That's what I get for buying "Fall" items and cooking up some "Fall" grub. I made Hot Pockers which was my son's name for a dish that most people call a version of calico beans. This is my favorite crock pot meal and it makes the house smell wonderful!
1/2 to 1 lb of ground beef
3/4 lb bacon, cut in small pieces
1 C chopped onion
2 cans (1 lb 15 oz size) pork and beans
1 can (1 lb size) kidney beans, drained
1 C ketchup
1/4 C brown sugar
1 tbls liquid smoke
3 tbls white vinegar
1 tsp salt and dash of pepper
Brown the ground beef and bacon in a skillet and drain off fat. Place it in the crock pot with all the other ingredients and stir together well. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
This is good served with cornbread and a jello salad. It's very economical and also freezes well.
