BBQ season has officially kicked off! A BBQ isn’t complete without the beans. Well, this ain’t “yo momma’s” typical bean recipe, because it’s my momma’s beans! ha! My mom, Robin, is known for her bean recipe. She makes them for every occasion and they are always a hit. Now, I am not a fan of beans, but I love this recipe. She has so many request for the recipe, she just carries copies with her because she gets asked for it every time she makes them. You will never make beans the same again! Enjoy!
Robin’s Hobo beans
- 1 lb. hamburger
- 1/2 pkg. bacon (cut up into small pieces)
- 1 onion (diced)
Cook the meat and onion in a skillet drain well and dump into a large crockpot.
Add the following ingredients in the the crockpot: (depends on the size of your crockpot and the crowd you’re feeding)
- 2-3 large cans of Bush’s maple brown sugar beans
- 1-2 cans kidney beans
- 1-2 cans navy beans
- 1 cup of white sugar
- 1-2 cups brown sugar
- 2/3 cup BBQ sauce
- Cayenne pepper
Add any other spices, BBQ sauce and additional sugar to suit your taste
Cook until hot and bubbly, stirring occasionally. Turn the crockpot off and remove the lid at least one-hour before serving so that the beans aren’t too hot! Now you are ready to be the talk of the BBQ, in a good way 😉
Make sure and tell your friends you found the recipe at Southwest Missouri Moms!
