  • 1 16 oz can Boston baked beans
  • ½ lb bulk pork sausage cooked and crumbled, fat drained
  • ¼ cup barbecue sauce of choice
  • ½ cup extra stout beer
  • ¼ cup finely diced onion
  • ½ Tbsp dried ground mustard
  • 1 28 oz bag tater tots
  • 8 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced green onion


  • In a medium saucepan, combine the beans, sausage, barbecue sauce, beer, onion, and ground mustard. Simmer, stirring regularly, over medium-low heat for ~45 minutes until well thickened (alternatively, this can be done in a slow cooker for 4 hours on low heat).
  • While beans are cooking, cook the tater tots according to package directions. Alternatively, I cooked mine at 400F for 15 minutes in an air fryer.
  • To serve, layer tater tots, bean-sausage mixture, and cheese on a serving plate. Place under a heated broiler for ~1 minute to melt the cheese if needed. Top with green onion and serve. Yields: 6 servings.


When I made this recipe, I used mini tater tots because I find they cook better in the air fryer. Regular tater tots work just as well for this recipe.
