Paupers Dinner

2 cans baked beans
1/4 cup Maple Syrup (Or Karo Syrup or Molasses)
1/4 cup brown sugar (could use white sugar or diet sugar)
3 or 4 slices of bacon if you have it.

Mix all ingredients except bacon together and put in baking pan. Lay bacon across the stop. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

You could really add anything you had. If you had potatoes, meat, or vegetables you just added them in with the above ingredients. If you didn’t have bacon-a little surgar across the top would do. Mom and Dad were working during the depression and she said she would make this dish with whatever they had. As we kids grew up she added vegetables because we would eat vegetables we wouldn’t normally eat because of the sweet taste. As my parents got in a better financial position she would only make this dish when we begged her. I still bake this dish today, the same way Mom did.
