Beans and Wee Knees

Alright! Alright! Beans and Franks! But I'm weird and I make up nicknames for everything and everyone. It's a bad habit, but I enjoy it. ANY WHO! My husband's very favorite thing that I make is Beans and Franks. I don't know if this is good or bad. But this is a comfort food that he loves so I make it for him just about once every other week. He's an easy man to please!
























Ingredients
1. One large can of your favorite baked beans
2. One small can of roasted green chillies
3. One Tblsp of Dijon Mustard
4. Apx 1/4 of maple syrup
5. One package Beef Franks (low fat or turkey dogs are not the same, per my husband)


This is the wee knee part.... I slice them and broil them on a foil lined pan until they are slightly crispy....


While the franks are broiling, I put the rest of the ingredients in a casserole dish and stir.


Once the franks are done stir them
in to the casserole.


Bake until bubbly...

Serve it up and eat it in front of the TV. Because that's perfectly white trash! LOL!

I have to admit that I always have to at least taste this dish. I don't make a meal of it because this is how I got fat. Comfort Food! But this really is an inexpensive, easy and tasty dish for a week night.

I was looking through all your pictures. Your house and kitchen look so comfy and welcoming.

Your recipe sounds the great one, on a cold and beautiful winter day, after a good hike outdoor. Warmth the heart and body.

Hi Liz, My husband would love this. Cute names for food. Why not?
Thanks for stopping by tonight and checking oout my favorites. I'm looking forward to the Twilight movie as well. I guess it's not too surprising since we loved all the Harry Potter's. I'm sure lots of adults will see it. At least I'm trying to convince myself. LOL!~Melissa

LOL, can't help but thing about the movie Something About Mary....

I detest beans, but those broiled weenies look prettttty tasty!
I know Kevin would like this recipe.

I doubt white trash would broil the dogs, or bake the dish. It would be a one pot meal on top of the stove, rofl!

Have to admit, I love to eat in front of the tv. I let Nova do it once in a while~
