Michigan Beans and Sausage Casserole Recipe

I got this recipe from a church cookbook years ago. Bean casseroles are a big hit at potlucks and picnics.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1-1/2 hours YIELD:14-16 servings


  • 1 pound smoked kielbasa or smoked Polish sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 3 cans (15-1/2 ounces each) great northern beans, rinsed and drained


  • 1. In a large saucepan, cook sausage and onion in boiling water for 2 minutes; drain. In a large bowl, combine the ketchup, sugars, vinegar, molasses and mustard. Stir in beans and sausage mixture.
  • 2. Transfer to a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 1-1/2 hours or until bean mixture reaches desired thickness. Yield: 14-16 servings.

Recipe Note

Editor's Note: This recipe can also be prepared in a slow cooker. Prepare as directed, transferring to a slow cooker instead of a baking dish. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until heated through.

"This was very good. The only thing I would change is cutting down the brown sugar to 1/2 cup and the sugar to 1/4 cup. It was a bit too sweet."

"This recipe would have been ok if the beans would have remained intact. They just turned to mush. It was still ok but I won't make it again."
