Cowboy Baked Beans

Difficulty: * A great recipe to make with kids

Ingredients: (makes 4 servings)

1 large onion
1/2 lb. Italian sausage
1/2 lb. bacon
15 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1 lb. canned or cooked beans, great northern, pinto and red kidney beans
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
a pinch of salt and pepper

1. Peel the onion and slice it finely. Cut the bacon into small cubes. Cut the sausage into chunky slices.

2. Pour the beans into a colander and drain them well.

3. Heat the oil in the saucepan. Cook the onion, bacon and sausage together until the onion is golden and soft.

4. Add the crushed tomatoes, brown sugar, and mustard and stir. Heat the sauce until it begins to bubble.

5. Turn down the heat and let the sauce simmer for about a half an hour. Stir it now and then to make sure it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.

6. Add the drained beans to the sauce and stir everything well. Cook for a few more minutes until the beans are hot.

Serve the bean bake with chunks of bread to help mop up any leftover sauce.
