I have been debating weather or not to share this recipe for a while. It is an old family recipe, passed down through the ages. When I say, “trough the ages,” I mean that it was my Grandma Sally’s recipe. I know some people regard family recipes as great secrets, never to be shared with anyone, but really, this recipe is too good not to share. Our family has made these beans for every family get together my entire life. Everyone asks for this recipe, and since I’m a giver… well, I’ll give it to you.
Old Settler’s Beans

1 lb. hamburger
1 lg. onion, diced
Add: 1 15oz can butter beans, undrained
1 15oz can kidney beans, undrained

Mix together and add:
1/3 c. brown sugar1/3 c. white sugar1/4 c. ketchup1/2 tsp. dry mustard2 Tbsp. molassesDash Worcestershire sauce

Seriously, this is the best baked bean recipe, EVER. Even if you think you won’t like it, you should try it anyway.
