Baked Beans

So, my FAVE fourth of July fare starts with these baked beans. Yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy. My husband, Brandon's cousin's wife gave me this recipe. Absolutely supurb! Luckily I got it before they moved off to the middle of the USA. Try this one. It is good in either a crockpot or the oven. Either way, it is sure to become a staple at all your barbeque functions!

Baked Beans (of superb greatness...)

½ pound ground beef
½ pound bacon, chopped
1 medium onion, minced
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
16-oz can red kidney beans, drained
16-oz can pork and beans, drained
15-oz. can butter beans
¼ cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
¼ cup barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon prepared mustard

Brown meats and onion in skillet. Drain. Add salt, pepper, and beans. Stir in remaining ingredients. Mix well. Pour into slow cooker. Cover and cook on high 4-5 hours. You can cook these for 2 hours in the oven.

Funny thing, I always think these have sausage in them so I always brown-up 1/2 lb of sausage and dump it in the crockpot and then look at the recipe and go whoops. Always. But they always turn out great so I go with it. Double the meat I guess.
