Jazzed Up Beans & Weiners with Fried Potatoes

READY IN: 4hrs 20mins
Recipe by Manda

This is a simple, no fuss meal that starts with inexpensive, commonly found ingredients. This dish is popular with kids, and yet it satisfies the "meat and potatoes" man. You can also use canned sliced potatoes, which cuts down the cooking time quite considerably, but I prefer to use fresh. Make extra potatoes to heat up for breakfast with your eggs...yummy!!

This is a pretty good dish but my potatoes burned--so they must be watched very carefully--maybe they need more butter so they won't burn so easily. However we liked the beans & franks part of this recipe very much even though I used 8 hotdogs (the whole package) instead of the amount specified. We had this dish with brown bread and Aunt Emma's Bread Pudding recipe#17752 for a great old-fashioned Friday night supper that we all enjoyed.
