BBQ Baked Beans & Sausage
Here we turn baked beans into an easy main dish by adding chicken sausage and collard greens. Serve with: Coleslaw and cornbread.

1/2 cup prepared barbecue sauce, (see Shopping Tip)
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 cup water
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons tomato paste
4 cups chopped collard greens, (about 10 ounces), tough stems removed
1 tablespoon molasses 9 ounces cooked chicken sausage links, (about 3 links), halved lengthwise and sliced
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 15-ounce cans great northern or navy beans, rinsed (see Note)
Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Yield: 4 Servings

2. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and collard greens and cook, stirring occasionally, until the collards are wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Add sausage and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, about 3 minutes more.
3. Reduce heat to medium-low; add beans and the sauce mixture to the pan. Gently stir to combine, cover and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes.
