Found this recipe years OK in a Pfaltzgraff book and it's one thing I make that every one in the family LOVES and always request. There are a lot of ingredients but don't let it stop you, they are great. There are several similar recipes here already but all are just a little different. The added sausage and liquid smoke makes a yummy difference. Always a big hit at barbecues. It makes a lot so great for those family summer gatherings. Edited in response to Brenda's review - I checked the recipe and it doesn't remark on draining the beans - but I do it the same way, drain all but the pork & beans and it seems to be perfect.
- 1⁄2 lb bacon, chopped
- 1⁄2 lb hamburger
- 1⁄4 lb smoked sausage (sliced & halved)
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄3 cup white sugar
- 1⁄4 cup catsup
- 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 (14 ounce) cans pork and beans
- 1 (14 ounce) kidney beans
- 1 (14 ounce) can baby butter beans
- Brown bacon, onions, hamburger and sausage.
- Drain grease.
- Mix sugar, catsup, smoke, dry mustard, salt, pepper and add to meat.
- Combine beans in large oven safe pot (I use a bean pot) and cover.
- Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
Great dish. Could use it as an entire meal but served with burgers.
Very good! I did cut back a bit on the sugar and it was the perfect sweetness for us. I wasn't sure if I was to drain the canned beans so I drained and rinsed the Kidney and Baby Butterbeans. The pork & Beans I added without draining and I felt the dish had the perfect consistancy. I used a nice piece of Kielbasa for the sausage. I thought they tasted even better the next day. Thanks for sharing.
I made this for a family dinner and it was good but a bit to sweet for us. Used turkey bacon, ground round, and Bush's baked beans. Definitely comfort food and does make a lot so a large family would do well with this. Made and reviewed for PAC 2007...thank you Bonnie!
