Frank and Bean Sandwiches

Total Time

From Like Grandma Used to Make by Reader's Digest, c. 1996. This is another beans and franks recipe - 4 ingredients, simple to put together, and good!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slices home-style whole wheat bread or 4 slices white bread
  • 1 (16 ounce) can baked beans
  • 2 frankfurters, sliced
  • 4 slices American cheese or 4 slices swiss cheese


  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.
