Slow Cooked Beans & Jennie-O Smoked Turkey Kielbasa

Disclosure:  As a member of the Jennie-O Switch Circle, I receive products throughout the year in exchange for honest reviews.  All opinions are 100% my own.


Happy 1st day of Autumn, I hope you have smoothly transitioned back into the back to school routine.  Whether you have kids or grandkids in school or college or if you are just back on the road with the school buses, I hope all is well.


As I write this post, you would have thought it was mid-October and not the end of the summer because of the cooler weather.  However, the one thing that I did miss during the warmer, longer days of summer were the heart healthy meals that I prepare in the Crock Pot in the fall.


Thanks to Jennie-O, who in my opinion has some amazing products including Turkey Burgers and Turkey Tenderloins and of course this lean Smoked Turkey Kielbasa (sausage) which is perfect for the slow cooker.


Jennie-O Smoked Turkey Sausage

Whether you soak your beans overnight or just rinse and drop them into a Crock Pot with a container of Vegetable Broth and a diced onion and garlic, this is definitely a satisfying meal for the entire family.




  • Bag of Dried Beans (soaked overnight if you want to cook them in less time)
  • Package of Jennie-O Smoked Turkey Kielbasa Sausage, diced and added to the Crock Pot an hour before beans are done
  • Medium onion – diced
  • 1 Clove of Garlic – diced
  • Container of Vegetable Broth

    Back in the Brooklyn days, there was Puerto-Rican spots off of Atlantic Avenue & Grant avenue in the East New York section of Brooklyn like going towards Crown Heights and Brownsville. They cooked delicious Spanish Yellow rice and beans with Pasteles, Pork, and really made the food memorable. This post reminded me I need to take a spontaneous trip to Brooklyn in the future to re-up on some good Spanish food and stock up on Pork and Chicken Pasteles. 🙂

    I’m looking to take advantage of the slow cooker more and more and I plan to try this right here. Sounds like it was divine!

      Hello my friend, hope all is going well on your side of the world. I love the Crock Pot because it can be used to make some amazing soups as well, another great thing about Autumn!!

    Yum, this recipe looks delicious! And, I like the fact you’re using turkey sausage. I need to get myself a new crock pot, so I can fire it up this fall and winter.

      You said that last year, I can’t wait for you to get a Crock Pot because it will free you up from cooking every evening for the girls and Mr. M. Tomorrow I am making beef stew with potatoes and carrots.

    I love slow cooked meals. One of the reasons I’m glad fall is here I can now put my crock pot to good use.
