Franks and Beans in a Slow Cooker

My friend Beth, at that's not me anymore, Beth's take on technology and microwave hot dogs. has initiated a conversation about gourmet hot dog suppers. I thought I would contribute this:

Franks and Beans in a Slow Cooker

2 16 oz cans of great northern beans, drained
1 16oz can of cut green beans, drained
1 8 oz can of tomato sauce
1 chopped onion
¼ cup of sugar or sugar substitute
2 tsp of yellow mustard
A dash of black pepper
16 oz of frankfurters, cut into circles

Spray container with butter flavored cooking spray. Combine beans and tomato sauce in the container. Add onion, sugar, mustard, and pepper. Mix well. Stir in frankfurters. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Mix well before serving.

If you choose fat free hot dogs and use sugar substitute, viola (that sic is for you Annie), you have a diet supper.


  1. (snicker, snicker, snicker...) Sorry, I just read Sherri's comment! "O love this kind of stuff!"

    AHEM. That sounds yummy. I'm on my way to take a package of hot dogs out of the freezer for tomorrow.

    Is it just me, or did anyone else think of the bathroom scene in "What About Mary?" when they read "franks and beans"?

    Oh. I'm back from painting.

  2. Don't forget the Diet Coke Helen. Oh, and have you ever used Coke in that type of recipe instead of sugar? Dr. Pepper works well too.

  3. My only problem is that I have a problem planning a menu more than 40 minutes in advance...

  4. Katdish, I never saw that movie. Was it any good?
    Sherri, I normally don't like franks and beans, but this tastes good to me somehow..
    Annie, no I didn't ever do that. 1 whole can? Other ingredients the same?
    Beth, it doesn't take much planning. You probably have all the ingredients at home anyway. It is only a matter of emptying the containers earlier than usual....

  5. A person necessarily assist to make seriously articles
    I would state. This is the very first time I frequented your web
    page and to this point? I amazed with the research you made to make this actual put up extraordinary.
