Crock Pot Baked Beans

Nothing hollers "SUMMER!!!!" like a baked bean.  And a peeling chest (eww).  And the air being down so low that you have to get under a blanket when you lay on your couch(ahhhhh).  

I'm here today to tell you about a simple little crock pot baked bean that you can take with you to your Memorial Day gathering tomorrow.  Or today, if it's starting late.  Or if you live anywhere near me, you can just come get some of mine.  Because it makes a lot.  Like, a whole lot.  

My crock pot is getting a little skanky...

Crock Pot Baked Beans

14 oz smoked turkey sausage, sliced into small pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
cooking spray
1 cup of ketchup
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 tbl apple cider vinegar
2 tbl molasses
2 tbl mustard
1/4 cup spicy BBQ sauce
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed

In a medium skillet sprayed with cooking spray, cook sausage over medium heat for about 6 minutes. Remove sausage from heat, set aside.  In the same skillet, cook onions until soft. 

While sausage and onions are cooking, combine the remainder of the ingredients, excluding the pinto beans. 

Spray crock pot with cooking spray.  Add sausage, onions, sauce, beans to the crock pot.  Stir to combine.  Cook on high for four hours.  

Serving size 1/2 cup (makes about 14 servings)
Points plus 6

Happy Memorial Day weekend friends!!
