I'm not sure of the origin of this recipe's name. But we ate this inexpensive meal frequently while I was growing up.—Cary Letsche, Brandenton, Florida
- 1/2 pound sliced bacon
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 can (32 ounces) pork and beans
- In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain; crumble and set aside. Drain drippings from skillet. Brown the beef; drain. Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Combine ketchup and brown sugar; stir into beef mixture. Stir in pork and beans and all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon. Transfer to an 8-in. square baking dish. Top with the remaining bacon. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour. Yield: 6-8 servings.
