My mom made this recipe up over 40 years ago and it is now a favorite of our whole family. My sister even makes cold sandwiches out of the leftovers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large skillet, brown the ground beef and onion together over medium high heat(no oil is needed).
  2. Drain the meat and place back into skillet.
  3. Add bacon, beans, molasses, brown sugar and salt and pepper to the meat mixture and cook over medium heat until heated thoroughly (about 10 minutes), stirring often.
  4. Serve over hamburger buns / sandwich buns (I like mine toasted a bit for added texture).

This is very good and very filling. It is so easy to make, which is good on a busy weeknight. My family enjoyed it a lot.
