Rosemary's Old Settler Beans

submitted by Carolee Heim

Feature Recipe May 2010

Fry 8 slices bacon.  Brown 1 onion in grease.


1/3 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup white sugar

cup catsup

cup barbecue sauce

1 T mustard

tsp. Chili powder

tsp. Pepper

Liquid smoke (opt)


Next add:

1 can drained kidney beans

1 can butter of lima beans

2 (16oz) cans pork and beans  

Bake, uncovered at 250 degrees for 1 hour (yield 8 servings)

 Note: can be frozen before and after baking.

 When I had a house full of boys, I made this and they cleaned it up.  It's a good potluck dish, it is safe.  It is a good room temperature as hot.
