    Baked Beans for 100

    4 (7 lb.) cans Van Camp's Pork and
    5 lbs. thick cut bacon or slab
    4 or 5 lg. bell peppers, cubed
    4 or 5 lg. white onions, chopped
    1 sm. jar French's mustard
    1 or 2 lbs. dark brown sugar
    1/4 c. vinegar
    1/4 c. wine
    To taste: garlic, Lea and Perrins,
    black pepper

    Fry bacon very crisp after slicing into 1 inch wide pieces. Pour off grease, but save enough to prevent beans from sticking and to add flavor. Brown onions and peppers lightly in bacon grease and pour all into large pot. Add the cans of beans, bacon and all the rest of the ingredients. Cook over low heat for about 2 hours.

    This is a good site....

    Bev's Calico Beans

    This is a super good recipe...Everyone is always asking for a copy.... Just increase the amount 2 or 3 times....

    1/2 # hamburger
    1 small onion chopped (Brown together)

    1/4 # bacon cooked and crumbled

    1 can 16 oz. kidney beans (drain and rinse )
    1 can 16 oz. butter beans (drain lightly) blue labeled ones are best
    1 can 16 oz. pork and beans (Bush's Maple beans with onion)

    1/4 cup catsup
    1 Tbl. molasses (Black Strap Holiday brand)

    Combine everything together..

    Mix in a bowl:

    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup granulated sugar

    1 Tbl. dry mustard (If you double the recipe , don't double the dry mustard only use 1 1/2 tbl. dry mustard)

    Combine altogether. Bake 1/2 hour 350 degrees in oven
    or put in crock pot for a couple hours

    Very Good

    This is from Food for Fifty - a book I used when cooking for our church.

    Baked Beans
    50 portion of 5 oz. each

    2 No. 10 cans pork and beans*
    1 pound bacon, diced
    4 oz. chopped onion
    1 cup catsup
    1/4 cup vinegar
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    1 tablespoon prepared mustard

    *This is the huge can of pork and beans that you find on the commercial foods aisle in the grocery store. This instructions did not say to drain the beans, so I wouldn't.

    Partically fry the bacon then add the onion and cook until onions are tender. Pour off fat. Add bacon and onions to pork and beans. Combine the catsup, vinegar, brown sugar and mustard. Stir into beans. Bake at 350º for 1-2 hours.
