    1/2 cup ketchup
    1tsp. mustard
    1 can butter beans
    1 can kidney beans
    1 can pork and beans (your choice on what size.... get a bigger can if you want to make a lot, or a regular can to make 8 servings or so).
    brown up the hamburger, (drain off the fat of course) and onion then just mix it all together in a cassarole and bake on 350 for a hour. i have also made it in the crockpot which turned out good too. they are always a huge hit

  • I can't choose just one dish. But it's summer and was at a reunion the other week. In the pasta salad were red kidney beans. I thought, wow, that's a great idea. So the next time I made it I put a can in. Of course, I load my pasta salad up with 3 kinds of cubed cheeses. Onion, celery, red, green and yellow peppers. It just can't be plain old pasta. Have to add lots of yummy stuff to it.

  • Great summer casserole; peal one or more zucchini squash, an onion, sliced, and a tomato sliced. Layer in casserole dish greased with olive oil. I make mine about 3 layers of each veggie, sprinkle with garlic salt, bake at 350 about an hour; then put layer of cheese over it, my favorite is cheddar but any good 'melty' cheese works, back in oven until cheese melts and is bubbly. We all love it and every potluck I've taken it to it has been a hit. You can add Italian spices or chili pepper for a change.

  • It's not really a secret recipe but I make bbq pork ribs that just fall off the bone. You take a large flat jellyroll type pan (with small sides, not a flat cookie sheet just in case anything leaks) line it with heavy duty foil. Spray the foil with cooking spray. Put the ribs in it (meaty side up), salt, pepper, 1/3c water, and a little BBQ sauce just for flavor. Fold in the sides and top of the foil to make a pouch. Stick your ribs in the oven on 200 for several hours (at least 4) to steam. Turn up to 300 for 30 minutes or until meat is fork tender and nearly falling off bone. Take pan out of oven, drain liquid from foil, fold foil down flat to pan to expose ribs, baste with sauce, stick under broiler to caramelize.
