Frankfurter Supper Dish ala ~DKBB~

(original recipe from Betty Crocker's New Good and Easy Cookbook, 1972)

This has been a family staple for decades. The ingredients are something you usually have on hand, it's inexpensive, and it pretty much covers all the food groups except fruit.

6 frankfurters
1 10oz pkg. frozen green beans
1 1/2 cups cream sauce (I use Wondra flour's cream sauce recipe)
1/2 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
1/2 to 1 cup grated cheese (cheddar, pepper jack...whatever floats your boat)
about 1/2 package seasoned croutons

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  • Drop franks into boiling water and heat 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Remove partially-cooked franks from water; cut into 1 inch pieces.
  • Cook beans half the time directed on pkg.
  • Make cream sauce, stirring in Worchestershire sauce.
  • Stir franks and beans into cream sauce.
  • Pour all into a 1 1/2 to 2 quart casserole dish.
  • Cover with croutons; sprinkle grated cheese over croutons.
  • Bake 30 minutes.
