This was very good but a little too sweet. I loved the way the sausage was just melt in your mouth. We ate it over white rice, it was an amzing dish.

Oh my!! These beans were VERY VERY good! I was apprehensive about them being too sweet, so the only adjustment I made, was I used 1/2 the amount of white sugar. Now, they're still a tad sweet, but we like ours like that! The smell as they were in the crock pot ... I was getting a rumbly tummy waiting for them to be done! *LOL* Definitely a big hit at our house and I'll be making these alot this summer!!! Thanks so much for posting the recipe!

To me this recipe was too sweet. If I make it again, I think I'll leave out the white sugar.
