Calico Bean Casserole What's For Dinner Saving Money Eating At Home

Last night hubby and I made Calico Bean Casserole and baked potatoes. We love to cook together. Makes everything go faster and easier. He washes the potatoes while I chop the onion and brown the hamburger. He opens the cans of beans while I measure out the ketchup and brown sugar. Dinner in the oven and we can just sit and wait for a delicious Valentines dinner at home

Calico Bean Casserole
1 pound of ground beef (I like 80 percent and then spoon out the grease)
1 small onion diced
1 can of baked beans
1 can of white beans ( drained)
1 can of kidney beans (drained)
1/2 cup of ketchup
1/2 cup of brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
( if I had had bacon in the house I would of browned a couple of pieces up and put that in also.)

Brown hamburger and onion then spoon out the grease.

In a casserole add beef mixture, beans

brown sugar and ketchup.

Mix all together

and bake in 350 oven for 40 to 60 minutes. We added some potatoes to bake along the casserole.

Tasty, comfy food and one of our favorites. I have not made this for about a year so we really enjoyed it.

I will be sharing this at the following sites during the week
