Hearty Slow-Cooker Recipe: This Easy Sausage & Beans Recipe Is Cornbread's Best Friend

Cornbread. That's all you'll need when you make this hearty sausage and beans recipe in your slow cooker. Trust me.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 7 to 8 hours
Total Time: 7 to 8 hours

Servings: 4 to 6


  • 1 - 1 1/2 pounds smoked sausage, cut into rounds
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 - 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bag (1 pound) pinto beans or white beans, rinsed well
  • 1 box (32 ounces) chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves or 1 teaspoon dried thyme

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Add the sausage to a skillet and brown on both sides. Remove to a slow cooker.
  2. To the same skillet, add the onion and garlic. Cook until onion begins to soften, about 3 minutes. Pour the onion and garlic into the slow cooker.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on high heat for about 7- to 8 hours or until beans are tender. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
