High Plains Outdoors: Tasty Recipe For Canned Beans And Sausages

Mar 16, 2018

Join Luke at the campfire in front of his cabin this week and learn one of his simple, but very tasty camp recipes.

We don't always have a lot of time for cooking on fishing or hunting camps, but this tasty recipe takes canned beans and sausages to the next level!

Begin by slicing a few strips of bacon and frying them in a cast iron skillet over the campfire coals. Throw in a handful of chopped onion and dice up several fresh garlic pods and a jalapeno or two. Toss in a handful of dark brown sugar.  Now, open a small (or large) can of pork and beans, depending upon the amount of people eating, spoon them into the skillet and pour in a little water. Place a few sausages, Bratwurst or Kielbasa on the grill and allow the beans to simmer until the onion is thoroughly cooked.

The smoke from the campfire adds to the flavor of the seasoned beans. When the sausages are done, you have two options, cut them into small pieces and add to the beans or serve them on the side. The entire meal can be prepared on the campfire or camp stove in about 30 minutes.
