Recipe of the day

In between visiting my kids and grandkids, I work, go to church, read, dance with Kevin, and make baked beans. There is a chance that I do more then just these few things, but I can't think of what that might be. Here is my favorite baked beans recipe.

Old Settler’s Baked Beans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

½ LB sliced bacon, cut into small pieces. (I use precooked bacon)
1 onion chopped
1 (15 oz) can of red kidney beans
1 (15 oz) can of black beans
1 15 oz) can of navy beans
1 (28 oz) can of baked beans
¼ cup of packed brown sugar
¼ cup of granulated sugar
¼ cup ketchup
¼ cup barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
2 tablespoons molasses
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp chili powder

Lightly grease a 4 quart baking dish. Fry the bacon until crisp and then sauté the onion in the bacon grease. Remove from the pan and drain. (I completely skip this last part because I’m using precooked bacon and the onion seems to do just fine without being sautéed) Combine all the ingredients and stir well. Turn into the prepared dish. Cover and bake for 1 hour.

I hope you enjoy!
