This is one of my “go to” recipes for those colder days of fall and winter.
It’s kind of like comfort food – ya know, like a hug from childhood in a bowl?
SUPER easy to make and a great combo of flavors.
Start with half an onion, diced and 4-6 slices of bacon, diced.
Saute them in a pan – the bacon makes it’s own juices and helps caramelized the onion.
Then add a pound of ground beef or turkey. (I do half a pound of each)
Cook until it is no longer pink.
Add one can of baked beans, one can of butter beans, and one can of chili beans –
do NOT drain any of them.
Now, some seasoning…
1/4 cup ketchup, 1/3 cup brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon dry mustard.
If you don’t have dry, you use one TABLESPOON mustard (always 3x as much).
I used my whole grain here, but you can use yellow.
Stir it all together…
Pop into a 9×12 pan and bake at 350 for at least 30 minutes.
Dish it up – and rip in!
Grated cheese on top is optional…that is how Miss Sarah likes it.
