Directions:
Fry the ground beef, bacon and onion until ground beef looses color. If using ham, add after ground beef is cooked. Drain off fat. Stir all the rest of the ingredients into meat mixture. Place in 3 quart casserole or large deep pan. Bake about 40 minutes at 350 degrees or until bubbly. I cook mine in a crock pot on low for a couple hours.
