This dish is one of those ugly-but-delicious recipes that so many people associate with slow cooker meals, and although it may not be overly colorful, this recipe for Slow Cooker Sausage, Greens, and Beans from Kalyn’s Kitchen is one of my all-time favorite slow cooker recipes. I start with soaked, dried beans that I cook on the stove (substitute one can of beans if you prefer.) Put the barely cooked beans into the slow cooker with a little bit of cooking water, well-browned sausage, and collard greens, or other greens of your choice. Cook for a few hours on high or a little longer on low and you’ll have a delicious meal that only gets better if it’s reheated as leftovers!
Ingredients for this CrockPot Recipe:
- Fresh-cooked or canned beans
