This makes a HUGE POT of BEANS perfect for group dinners! I came up with this for our church youth group after a western theme activity & the kids LOVED IT ! Make up the whole batch for your large group or cut in half for about 10 servings .
2 LBS of Ground Beef ( I use Turkey Burger)
2 Large Onions Peeled & Chopped
2. 40 OZ Cans of Baked Beans in Tomato Sauce
4 Large White Potatoes Peeled & Diced
6 Pieces Bacon cooked crisp
1/4 Cup Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 Cup Yellow Prepared Mustard
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Cups Ketchup
1/4 to 1/2 TSP Red Pepper
Brown burger with the onions, if using beef drain after browning , if using turkey burger brown in 2 TBS oil & do not drain. Add remaining ingredients & cook in any of the following methods. Continue on top of the stove cooking over medium heat until thick & potatoes are soft about 1 & 1/2 hours. stirring every 10 minutes to prevent sticking. Or bake in a 350 degree oven about 1 & 1/2 hours or until potatoes are soft. Or put everything in the crock-pot & cook on low about 8 hours or about 5 hours on high! I prefer the crock-pot method only because it is turn it on & forget about it cooking ! These all taste great and have a spicy yet sweet thing going on, just use the cooking method that works best for you ! DIG IN these are GOOD ! REALLY GOOD with my cornbread that is on this Blog ! For Cornbread recipe just go to my November 2011 archive!
