The slow cooker makes it easy to make a meal of butter beans and sausage. Use andouille sausage or other spicy smoked sausage in this delicious dish, and don't forget the cornbread. Here's a large photo of the recipe.

Cook Time: 8 hours

Total Time: 8 hours


  • 2 packages frozen butter beans, about 1 1/2 pounds
  • 12 to 16 ounces andouille sausage
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1 large bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning, or to taste


In a slow cooker, combine the speckled butter beans, sliced sausage, water, broth, bell pepper, and onion. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours. Add Creole seasoning and continue cooking for 2 hours longer, or until beans are tender.

Serve with cornbread for a delicious, comforting meal.
Serves 4 to 6.

If you want to try this recipe, I would recommend less liquid, maybe cut the water to 1 cup or less. While the amount of remaining fluid in the end product was excessive, the flavor of the dish left a lot to be desired. In conclusion: if cheap and edible is what you are looking for, go for it, if not, move on.
