1/2 pound bacon, chopped

1/2 pound ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped

4 hot dogs, cut into 1-inch pieces

1 (12-ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 (12-ounce) can pork 'n' beans

1 (12-ounce) can butter beans

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup ketchup

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1 teaspoon liquid smoke

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, add bacon, ground beef, and onion. Cook until meat is browned all over, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add the hotdogs and all the beans to pan, and simmer until heated through. Once heated, put into a large mixing bowl and add brown sugar, sugar, ketchup, dry mustard, and liquid smoke. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well and pour mixture into a 13-by 9-inch baking dish. Bake until casserole is thick and bubbly, about 1 hour.
