Hearty Maple Beans

These beans are great to put in the crockpot for a cookout.

6 bacon strips, diced
1/2 lb. fully cooked kielbasa or sausage, sliced
1/2 C chopped onion
1 can (16 oz) baked beans
1 can (16 oz) kidney beans, rinsed & drained
1 can (15 1/2 oz) butter beans, rinsed & drained
1/2 C maple syrup
3 T vinegar
3 T prepared mustard
3 T ketchup

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon & place on paper towels. Drain, reserving 1 T drippings. In the drippings, cook the sausage & onions over medium heat until sausage is lightly browned. Stir in the bacon & remaining ingredients. Transfer to an ungreased baking dish. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25-30 min. or until bubbly. Makes 8 servings.
