Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 3 quart casserole dish. You don't need to preheat oven right away because the first part of this recipe calls for cooking some ingredients on the stove top.
In large skillet cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels. When cool, dice and set aside. Reserve drippings!
Add onion slices to fat in hot skillet.
Add syrup or brown sugar to skillet, along with garlic powder and dry mustard.
Reduce heat to medium and CAREFULLY add vinegar, slowly. Take care because hot steam will rise.
Cover and cook this mixture for 20 minutes.
Add beans (all kinds) to casserole dish. Stir in onion mixture and bacon pieces. Mix well. Cover and bake in 350* oven for 45 minutes.
Uncover and let stand for 20-25 minutes before serving.
