Well, it’s the end of the football season! One more game. The "Big One". I’m planning on having 15 or 20 people over for the game, and trying to get the menu ready. One thing for sure, it’s all going to be cooked in the smoker. Some of the things that are being smoked are Tri Tips, Salmon, Baby back ribs, Boudin, Wings, of course, and Pork butt. My mind is going crazy just thinking about the explosion of flavor awaiting!
It’s easy to figure out what main course to cook for the game, but what about the side dishes? One of my favorites is baked beans. This recipe isn’t just a "dump a can of pork and beans in a pan and heat it up" recipe. This is so much better! Of course keep in mind this is a recipe that my family and friends just love. It may not be your favorite but try it and see how others like it.
To begin, I start out with 2- 22oz. cans of Bush’s Grillin’ beans, Steak House Recipe. There’s a lot of different flavors and they all taste great. Then I use 2-15oz. cans of Ranch Style beans with Jalapenos. Mix these together in a crock pot and add 1lb. cooked Jimmy Deans hot pork sausage. The last ingredient is the brown sugar. I usually use about 2 cups but add to what you think taste good. Simmer for about an hour and they’re ready to serve. That’s the great thing about these recipes. You can change it and make it yours. We all have different tastes. My family likes spicy foods, yours may not. You can substitute the Ranch Style beans with Jalapenos with the beans without Jalapenos or the hot sausage with mild. If you like a little kick in your food, stick with the original recipe. Even my 8yr old loves these beans. This recipe will feed about 6 people so you can adjust accordingly.
I just wanted to throw something different out there for your Super Bowl party. Try it out and let us know how it turns out. GBR!!!
