[day 6] Beans & Weenies (Comfort Food Made Easy)
So a few weeks back I was about to fall asleep and was really craving beans and weenies, something I kind of remember as a kid...The next day I looked at a few recipes but nothing fit my needs. So I went to the grocery store and picked up a few things and combined those with my pantry essentials (canned beans!) I came up with the recipe below. Go grab your slow cooker kids!
[Beans & Weenies]
2 15 oz cans of vegetarian baked beans (the generic organic brand at the store is vegan!)
1 15 oz can of pinto beans drained (I had these on hand but you can use pink beans)
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
a pinch of mustard powder
1 package of veggie hot dogs cut into bite sized chunks
Combine all the ingredients in the slow cooker, cook on low 4-5 hours and eat!
Simple and satisfying...I bet kids would like this if you are into that sort of thing!
