Frank and Bean Bake
This is not your typical 'frank and beans' casserole, it could loosely be described as a 'hot dog with the works', bean and rice casserole.
1 (15.5-ounce) can kidney beans, drained
1/2 of a 12-ounce package frankfurters, sliced into 2-inch rounds
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese - divided use
3 cups cooked rice
2 cups finely sliced celery
1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1/2 cup milk
- Combine beans, frankfurters, 1 cup cheese, rice, celery, relish and onion.
- Blend mayonnaise, mustard, salt and milk. Add to the bean and rice mixture. Toss lightly.
- Turn into buttered 2 1/2-quart casserole. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Makes 6 servings.
