Johnson Baked Beans

Do you have your 4th of July festivities planned yet? Are you looking for the perfect side dish to go with your BBQ feast? I have one for you. This one is a classic in my family - Johnson Baked Beans. I love them hot from the oven for dinner, or cold with lunch the next day (if there are any left!) The recipe is also flexible. Don't have butter beans? Add another can of kidney beans or a small can of pork & beans, or a can of navy beans or....well - you get the idea.

Johnson Baked Beans

1/2 lb bacon, cooked & diced
1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 (15 oz) can Butter Beans
1 (15 oz) can Kidney Beans
1 large can Pork & Beans
1/4 c. ketchup
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 Tablespoons vinegar
1 Tablespoon prepared mustard

Cook bacon (I prefer the oven). Let it cool, then crumble into small to medium sized pieces.

In a large skillet, brown ground beef. Add onions and saute with beef until softened. Add all ingredients to a large dutch oven (or other baking dish is fine). Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
