Calico Bean Casserole
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 45 min.
I did a google search for this calico beans recipe that my mom made when I was a child and of course found it at Taste of Home. My husband loves this slightly tangy recipe and the kids eat it right up. So delicious! The only change we make is using a full pound of ground beef rather than half a pound. We eat it as a main dish and add corn bread or crescent rolls on the side. This also works great in the crock pot.
Very delicious! My mother made this recipe and it has become a family favorite!
This is an old recipe and I have seen many variations. I don't put limas in mine. I also use bacon bits instead of bacon. It saves alot of time, and I increase the hamburgerto a pound to make more of a main dish. Ilike it less sweet so I use less sugar and more mustard etc. You play with it until you get it just right. This is by far my best recipe and Ialways get asked to bring it. A true winner!!!
I make this all the time ...it's one of my family favorites. I cahnge the kind of beans I use to pork and beans, black beans, pinto beans, northern beans etc. any kind of bean will do.
