This recipe has been a favorite for 30 years. Great at picnics as a side dish, where the guys gave it it's nickname (Blame the Dog). Serve this alone as a main dish with coleslaw and crusty rolls, or as a side dish.

  • Combine sausages, baked beans, kidney beans, tomato sauce, ketchup, red wine, onion, celery, garlic, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce in a 3-quart baking dish. Bake in preheated oven until hot and bubbly, about 1 hour.

Cook's Note

This recipe may also be cooked on High for 4 hours in a slow cooker. You may need to spoon off some of the excess liquid from time to time.

This is great for potluck suppers, and can really stretch a meal. Sometimes I even cut up a few hot dogs and add them in.

Excellent! I added 1/2# of bacon and browned the sausage and vegetables in about a T of the bacon grease. Will definitely make again. Read More

Brown the sausages in oven=proof skillet; add remaining ingredients and put right into oven. Remember to leave this uncovered; the point is to thicken the sauce to be more like a gummy paste; sounds gross but tastes very good. I would make again but my husband does not like baked beans any way you fix them. Read More

I added a bit of diced jalapeno to give it a kick. Skipped the celery, just didn't seem to fit. Super, the kids really liked it! Read More

DH liked this one. I liked it okay. The kids ate it but didn't rave over it. I might have over dashed the W.shire. I will make it again though. Maybe used diced tomatos rather than sauce. Thank you for sharing it. Read More

I doubled the onion and left out the celery and used liquid smoke instead of worcestershire since that's all I had. It had a lot of flavor and only took a few minutes to assemble. Read More

This was good. I liked the wine in it. It's a grown up beans and weenies :) Honestly wasn't a fan of the kidney beans in this but that was just me. And I forgot the celery :S Oops. I cooked this on the stove not in the oven. So I added 2T butter to brown the sausage and cook the onion in. Then added everything else and just let it simmer on the stove until it thickened up. :) Read More

I adapted this a bit since neither my husband or I liked ketchup and I didn't have canned baked beans on hand. I used barbecue sauce and all navy beans which I cooked up from scratch. Was tasty served with a side of garlic bread. Read More
