- Add the breadcrumbs and cook, stirring often, until golden and crisp, 2 to 3 minutes.

I'm making a crock pot version today for dinner! Love this, using smoked pork chops instead of kielbasa. The bread crumbs and butter topping is wonderful and it makes beans all together different.notyourmomma in South St. Petersburg loved it
