Old Fashioned Franks and Beans
But quick & easy way…aka canned beans. 🤭 😋 So you can use your favorite canned beans, or the least expensive (since this adds flavor anyway), or navy beans that have soaked over night & cooked for an hour 😳 I used to do that! I still would if it was all I had 😉 Here I go guessing again; eyeball it.
Drain liquid from can (either 2 cans or the large family size) and pour into baking dish; in skillet crisp up bacon 🥓 I only used 4 slices because it’s all I was lucky enough to hold onto in this bacon loving house & add to beans, in leftover bacon fat…sauté 1/2 medium chopped onion & stir into beans; then I added a tsp of liquid smoke, about an 1/8 cup of brown sugar (heavy on the molasses; I make my own brown sugar with regular granulated sugar mixed with molasses), a tbs dry mustard (I’ve used regular mustard as well – make it work 😜) stirred into beans. Then I seared (grill works too) some good franks in same skillet for color, cut into 1 to 2 inch pieces and gently stirred into beans. Bake in low, like 300°, oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until desired doneness, thickness.
I know…not pork hot dogs, but that’s what my family likes 🙄⤵️
I also realize I don’t have clean even cut hot dogs, lol, don’t call the culinary police! I used kitchen scissors. Picture me holding hot seared hot dogs with tongs & cutting them over baking dish 🤣 That was NOT mise en place!
