BEANS AND FRANKS WITH A TWIST

 

Beans and Franks - TSLC

How many times have you said,  “I wish I knew what to “fix” for supper?”  This recipe for beans and franks is easy and made with a few more ingredients than just plain old beans and franks. We love this with cornbread muffins. Children will like it, too.  There are lots of days when I have to throw something together for a quick meal and this is a favorite.

2 (15 ounce) cans pork-n-beans, drained

1 (1 pound) package franks, cut up

3 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup chopped purple onion (can use green onion or regular onion)

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilis, drained

1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons molasses

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Shredded cheddar cheese, Optional

Melt the butter in a skillet on top of the stove.  Brown green pepper, onions, and cut up franks.  Add the drained pork-n-beans, drained diced tomatoes with green chilis, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, molasses, brown sugar, oregano, salt and pepper.  Simmer about 20 minutes. Can sprinkle on shredded cheddar cheese either while still in the skillet or individual servings.   Makes about 6 servings.  Enjoy!

BIG FLUFFY SWEET POTATO BISCUITS

Big Fluffy Sweet Potato Biscuits - TSLCThese biscuits are the best!  They are really good slathered with butter and honey and served with coffee. They are great as a snack or with a meal.  If you are not a sweet potato lover, you will still like these biscuits. They are just plain good! We love them for breakfast but they are good anytime.

3/4 cup sweet potato, boiled, peeled and mashed (1 medium sweet potato will do it)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoons honey or sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
8 tablespoons butter, softened
2/3 cup buttermilk 
 
Whisk together the flour, sugar or honey, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl.  Cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Add the mashed sweet potatoes and buttermilk. Stir to combine all ingredients and turn out onto a floured surface.  Cut out with biscuit cutter. (I use a 14 ounce size tin can to cut out these biscuits). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and bake in preheated 450 degree oven 12 to 15 minutes. Can brush the tops with melted butter.  Makes 10 to 12 biscuits depending on how large you make them.  Enjoy!

YUMMY CORN CASSEROLE

Yummy Corn Casserole - TSLCThis Yummy Corn Casserole makes a great side dish for any meal.  This dish is wonderful for holidays both summer and winter and great for picnics or buffets.  Your family and guests will love this and ask for more.

2 1/2 cups frozen corn

1 (14.75 ounce) can creamed corn

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened (I just put mine in the microwave for about 1 minute to soften)

1 (4 ounce) can green chilis, drained

4 tablespoons butter, divided

1/2 cup chopped green onion

1/2 cup chopped green or red peppers

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon paprika

Pinch cayenne or black pepper (Optional)

1 (6 ounce) can crispy fried onions

Brown onion and green or red peppers in skillet in one tablespoon of the butter.  Spray a 2 quart or larger baking dish with cooking spray,  combine the frozen corn, creamed corn, cream cheese, green chilis, the other 3 tablespoons butter (melted), green onion, green or red peppers, salt, paprika and cayenne or black pepper.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Remove and stir 1 cup of the crispy fried onions into the casserole.  Add the remaining onions on top and bake for 20 more minutes or until onions are golden brown.  Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Note:  You could add meat to this dish and make it a meal.  Cooked meat like smoked sausage, chicken, turkey or ham would all be good in this dish. Bacon would be good, too.
