Aunt Kay’s Beans

Before baking:  Tastes almost as good 
I like this mixture of American and French Products

My sister requested this recipe.   I made this side dish for a barbecue during a family reunion; I think it was 1983 or 84.   I got the recipe from my husband’s aunt Kay.  Kay loved to cook and you could taste it.   Rest in peace Aunt Kay and thanks. 


1/2 lb bacon chopped
1/2 lb ground beef
1 large onion finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1 16 oz can of butter beans, drained
1 16 oz can of kidney beans, drained
1 16 oz can of pork n beans(do not drain)
1/2 cup of barbecue sauce
1/2 cup of ketchup
2 tbsp of chili powder
2 tbsp of brown sugar or 3 tbsp of molasses
2 tbsp of mustard
Salt and pepper to taste

Brown the bacon then remove from pan, drain on paper towels, then set aside   Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook until soft.    Add ground beef to the pan and cook just until all pink is gone.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together bacon, ground beef and onion mixture, beans, barbecue sauce, ketchup, chili powder, brown sugar and mustard.  Pour into a baking dish and bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.

Great with grilled meats!
