Baked Beans Recipe

The first July 4th after we were married, John and I were invited to a pot luck barbecue with other graduate students. One of the dishes was an incredible pork and beans casserole. I asked for the recipe and was surprised at how easy it was to make. I have made several changes over the years and refined it and it has been part of our holiday barbecue ever since. This year since we are beginning to gather again, I want to share it with you.

Jinny’s Baked Beans recipe

2 Large cans Campbell’s pork and beans (28oz)

1 can Campbell’s cream of tomato soup

¼ cup brown sugar

1 lb. “hot” Jimmy Dean or Bob Evans pork sausage

2 crisp apples, peeled and cut into bite size chunks

Sauté the sausage and drain excess fat. Put all ingredients in a covered crock and stir together to mix.

Bake in a 250 degree oven for four hours. Remove lid during last half hour. Let sit for 30 minutes before serving.

  1. Thank you,I will try it.

    1. That looks yummy!

  2. That’s a recipe we’ll love for sure! We’re celebrating my husband’s 70th Fourth of July birthday tomorrow with an open house. It sort of feels like we’re all coming out of a long pandemic-induced hibernation, so thankful for the vaccines. Thank you, Jinny, for all you do to inspire and teach quilters everywhere.

  3. Thanks, Jinny. Delicious beans. There were only 2 of us for a mini-feast (greetings from David Xenakis who remembers what a good student of Illustrator, I think, you were). Even better warmed up on 7-5 and now a portion of the left-overs are joining beet greens and chard in a beans-and-greens soup.

  4. I wonder if this could be done in a slow cooker.

  5. Thank you for the recipe. I love to collect recipes along with fabric! I am a long time fan of yours. I have made Moonglow and am
    Now working on New Moon. I bought the kits years ago and am now finally getting the time to sew them. Thank you for sharing your talents !
