Easy Sausage & Baked Beans
Whip up this fast & easy sausage & baked beans, which is perfect for weekdays dinner. The ingredients list is short & simple, consisting of canned foods, frozen sausages & pantry seasonings. I reserve this recipe for days where I need not go to the supermarket to buy fresh foods before making dinner. This dish is also quite cheap (unless one splurges on expensive gourmet sausages, which I did not). You can eat it with either with toasted bread or brown rice.

This is what the baked beans and sausage looks like, served straight from the pan.
Note: I’m cooking a small portion (2-3 pax) for one meal without intention for leftovers. Therefore I used half a can of baked beans and diced tomatoes in these pictures. To cook for more, use 1 can of baked beans & tomatoes each at a go and double up this recipe.
Brown some sausages in a pan with some olive oil. I used a mix of Beddar Cheddar (pork sausages with cheese) which are cut diagonally and Japanese Arabiki sausages (uncut). Both are my family’s favourites. Take out the sausages and set aside on a plate.
Add a bit more oil and a small knob of butter. Cook onions on low heat until softened.
Add canned baked beans and diced tomato. I also added cut chillis, hot mustard, tomato ketchup and garlic (either minced or in a paste form).
Add water and use a spatula to combine all the seasonings together. Mix well.
Return sausages back to the pan (pictured above). After this, simmer, covered, until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.
Take the pan off the heat, season with black pepper and garnish with basil &/or parsley. Enjoy!
