Graduation Beans

Why are they called "Graduation Beans" ?? I think because my Aunt Marilyn made them for my Uncle Carl's high school graduation back in 19-whatever, and they've been called that ever since. Of course any time someone "graduates" from a school we serve them--and believe me, these beans make school worth taking!

  • 2 lbs hamburger
  • 1 onion
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup catsup
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 5 Tbs molasses
  • 4 Tbs mustard
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 can pork and beans
  • 1 can lima beans (I usually leave these out and substitute black beans)
  • 1 can red beans
  • 1 lb bacon, fried and drained


Brown hamburger and onion, fry bacon and drain. Combine all ingredients in a crock pot and cook for several hours. You're done!


Y'know, you can make your own "catsup" right? And your own barbecue sauce, right? And you can use real beans instead of canned beans, right? RIGHT? :)
