Now you can't get a better than this dish. Beans, bacon and sausage! Wonderful. All of the flavors work well together. The beans and meat make this a hearty, filling dish. Excellent, Nez! This one is in my T&T book for many repeats! Thanks for posting it for me!

Quite tasty! I doubled the recipe, and used 1.5 lbs of polish sausage. I did use a little bit more bacon to make up for the flavor loss. Had to sub thyme for the marjoram, it would have been even better with the marjoram. My youngest didn't love this dish, but everyone ate it. Very filling, and warm on this chilly day.
