Recipe by Sandys148
Easy, economical comfort meal. Easy to double, adapt and freezes well. Great to take to a friend's house for a party, new baby, or sick family member. My aunt gave me the recipe and I use it all the time. I have made it for a family reunion (30 people)and for our family. I have recently altered it for a vegetarian guest and I didn't miss the meat!

Mom made something like this when we were growing up. But back then I don't think she could get garbanzos here in Iowa, so she used lima beans. I used 1 tablespoon mustard, 2-3 tablespoons catsup, 1 tablespoon br. sugar and 2-3 tablespoons vinegar. Of course I HAD to use the 4 garlic cloves :) I adopted this chef for the *Spring PAC 2008* game
- 1 onion
- 1 -4 garlic clove
- 1⁄2-1 lb ground beef
- 1 (24 ounce) can baked beans (UNrinsed)
- 1 (12 ounce) can kidney beans (rinsed)
- 1 (12 ounce) can garbanzo beans (rinsed)
- brown sugar
- 1⁄2 lb cooked bacon, if desired
Directions See How It's Made
- Heat pan. Add olive oil and cook garlic and onion until opaque. Add ground beef and cook through.
- Add remaining ingredients to crock or baking pan. Remember to rinse the beans except for the baked beans. I never measure the catsup, mustard, brown sugar or vinegar, but I gave estimates.
- If baking, place in 350 oven until heated throughout ~ about 1 hour.
- If heating in crockpot, turn it on low and heat throughout ~ 1 to 1.5 hours.
- For the budget conscious, decrease meat and add a can of your favorite beans and/or serve over rice, rolls or biscuits to increase the amount of servings.
- Can be made for vegetarians. Don't add the ground beef and add cooked rice (1 cup uncooked)or pasta (8 oz). Make sure to get vegetarian baked beans.
