It’s the day after Christmas and you look in the fridge only to realize it’s bare. You’ve eaten all the leftovers and all you can think about is either not cooking at all or cooking something ridiculously easy. I went with the latter. So I called up my daddy and asked him for his Beanie Weenie Casserole recipe. It’s not anything super special but when you do it right, it’s comforting and good. Easy on the wallet too!

  1. Cathy W says:

    That looks mighty fine, I’d like a side if hash browns or fried potatoes with mine!

  2. Chelsey says:

    I’m with Cathy on this. Throw in a side dish of fried potatoes and that would be the perfect dinner on a cold night!

  3. Donna B. says:

    My dad used to make something similar but he added BBQ sauce and mustard to his, and he used kielbasa instead of cocktail franks (or just cut-up hot dogs in case of emergency). Everyone raved about it.

  4. Sarah L says:

    I don’t have the smokies, but have everything else and can use some sausages & have in the freezer. Thanks for the suggestion.

  17. For me, the recipe sounds super yummy. I normally have all these items on stock, so it might be something I just might have to make.
