Favorite Ingreditents Friday - Memorial Day Edition

Calico Beans

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 pkg. bacon (1 lb) -- use turkey for lower fat
1 medium onion, chopped

Brown above and then mix together:

1 large can pork and beans
2 cans of dark kidney beans

Mix these ingredients together:

1 c. ketchup
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 T. dry mustard
1 t. vinegar

After browning the meat and onion, mix all ingredients together and cook slowly until heated through or put on low in a slow cooker.

These beans are probably not the healthiest as far as sugar content -- but they are really, really good!

I personally will say this is the best pasta I have ever eaten. Just like her bagels, and many other yummy recipes, I get to try and enjoy. I love it when you make this, hint hint!!

I would think it could be done with turkey burger & the turkey bacon?? Looks like something to share with my sister & her family when they visit!

Oh wow, my dad used to make this for us as kids! I'd forgotten about that until now. I'm printing this one out.

Thanks so much for participating in my Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange. I do appreciate it.

I hope to see you again next Friday!
