Calico Beans

1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. bacon
1/2 C chopped onion
1/2 C catsup
1 t salt
1 t dry mustard
2 T brown sugar
1 can butter beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can pork-n-beans

Brown ground beef with chopped onions. Drain fat. Cook bacon till crunchy. Place on paper towel and pat dry. Crumble and add to beef and onions. Add catsup, salt, dry mustard, and brown sugar. Mix. Add all beans. Stir together and simmer for 1 hour. Stir occasionally.

***Healthier version: Use only 1/4 lb ground beef and 1/4 lb bacon. With substitutions, it makes 8 1/2 C servings at 232 calories each.
