1 lb kidney beans
1-1/2 lbs Manda Spicy Hot Sausage
6 cups of water
1 tsp onion powder (if you don't have real onions)
Hot sauce, to taste
1 tsp Worchestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
2 bay leaves
Cajun seasonings, your choice
3 cups cooked rice
Soak beans overnight in crockpot (not turned on) in the 6 cups of water. When ready to cook, add all ingredients to crockpot. Cook on low for 8 hrs or high for 4-5 hrs. Add more water if needed. For thicker gravy (which I love) mash some beans & cook a bit longer. Stir occasionally.
*low for 7-8 hrs I add about 1/4-1/2 cup of extra water if I won't be stirring it or watching it.
It doesn't hurt anything if you cook it for longer. Just blends the seasonings in more
