Easy Five Dollar Meal Aka Sausage With Beans

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

This is a favorite "cheap" meal in our family! It feels so good on a cold day. It tastes great reheated and my co-workers drool when I make it. I love to use the fresh garlic (it looks like an onion) from the farmers market, but you can substitute powdered garlic if in a hurry.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown sausage in olive oil. Add the onion, bell pepper and garlic towards the end of the browning. Add beans and barbecue sauce. Mix and heat thoroughly.

We really enjoyed this. My husband did insist on my adding a little bacon, 4 slices cooked and crumbled. We also added a few drops of liquid smoke. Thanks for the recipe!

I opted to make this in my crockpot, as I needed dinner to be ready when I got home. This was really good! DH & 2 DS's gave it the thumbs up! This would be perfect for a BBQ, too. Thanks for posting!
