Easy Baked Beans

I love baked beans. However I do not always have the time nor the desire to make them from scratch. So on days like those I doctor up some canned beans and no one can tell the difference. And the best part is you can add whatever your tastes are that day. Some times I use barbecue sauce and sometimes I use ketchup. Sometimes I use bacon and sometimes I use salt pork. However you decide to do it here is the basics:
one large can Bush's baked beans (really you could use any kind but I prefer Bush's)
1 can northern beans, rinsed (again you can use any kind of beans but my preference is northern)
1/4 cup brown sugar, more if you want really sweet or less if you prefer yours less sweet
1/2 cup ketchup or barbecue sauce, more or less depending on you
about 8 slices bacon or a piece of pork salt, chopped
1 onion, chopped

Fry the chopped bacon or salt pork. About halfway through cooking them add the chopped onion. After meat is cooked and onions soft add the beans. Then add the sugar and ketchup or barbecue sauce. Bring to a bubble then simmer for 15-20 minutes.
