Budget Stretcher: Leftover Makeover Corn Dog Bean Bake
We had a rather hectic weekend. Shabat we came straight home from synagogue and made dinner at home. It was the perfect meal for what turned into a rainy afternoon. The temperatures dropped a little and our supper of baked beans and hot dogs seemed just right for a comforting sort of meal. However, there were leftovers of the baked beans. Since we like the vegetarian beans we find them only in the super tall calls, too much for two. This week it worked very much in our favor as you'll see.
I mixed our baked beans (which I always doctor with a bit of mustard, brown sugar, onions and ketchup) and the hot dogs and put them in a deep casserole dish. Then I made a half recipe of cornbread and mixed in a cup of shredded cheddar cheese, poured on top of the beans and hot dogs and baked until the cornbread was golden.
