This is definitely one for those nights when you don't have much time to prepare dinner. It needs to bake for one hour but it's so fast to put together, that you could get it ready in the morning, and refrigerate until you get home, then just pop it in the oven. Very delicious and amazingly easy, what more could you ask for? From Heirloom Recipes, submitted my M.R. She suggests 2 pounds of kielbasa for 6 servings. I cut it down to one pound for us, but followed the rest of the recipe to have a fair amount of beans for a side dish. She also says you can make this in a slow cooker.
- 2 lbs kielbasa, cut into 1/2 inch slices
- 2 (15 ounce) cans great northern beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
- 1⁄2 large Spanish onion, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup molasses
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 3 -4 garlic cloves, minced
- Heat oven to 350°.
- Grease a 3 quart casserole dish.
- Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
- Pour into prepared pan, cover and bake for 1 hour.
This was great and so easy! I did make some modifications, but I believe I didn't compromise the intention of the recipe. I only used 1 lb. of kielbasa and substituted the crushed tomatoes with a 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes with peppers and celery. I also used diced onions with diced green peppers. I'm glad I didn't use the crushed tomatoes because casserole had plenty of liquid! I served this over rice and everyone loved it! I will definitely be making this again1
Simply delicious! the flavor is excellent and ease of prep gives it 10 stars! Next time, I would add 1-2 tablespoons of dry mustard for a little extra spice--or add red pepper flakes. I will make this one again and again. Thanks for posting!
My husband went crazy over this! the sauce is so sweet and tangy. I made this as written, but only used 1 lb of (reduced fat) keilbasa. I cut it really thin so it seemed like more. This would be a great dish for a picnic. Thanx for sharing!
