I must say this is my first time reviewing a recipe. The ingredients looked different and interesting at the same time, the mixture looked awful in the crockpot, BUT, Oh Wow what a great flavor.
For the kraut lover in me - this dish is great! My kids & dh find it acceptable - not kraut fans but they'll eat this dish, so I'm happy. I've made this twice "as is" with the addition of smoked turkey sausage. I might cut back a bit on the sugar since the canned beans already have a lot in them to begin with. I've shared this recipe with my parents and my father was gaga over it. Growing up my family mixed beans and kraut all time and loved it over mashed potatoes - the combo came from a CORN night and stuck. Thanks for the keeper!
Due to where we now live, my husband has started coming home at lunchtime so I've been trying to have something easy made for those times. This fit the bill. I put it together, put it in the oven, and the kids and I could still go out and play. I used 2 veggie Italian sausage links that were still frozen. Next time I'd use all 4 in the box. While I thought this had good taste, we thought it was way too sweet. I'd make it again but increase the sausage and decrease the brown sugar by half.
Great recipe. Sweet and savory. Easy to prepare. I only had to purchase the sausage as I had the rest on hand. I didn't realize my beans already had brown sugar and honey but it was still good despite the excess brown sugar. I also like this recipe because I believe it will fun to experiment with by adding bellpeppers and/or red onions, worcestershire, etc. Thanks for posting it's a keeper!
