Dave's Kielbasa & Beans

My boyfriend likes to relax whilst cooking.
     The way to my heart, HUGE SURPRISE, is through my stomach. For the first time in my life, I have a real man of a man and he can FEED ME. This is one of my favorite go-to quick weeknight meals when I need yummies pronto. A tasty bonus is that the cost of this meal is low but the flavor content is high, high, HIGH! Four basic ingredients and roughly 45 minutes of your time is all it takes to make Dave's Kielbasa & Beans!

     You will need:

     Heat up a skillet and put in the pad of butter. Once the butter is almost sizzling, dump in the diced onion. Stir that onion around in the pan so the butter is everywhere. You want the onions to cook long enough so that they're clear and leaving an almost dry trail through the butter. The baked beans come next and you can just pour those right in and stir until the onions are thoroughly mixed in. If it seems like your beans are getting dry, add a half cup of water. The extra water will just burn off anyway.

     Stir those beans up every so often until they come to a nice simmer. Now you can add in your kielbasa and mix it in so it gets nice and coated in the beans and sauce. The kielbasa is already cooked, so all your really doing is heating it up in delicious bean juice so it takes on some of the flavors.

     In 15-20 minutes, you'll have a hot plate of Dave's Kielbasa & Beans! This recipe is great whether you want to serve it on a bun with mustard or straight up in a bowl so I can shovel it into my face as gracefully as I can.

Steamy, sensational, succulence!
      Here in Rhode Island we have Central Falls Provision kielbasa made RIGHT HERE!! It's literally made in the same state that we're eating it in. Very nice, very nice. Support your local businesses people! Not only that, the closer to home your food is made, the fresher you get it! Don't be jealous, be a smart shopper.

     Now you get a small taste of what I've been getting these last three years back home in Little Rhody (nobody calls it that). Just wait til you see what we make next!

This time, love,

Liz & Dave
