Break out the napkins and get MESSY in a good way! I made these for lunch. DH loves "beanie weenies" and this was a real pleaser. Made for 1-2-3 Hits. Thanks NELady!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slices home-style whole wheat bread or 4 slices white bread
  • 1 (16 ounce) can baked beans

  1. Preheat the oven to 425*F. Place bread slices in an ungreased shallow baking pan.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the beans and frankfurters. Spread the bean mixture over bread to cover each slice completely, mounding slightly in the center.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes or until heated through. Place a cheese slice on top of each bean sandwich. Bake for 2 to 3 minutes more or until the cheese melts.
