only one Tablespoon in whole recipe. Plus as another reader suggested Stubbs BBQ sauce is much lower in sugar and sodium, plus it tastes better! As with all things one needs to watch out for themselves and learn to read, read, READ labels. Lite is just a word used to sell things it has NO meaning, Light means it is reduced calories (not necessarily carbs or sodium) over the brands original recipe and HEALTHY is determined by your overall diet and exercise, not just one recipe.

Baked White Beans and Sausage.

Nice recipe.....I like canned Cannellini Beans. I used Spinach in place of any other leafy greens. I think I might try Escarole next time. Also store bought BBQ sauce is so unhealthy. I always make my own. There are many recipes to follow on the internet. Be careful of the addition of salt and sugars. I also added shredded carrots to make a whole meal even better. Bon appetite

This is a wonderful picnic dish, or for a regular meal, any time of the week.

My husband loved it!

My husband loved these. If you like sweet and saucy bean recipes, then this is right up your alley. Didn’t have the collard greens so I had to substitute Kale in the video demonstration. I also lacked molasses so I substituted with equal parts maple syrup. This was easy to make and made a great side dish to our dinner entrée.
