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

"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...

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.

Delicious collard greens recipe

I like the collard greens with this and would probably like spinach too but since I liked it with the collards I'll continue to use that. I didnt add the molasses either since there was some already in the BBQ sauce I used. Someone suggested Kraft Light but check your ingredients. Just because it says light doesnt mean its healthy. I use Stubbs Original. Compared to Kraft it does not have any sucralose or preservitives and as a bonus, less sodium.

Really Delicious

I also used spinach instead of collard greens. Really good. I left the molasses out since I'm diabetic and didn't want that sugar.

As for the sauce, I used the original blend of the Stubbs All-Natural. It only has 4-5g of sugar compared to 9g+ from Kraft. Very tasty.

Easy to make, great flavor
A hit at our house

I substituted spinach for collards and it was great. It tasted even better the next day. You can't beat this for a quick meal without all of the muss and fuss. I have a few picky eaters in my family and they all enjoyed it.

Easy to make, economical, great flavor

I only used one can of beans bc I was making it for one person for the week just seemed like a lot of beans but I shluld have cut down on the bbq sauce as well. It just didnt seem so healthy to me since we are using bbq sauce in it but it was tasty

Tasty beans onions sauce and the sausage
