Total Calories: 489


1 pound bacon, diced
1 pound ground beef
1 pound hot ground pork sausage
1 cup onion, chopped
1 (28-ounce) can pork & beans
1 (15-ounce) can ranch-style beans
1 (15-ounce) can maple-flavored baked beans
1 (16-ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup catsup
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon mustard
2 tablespoons molasses
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder


In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon, beef, sausage and onion until meat is browned; drain. Transfer to a greased disposable aluminum roasting pan. Stir in beans; mix well. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients; stir into bean mixture. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes.

Tip: Reunions can be held just about anywhere…a park, backyard, barn or at the lake. Have plenty of tables and chairs on hand, hang the “Welcome!” sign, then get to the fun of decorating! Hang colorful banners and buntings, or drape cotton fabric from the trees for a simple awning.
