    Recipe Introduction

    These was amazingly easy and good! You get a rich, saucy dish that is tangy and sweet at the same time. Instead of boiling the sausage and onions I sauteed them in a little oil and then just dumped everything else in using an oven-proof Dutch oven. I didn't want to lose the flavor of the kielbasa and love what sauteed onions add to one dish meals. I also added some thyme and garlic.

    List of Ingredients

    1 lb. fully cooked kielbasa or Polish sausage, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 c. catsup
    3/4 c. packed brown sugar
    1/2 c. sugar
    2 T. vinegar
    2 T. molasses
    2 T. prepared mustard
    3 cans (15.5 oz. each) great northern beans, rinse and drained


    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

    In an oven-proof Dutch oven, bring the kielbasa and onions to a boil with water to cover and boil for 2 minutes. Drain. Put the remaining ingredients in the Dutch oven with the kielbasa and onions. Mix well. Cover and bake for 1 1/2 hours until the mixture reaches the desired thickness.

    Serves 8-10.

    NOTE: Can also be prepared in a Crock Pot. Prepare up to baking and place in Crock Pot on LOW and heat for 6-8 hours.
