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!

Ingredients:
  • 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

Directions:

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

Variations:

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? :)
