Chuckwagon Beans

I made these beans over the Memorial Day weekend. They are great for large family gatherings, pot-lucks and cookouts! This is very hearty; not mushy at all.  This dish could probably be made as a main dish with the additon of pork, beef, or some old-fashioned cut up hot dogs.  Enjoy! his makes 8 servings.

         lb ground beef, browned
         medium diced onion
½         lb bacon, cook crisp and save drippings
         16 ounce can great northern beans
         16 ounce can kidney beans
1          16 ounce can pork n' beans
½        cup brown sugar
½        cup white sugar
½        cup ketchup
½        tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
         tablespoon molasses
         dash Worcestershire sauce

2.  Brown ground beef with the diced onion.
3.  Place first 3 items in a large oven roaster (I use an Enamelware roaster).

5.  Mix all other ingredients together in a medium bowl.
6.  Pour over meat and beans and stir well.
7.  Bake at 350˚ for 1 hour covered.
8.  Remove lid or foil and bake for 20 more minutes.
