Ola Brown's Baked Beans

For Memorial Day, Fred and I went over to his parents house for dinner. We had the usual ribs, potato salad, and I was in charge of bringing the baked beans.

I used my grandmother's recipe for baked beans and they were a hit!

1 large can of baked beans (any flavor)
1 pound tube of sausage (I used Jimmy Dean's Reduced Fat Sausage)
3 tablespoons of brown sugar (I use Light Brown Sugar)
4 tablespoons of BBQ sauce (any brand)
4 tablespoons of Ketchup (any brand)
1/2 teaspoon of vinegar

Brown the sausage. Combine all ingredients in a baking dish and cook at 325 for one hour.

Green Bean Bundles

I got this from Kelly's Recipes!

2 or 3 cans of whole green beans
Bacon slices
1 stick of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
tsp of garlic salt

Wrap a handful of green beans in half a slice of bacon. That makes one bundle - keep going for as many bundles as you would like to have. Melt a stick of butter and stir in one cup of brown sugar (more or less depending on how sweet you would like it). Add a teaspoon of garlic salt. Pour over bundles. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Then put under the broiler for 4-5 minutes at the end. DELICIOUS!

German Chocolate Heath Bar Cake

1 box of German Chocolate Cake Mix
1 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
1 16 oz. jar of caramel ice cream topping
1 8 oz. Cool Whip
1 Heath Bar (crushed)

Bake the cake as directed on the package for a 9 x 13 pan. Let cool for 15 minutes and poke the top of the warm cake every ½ inch with handle of a wooden spoon. Drizzle condensed milk evenly over the top of the cake and let stand until absorbed into the cake. Drizzle with caramel topping.
Cover and refrigerate for two hours.
Spread with Cool Whip and sprinkle with Heat Bar chips (and/or chocolate chips). Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Fruit Dip

1 can fat free sweetened condensed milk
1 tub fat free/lite cool whip
1/8 cup- 1/4 cup lemon juice

Mix and set in refrigerator to let stand. Serve with fruit (great with berries).

You can also put the mixture in a graham cracker pie crust and top with berries to make a great summer pie.
