Beans and Franks or Beanie Weenee

Beans and Franks or Beanie Weenee It really doesn't matter which name you use. When it comes down to it really, it's what ever your mother use called to it. Beans and Franks is one of those meals you ate as a child at home or in the school cafeteria. I feel kind of embarrassed posting this recipe only because it is just so simple to make. Beans and Franks is very kid friendly and cheap on the pocket book. Either way its still really good and still a popular favorite in our house. If there is one thing I cannot stand it's Beanie Weenee in a can YUCK!!!! There is no reason to eat it out of a can when it's such a cinch to throw together just add a few jazzed up ingredients and its really quite tasty.

I like to make this casserole when I am pressed for time and really just need to just throw something together for dinner. I always serve my Beans and Franks with Sweet Corn Muffins, it's kind of like peas and carrots its just the perfect combination. Add a little fruit on the side and your quick meal is complete. I know this is a super easy silly kind of meal but I still wanted to post it. Beans and Franks is a simple family favorite that i think is a forgotten dish in some families.
