Cheddar Franks and Beans

These Franks and Beans are amazingly good. The cheddar gets a little lost in the mix, but it's richness continues on. You'll love the way these turned out, plus it's a great way to use up that leftover Cheddar Wing Sauce.

I did beans like this for my Birthday Party last year, without the franks. I used 4 different Cheddar Wing Sauces, all with different heat levels. My Son, Critter, and I made them up the day before the party. And, rather than label them, he memorized how he stacked them. Well, the next day came around, and we placed them in the oven to warm up, then on the table for service. He still said that he remembered which order they were in, from mild to Ghost Pepper.

Boy did he blow it. The people who choose the mild one, kept talking about how hot it was, and that they couldn't imagine how we could be eating a hotter one. Critter and I kept talking about how the beans must have sucked the ghost out of the hot one, because it wasn't.

I finally decided to taste the mild one. They were in the opposite order from what he remembered. These poor people, who thought they were eating mild, were actually eating the Ghost Cheddar Beans. The funny thing though, the one who complained the loudest about them being so hot, was the only one who finished her whole plate. I guess the endorphins were running high that day. So, we all had a good laugh, and Critter and I vowed to make sure to taste test next time.

While making these, all I had mixed up was the Cheddar / Jalapeno Wing Sauce. Knowing that it wouldn't be too hot, I added the peppers to it. It still didn't quite make it near my personal taste in heat levels. However, all is not lost, you could easily replace this mild version with any one of my hotter Cheddar Wing Sauces. It's a great way to use up the leftovers, and have something very different from that which you might have had before.

Cheddar Franks and Beans Frying Hot Dogs Picture


1.    I made a double batch today. One hot, and one not. So I'm frying up 7 hot dogs. 6 for the 2 pots of beans, and one for me. Frying hot dogs is kinda like cooking with beer, 1 for the pot, and 1 for me!

2.    Set the cooked hot dogs on paper towels to let the grease dry out.

Open the beans and drain them. Save the liquid because you might need it after you've got everything else in the pot.

3.    Cut the bacon into 1/2" - 3/4" pieces and fry them in your bean pot over medium heat.

Remove the bacon, and cook the vegetables in the bacon fat over med. heat, with the lid on, until they're real soft, about 10 minutes.

5.    Once the vegetables are cooked through; add the Drained Beans, the Cheddar Wing Sauce, and the chopped up Hot Dogs. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until everything's hot. Add some of the saved liquid from the beans if it's thickened up too much. I ended up added 1/2 cup.
