Trekking through life: Faith, family, friends and a whole lot of coffee!

Quick and Easy Weeknight August 31, 2012

You can make ahead and freeze both of these.  These recipes are for our family of 6 with about 1 or 2 servings left over (we like leftovers for lunch….), so adjust as necessary!  Also feel free to add, subtract, etc and make it your own…I did!!

Beans and Franks Bake:

2 Boxes of Jiffy corn bread mix prepared according to directions and set aside

1 package of bacon, cooked and crumbled

8 hot dogs, sliced lengthwise and then cut into pieces

1 large can baked beans

1 onion, chopped and diced

1 cup ketchup

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 cups mozzarella cheese grated

1.  Mix bacon, hot dogs, beans, onion, ketchup and sugar into a bowl, pour into a greased 11X13 dish.

2.  Sprinkle cheese on top.

3.  Pour cornbread mix over.

4.  Bake @ 350 for about 30-45 min or until knife comes out clean

We served it up with cucumbers, tomatoes, baby carrotts and peppers.  No complaints from this crew!

Kielbasa Chili

2 packages of Kielbasa, chopped and browned in pan.

2 cans (15 oz) chopped, diced tomatoes

1 can chili with beans

1 can corn (or since we ate the corn earlier this week….oops….we used pinto beans)

Mix and simmer.

Instead of serving over rice, I used millet.  Aside from the question of “What IS this?”.  It was eaten and enjoyed.  A good alternative to rice 😉
