Franks and Beans in a Slow Cooker

My friend Katdish was over at Annie's site requesting kid friendly recipes. Her wish is my command. I think. It does kind of depend on your kids, don't it?

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 (8 oz of salsa, your choice medium, mild, or hot, also works well)
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.



  1. My kids are grown but would still enjoy this dish- and yes, it usually is all about the kids.

  2. Thanks, Helen! I'm going to the grocery store right after I watch "Twilight" on PPV.
