This is my favorite way to make baked beans. They can be made in a crock pot, in a skillet, or even in a dutch oven. I use smoked Italian sausage, but other types of smoked sausage can be used as well.


  1. Brown the Italian sausage and onion in a skillet.
  2. Put all ingredients including the browned sausage and onion into the crock pot and heat until hot (about 1 hour, depending on your crock pot).
  3. If you are in a hurry, the beans, pepper, and bbq sauce can be added to the skillet and heated. If you are camping, this can be heated in a dutch oven.
