Baked Beans

This is one of those recipes that I make just often enough to completely forget how I do it in between times! I got up this morning to make these for a potluck at work, and couldn't for the life of me remember what I put in them. I'm sure the fact that it was 5:30 a.m. and I hadn't had coffee yet had nothing to do with it!

I think I've got it now, though, so here you go - I'm writing it down so I don't forget again!

2 28-ounce cans Bush's Original Baked Beans, drained
1 pound bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup molasses
scant 1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup

Mix all ingredients together, pour in a 9x12 pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly.

Or...pour into a crockpot and cook on low for four to six hours.

My husband's family makes "Calico Beans," which has most of your ingredients, sans molasses, but uses pork & beans, butter beans, kidney beans, bacon, ground beef, and (this is the magic) kielbasa. It always gets raves!
