Conecuh sausage baked beans for a crowd makes hearty, savory, flavorful baked beans that will feed up to 30 people.
When feeding a crowd of hungry folks, nothing beats a barbecue. Whether grilling burgers and hot dogs or serving pulled pork or brisket, baked beans are a must. They are yummy and filling and go a long way in keeping folks satisfied.
The Conecuh sausage in these beans add huge hearty flavor, but other meats can also yield great results. Hot crumbled sausage, ground beef or ground Italian sausage would also make great beans.
This recipe makes enough beans to feed 25-30. You can adjust cooking time so that the beans can stay in the oven on low (250 degrees) all day or at a higher temp (400 degrees) for a few hours.
I used an extra large aluminum pan (read the many uses of these pans in this previous post) and just added ingredients to the pan as I prepped. There is no need to dirty any other bowls while making this, so clean up is a snap.
These beans will be moist after removing from oven and retain some of the liquid. As
they sit (or if left in the oven to keep warm), the liquid will absorb and beans will be drier. Either tastes great–moist or dry–so just adjust according to your preference.
