Calico Beans is a comfort food for my husband,is an easy do ahead, and freezes very well.
4 slices of bacon
1 lb. ground chuck
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup catsup
1 can kidney beans,drained
1 can lima beans,drained
1 can cambell's pork & beans, undrained
Fry bacon until crisp; remove and pat dry. Brown meat and onions in bacon grease. Add remaining ingredients except bacon and stir well. Pour into a greased (Pam) 2 1/2 qt. deep casserole. Crumble the bacon over the top. Bake, uncovered, at 300 for 1 1/2 hour.
Serve with a salad & bread.
My parents used to make "Bean Stroganof" years ago and I still whip it up every now and again.
It's browned ground beef, sauteed onions, garlic, and a bit of chicken broth all cooked together. Add a couple of cans of kidney beans and cook for a while to meld the flavors.
Jst before serving, add some sour cream and stir over low heat (without letting it boil) until heated through.
Serve with chopped green onions. It's even better the second day.
or filling for pierogis?
the food network has one from an emeril show... hamburger meat, ricotta cheese (recipe calls for farmer's cheese) green onion, garlic (?) and eggs to bind it all together.
break out the phyllo dough and make small baked pierogi thingies.
or pasties if you use pie dough...
(i like to add a bit of cheddar cheese to my mix also... )
