It is barbeque season, and with the holiday coming up there will be some big gatherings around the grill. Here is a side dish that qualifies as a crowd pleaser- it is easy to make, and serves 20 to 24. Tip: If you are using a barbeque sauce on the meat you are grilling, save some for in the beans, so the flavors compliment each other!
1 pound Ground Beef 4 tablespoons Yellow Mustard 1 pound Bacon 4 tablespoons Molasses 1 Onion, chopped 1 tablespoon chili powder ½ cup Catsup 1 teaspoon Black Pepper ½ cup Barbeque Sauce 2- 16 ounce cans each: 1 teaspoon Salt Red Kidney Beans Pork & Beans Butter Beans
Brown the beef, bacon, and onion- drain the excess fat. Combine the ingredients in a casserole and bake at 350° until bubbly- about 1 hour. (This can be done in a crock pot also- cook on high for about 5 hours.)
Serves 20 – 24
