Calico Baked Beans
Sweet and tangy beans that are a meal in and of itself, however we enjoy this as a side dish to Grandma Stella's Chicken Noodle Hot Dish, on camping trips and really with any of our favorite summer barbecue foods. My favorite side dish to this side dish is my mom's homemade potato salad, which comes as close to Grandma Stella's potato salad as one can get.
Bacon, beef, sausage and a variety of beans swim in a sweet and tangy barbecue sauce in a slow oven for a couple hours.
