Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1/2 lb ground beef
1 tsp prepared mustard
1/4 lb bacon, cut into small pieces
1/2 lb bulk sausage
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup molasses
1 can pork & beans
1 can chili beans
1 can kidney beans, drained

In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, crumble the ground beef and sausage together with the bacon and cook until done.  Remove from pan and drain, reserving 2 tablespoons of the drippings.  Saute the onion in the drippings until softened. 

Combine all the ingredients together in a crockpot or slow cooker; cover and cook on high setting for 2 to 3 hours or on low setting for 5 to 6 hours.

Note:  May be baked at 350 degrees for 1 to 1 1/2 hours in a casserole dish or bean pot.
