Two young cooks...two methods of preparing frankfurters.

This tasty bean and franks dish is very easy to make and the kids love it, too.

Good ol' beans and franks are slowly baked to bring out all the flavors. They're great for a family get-together, church social activity, or for a bunch of of young girls on a sleep-over with big appetites to feed.

My nieces wanted to prepare dinner for their young girlfriends who were coming for a sleep-over. They wanted to make beans and franks. We could have taken the easy way out and bought some baked beans, add hot dogs and brown sugar and bake them for a while, like I used to do when I was a kid. But no, the girls would have none of that and insisted on making beans from seratch. So we gave this recipe a try but used small white beans in place of the great northerns and pintos. The recipe did not disappoint...it was easy to make, tasted terrific, and was a hit with the kids!
