This was one of my favorite dishes to eat as a kid, but I hadn't had it in years and years until I tried this recipe. What a nostalgic trip for my tastebuds! My mom would take calico beans to picnics and potlucks and now I do, too. I don't always add the ground meat (I use turkey when I do) or the bacon in case my vegetarian friends are joining us or if I am serving the beans on the side. I also add roughly 1/2 tsp of garlic powder and 1/4ish tsp of celery salt if I don't have fresh celery on hand. Otherwise, I make it as is and enjoy it every time!
