Italian Sausage works too, but you need to precook the sausage and drain greas e before adding to the beans . You can also add other beans and can stretch it by adding a fourth can of beans, especially butter beans or limas.

New Englanders serve baked beans and cottage cheese at breakfast with eggs. The beans are usually served cold. This makes a great cold accompaniment to a hearty breakfast or eaten as part of a hash with the eggs.
