Settler’s Beans

This recipe was used for a Lenten Luncheon at the YWCA in Dubuque. While opening the beans, I cut my finger on the lid of one of the cans. After finishing getting everything into the crock pot with my hand wrapped in a towel, I decided that maybe I should have someone look at my finger. I was right, needed stitches.

1/2 lb. bacon
1/2 lb. ground beef
1/4 C. white sugar
1/2 C. brown sugar
1/4 C. ketchup
1 onion, diced
1 tsp. dried mustard
1 can butter beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can pork and beans

Fry ground beef and drain well. Lightly cook bacon; drain. Drain most of the juice from the beans. Combine all ingredients and bake, uncovered, for 1 hour at 350°. Can be cooked in the crock pot for 4 to 5 hours.
