Red Beans and Rice

1 small bag of beans (kidney)
1 small onion-diced
4 stalk of celery-cut into small pieces
1 bell pepper--cut into small pieces
3 small pig feet or ham hock
1 package of salted pork (found in meat section)
1 package of cooked cubed ham (found in the refrigerator section of the meat section)
1 package of sausage.. I used the Hillshire Farm Pork (I wanted to use spicy but the kids won't be able to eat it)
1 stick of butter
2 T Tony Chachere's
1/2 T pepper
1/2 t garlic powder
*** hot sauce (optional)

***u can add 1T of dried parsley (optional)

Soak the beans (enough water to cover the beans) in the crockpot overnight.. The next morning .. Just drain the water out and refill the pot again. I usually try to cover the beans about 1 1/2 inches above the beans with water.
Put your pig feet, 3 bay leaf, 2 T of Tony Chachere's (or creole seasoning) ..1/2 T of pepper..1/2 t of garlic powder. Your chopped veggies (onion/bell pepper/celery) salted pork into the crockpot. Low for 8 hours. Right before you serve.. Put in the stick of butter *** secret recipe** ;)

About 30 minutes before serving. Cut the sausage into 1 inch thick and put in a frying pan on medium heat.. Cook in frying pan until you get a little brown n crusted on the ends. Serve on top of red beans and rice.

Ladle red beans over rice and lay sausage pieces on top...garnish with chopped green onion and parsley

Everything in crockpot

Pan fry sausage ...cut sausage in 1in pieces 

Right before putting the stick of butter in...
