The first time I made this for DH after we were married, he gave me a funny look, but once we chowed down on this childhood fav...he understood. I use essentially the same recipe, but leave out the bacon (I already feel bad enough about the sugar and fat!) sooooo good! Thanks for posting!
Made this for the weekend of March 17 2009 along with Hedgehog Meat Loaves - and yes as suggested they were kid pleasers - a treat for the adults as well. Made as posted using some really good flavored smokies. Likely will not add the sugar next time around but this is one I am looking to make for those summer weekends. Thank you for sharing. Edited to add: this recipe saw to a repeat and again no leftovers. Used a tablespoon of sugar the second time around - perfect for our tastes!
This dish is SO different from what I usually cook, but I tried it- and it was good! I used low-fat beef franks, vegetarian baked beans, and stone-ground mustard instead of honey mustard. Very tasty comfort food.
