Dutch's Baked Beans variation

  1. I tried his baked beans awhile ago and was very impressed.The last time I was preparing them i was short a few ingredients and improvised with some tasty results..Firstly, i was a bit short on bacon, so i said I added 4 links of spicy Italian sausage (chopped of course). Also, i went a little heavier on the peppers and habanjero ( i looove heat). Though it wasn't a major deviation it came out notably different than the original. Next time i serve a large group i plan on preparing the original and my spicier variant. (variety is what life's all about eh?)...Oh BTW cooking times are the same unless you want the italian sausage to have a crumblier texture (in which case cook for 45 min longer)

    You will find that there are a lot of varied recipes for Dutch's beans here on the forum. We don't all have the same taste, and folks here love it when some on comes up with a new twist to add flavor to food. As you read through the forum you will find that folks here love to be creative and try new things.

    It always seems to center on that one recipe, tho. That's the center of the smoked bean universe...oh boy[​IMG]

    As I have mentioned elsewhere here, I used Mango instead of pineapple also leftover pulled beef or pork is great in it as well.

    I use smoked rib skirt meat in mine, that really adds a nice flavor. Plus, I use pineapple slices chunked up, reserving 3 whole slices to lay on top of the beans for "presentation"...

    When I do the wicked beans, I use a whole one pound package of bacon instead of a few pieces[​IMG]

    I sometimes add pork or brisket, but I always add sliced hot links.
    I've been workn on my bean recipe for nearly 20 years, and I can't remember ever even once measuring anything.[​IMG]
