Slow-Cooker Three Bean Casserole

Ingredients

  • ¾ lb pork sausage
  • ¾ lb ground beef
  • 1 lb little smokies
  • 2 - 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 (21 oz) cans baked beans (any variety)
  • 1 (15 oz) can lima or butter beans, drained
  • 1 (15 oz) can kidney beans, drained
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 4 Tbsp ground mustard
  • ¼ cup honey ( or packed brown sugar)
  • ¼ cup white or cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp red pepper sauce (more or less, to taste)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  • In a 10-inch skillet, add the sausage, ground beef, celery, onion, and garlic. Cook over medium heat (~8-10 minutes), stirring occasionally until the meat is no longer pink; drain.
  • In a slow cooker, combine the meat mix and remaining ingredients.
  • Cover and cook on low heat setting for 5-6 hours
  • Turn off the slow-cooker, let its contents cool, and transfer to the refrigerator (the flavors really meld over-night)
  • The next day cook in the slow-cooker, on the low heat setting, another 2 - 3 hours
  • Serve and enjoy!
