Michele's Baked Beans

We had a potluck last Friday at work . . . just because Michele and Rachael wanted to.   How cool is that yah!   Michele's baked beans was super, super ono.  It's so awesome that she's always willing to share her recipes.

I forgot to get a close-up picture of the baked beans before we dug into it.

This is how it looked with all the gooey ono cheese still intact.

Here's Michele's recipe:

1/2 package bacon, 1/4 inch slices
1 pound hamburger
1 portugese sausage, chopped
3-4 hot dogs, chopped
1 round onion, diced

Fry bacon, add hamburger, sausage, and hot dogs, and then round onion.

Sauce:
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup ketchup
1 tsp Coleman's dry mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire

Mix above and add to meat mixture above along with 3 cans pork and beans and 1 can black beans (don't drain, use whole can).

Bake @ 350 for 45 minutes covered and then add cheddar cheese and broil for 5 minutes or until melted.


 

Another favorite which got wiped out was Yosh's Cream of Mushroom Soup

This wasn't really a part of the potluck, but I wanted to show you.  Michele had picked this up earlier from The Alley Bakery.  It was wonderful!!

Erick, the beans were so good. I regret that I was so full that I didn't eat too much.

question for the bean recipe: do you drain the fats after frying the meats/onion or keep it for the dish? everything looks yummy!
