Calico Baked Beans

The perfect accompaniment to burgers and bbq is my favorite baked beans. This recipe comes from Elina and can be served as a main dish or as a side. As I usually make it as a side dish, I freeze half of it so it will be ready to take out next time you have a barbeque.

Calico Baked Beans

1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 (28 oz) can baked beans
1 (16 oz) can kidney beans
1 (16 oz) can butter beans, drained
1 cup ketchup (we use gluten-free ketchup)
1 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp vinegar
6-8 slices bacon

Brown ground beef and drain fat. Combine all ingredients except bacon and place in baking dish. Cook bacon until crisp and chop into pieces. Sprinkle over beans. Bake at 350 for about one hour or until desired consistency.
