Three Bean Casserole

I've made this several times in the past, but realized that I have never posted the recipe. I got the recipe from AllRecipes. This really isn't my kind of meal, but it is Kevin's, so I make it for him sometimes. Carson also really likes it. Kevin wasn't crazy about having mac and cheese this week, so I ended up making this for him instead. Its super easy to prepare. I was able to use my home-canned baked beans with it this time, so it tasted extra good! I even kind of liked it this time. I also used one of our last packs of pork sausages that we got with our pig last winter. They also made this one extra yummy. :). Kevin likes to use Fritos Scoops to eat his three bean casserole, but its still good just eating it plain with a fork.

I'll update with a picture whenever I upload pictures from the camera. We're kind of in limbo right now with our computer... the desk is in the basement and the computer is still hooked up on the floor of the 3rd bedroom. I didn't realize they hadn't already wired the play area part of the basement and Kevin didn't think about it being an issue until I started moving the computer down and we realized we couldn't plug it in down there yet. So anyway, the computer is useable, but its not convenient, not to mention we've been spending every spare minute either outside or spring cleaning. I'll update all the posts with pictures this weekend, hopefully.

Anyway, here's the recipe.

Three Bean Casserole

1 pound beef frankfurters, sliced
1 (15 ounce) can pork and beans
1 (15 ounce) can butter beans
1 (16 ounce) can chili beans, drained
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl combine the frankfurters, pork and beans, butter beans, chili beans, onion, sugar, oregano and vinegar. Mix all together and pour mixture into a lightly greased 9x13-inch baking dish. (I just mix everything right in the casserole dish to save on clean up.) Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for 1 hour, or until cooked through and bubbly (I usually take it out after about 40-45 minutes).

Mmmm. I bet we'd like this. Sounds like baked beans...with a little extra :)

That's kind of what it tastes like. Kevin says its more like a BBQ baked beans taste. I agree.
