Ingredients:  
1 big can Bush's Pork n Beans (any kind you like)
1 can kidney beans
1 lb. ground meat
1 lb. bacon
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. ketchup
1 tbsp. mustard
1 tsp. vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1 onion (chopped)

Directions:
Directions:
Brown the ground meat, fry the bacon (although lately I've been using that pre-cooked/microwave stuff). After browning the ground meat, drain grease and throw chopped onions in there to cook until soft. Chop up the bacon and put it in, along with the rest of the ingredients and mix well. When I initially started doing this recipe I would put it in 13X9 casserole and bake at 350, covered, for 1 hour. However, I have learned I can leave everything in the pot and let it simmer, covered for at least 30 minutes and it's just as good and one step easier!

Personal Notes:
My favorite place to make this is at camp down Blind River. It is usually a HIT and we have no leftovers!! It's like Pork N Beans with a twist!
Oh..and most of the time I double the recipe by just doubling each ingredient. Works well!
