Baked Beans with Sausage

I jumped into the DeLorean and turned the clock waaay back to July 4th, 1975 for these baked beans. Fleetwood Mac was hot, Bill Gates and Paul Allen had founded microsoft and American troops had evacuated Saigon.

America was suffering the effects of political turmoil over the Vietnam War, but we celebrated Independence Day with a gathering of friends and neighbors. It was the debut of this recipe for baked beans with sausage.

It’s on the menu again this 4th of July and we’re celebrating American Independence again. Because of that, pair sausage baked beans with some American beer. I personally recommend Miller High Life ponies, because they’re only seven ounces, they stay cold and it’s the champagne of beer!

While I was in that time machine I should have made some notes on the stock market. If I had, we might be dining on real steak instead of tube steak! Happy July 4th!
