Perfect for the first day of winter!
This is a popular recipe that can stand alone as a main dish! When I make it as a side dish, I reduce the ground beef to half or skip it if pairing with hamburgers.
1. lb. ground beef
½ lb. bacon, diced
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1/3 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. packed light brown sugar
1/4 c. ketchup
1/4 c. barbecue sauce
1 Tbsp. prepared yellow mustard
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 (15.5-oz.) can pork and beans, undrained
1 (15.5-oz.) can light red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15.5-oz.) can great northern beans, rinsed and drained
1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef, bacon and onion until meat is done and onion is translucent and tender. Drain.
2. Combine remainder of ingredients, except beans, in a bowl. Add to meat mixture and mix well.
3. Stir in beans.
4. Dump in a greased 2.5 quart baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° F for 1 hour. You may also slow cook this dish on low for 3 hours.
