Southern comfort food at its finest. Let this cook in the crockpot all day and serve up with some cornbread. This recipe can be cooked on the stovetop and the liquid can be cut back to make it thicker and less soupy. I dreamed this up one cool day when I was hankering for some good beans and sausage.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all in crockpot and mix to combine.
  2. Cook on low 8 hours or on high 4-5 hours, till hot and flavors meld.
  3. Serve with corn bread and hot sauce.
  4. Note: Beans are added without draining. Omit broth or some of the liquid from beans to make thicker and less soup-like.

awesome! I've made it twice now. The liquid smoke really helps!

My husband gave this a double thumbs up. Said it was a man's meal. My four kids gave it high praise, as well. I did make a few changes due to lack of ingredients. I used dried great northern beans and increased the fluid and cook time. I also used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. I didn't have liquid smoke, so left that out. I added a pinch of red pepper in place of hot sauce. In spite of the changes, it was still delicious. Will be adding this to my rotation of recipes. Thanks for sharing!
