Cookout Worthy Baked Beans

I can't believe Memorial Day is this weekend.  I keep thinking it is the 31st, but not this year.  This weekend is the official start to summer.  Are you firing up the grill and serving cookout food?  We usually do.  I don't usually serve my baked beans right out of the can.  As my sweet Grandma Patty would say I "doctor them up" a little.  
Here is what I add:
1 heaping TBSP of brown sugar
1-2 TBSP of Sweet Baby Ray's honey BBQ sauce 
1/2 of a sweet onion (Vidalia) chopped
1 potato (Russet) peeled and chopped up

I mix this all in and bake at 350 degrees for an hour.  Serve warm.  This was all added to 1 standard can of ready made baked beans. 

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Yum we love our baked beans in this house. I will eat them cold for breakfast if we have leftovers.
