Portuguese Baked Beans
1 pound Navy white pea beans
3/4 to 1 pound linguica; Portuguese sausage
1/2 pound bacon, cut up small
16 oz. can tomatoes
1 large onion
salt and pepper to taste
Soak beans overnight. Boil them the next day for 1 hour.
Chop onions, tomatoes and linguica into small pieces. After the beans are boiled drain and save the water.
Mix in large bowl the beans, linguica, onions, tomatoes, salt, pepper and bacon. Save a couple of strips of bacon for the top later on.
Put all this in a heavy metal pot or bean pot. Pour enough of the reserved bean water to cover the mixture.
Bake in a 350° F oven for 2 hours covered and then 1/2 hour uncovered. Add more bean water if needed.
