This baked bean recipe is the simplest of all bean recipes.  If you're going to have a cookout or backyard barbecue the following recipe is one you don't want to forget to cook up.  

Baked beans are so popular in our family that we cook these each time we're outside grilling. I often prepare these for potluck lunches, at work as well. 

Over the years I have found that 350 degrees Fahrenheit is the ideal temperature for baking beans.  I have also found that the addition of grounded beef or pork really makes the baked beans taste extra special.  

For this recipe I decided to include ground beef instead of pork since beef is my most preferred meat.  

You don't have to get all fancy and buy expensive pork and beans.  I always use the store brand and to this date no one can tell the difference.  Cooking time calls for 1 hour, but be sure to cook the beans long enough so that the sauce thickens.  You'll find most people prefer beans with thick sauce compared to sauce that runs all over the plate.
