My toddler, who can be a picky eater, loved these!

My family loved these. They are quick and easy to make. The only thing I added is crushed red peppers to the sausage since my group likes most recipes a little spicy!! Worked well will make again...

Does not cook February 14, 2013

Let me start by saying I don't cook at all. I wanted to surprise my wife for Valentine's day so I tried this - she loved it. I forgot my list when I went to the store so I didn't get the english muffins. I used a wheat pizza crust that we had at home and cut it into heart shapes (Valentine's day surprise dinner). I used pepper jack cheese on mine and muenster on my wife's. She loved it and said I can cook for her any time. What did I get myself into?

I thought twice about making this recipe because I'm not a big fan of pork and beans. I don't like my beans sweet, however, the sausage balanced the sweetness out nicely. They were a breeze to prepare once I had the tomatoes, beans, and sausage mixed. The pepper Jack cheese was great, it added the right amount of spiciness for me. Next time I would like to add a vegetable, maybe some corn or green peppers. The kids were split, my younger said they were yummy, my elder said they were too spicy.

This sounds tasty July 19, 2012

My sons are so picky and won't eat hardly anything but I made this for them and they loved it. So easy to make and it's good for them
