Old Settler’s Baked Beans
I wanted another side for the 4th of July picnic and I needed to fix it quickly. I put all the ingredients in a cast iron skillet and brought it up to a boil to give it a head start and then I stuck it in the oven. It took about half the time. Really, really good. You can use any beans that you have on hand.
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1/4 pound bacon, cut up (I used bacon bits)
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 can red kidney beans
- 1 can butter beans
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1/2 teaspoon mustard (no dry)
- 2 tablespoons molasses
Brown beef, bacon and onion. Mix all ingredients and put in casserole dish. Heat uncovered one hour or more, as desired, at 350 degrees. Can be made ahead of time.
