Homemade Beanie Weenies

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by True Texas

My sons loved this dish when they were young and the oldest one still does. It's a quick fix for a busy week night or weekend. What I love about them you can add more beans or franks. You might want to add a little brown sugar or even barbeque sauce, but this is the way I make them everytime.

I have to be honest and say the only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because I really don't like it. BUT, my husband and son LOVE it!! If I make this for them, they are in hog heaven...must be something about Texas men! Anyway, it is a very easy recipe and well liked by all men...at least the ones we have served this too. They take this on camping/hunting/fishing trips, and request it often at home.
