Granny’s Pork and Beans

Granny's Pork and Beans

My sister, Velma, was the queen of ‘doctoring up’ canned goods.  Having eight children, she was an expert at preparing quick and hearty meals to feed everyone.  I learned so much from her while hanging out in her kitchen…so many fond memories.  Okay, back to the beans.

I start with a can of plain, old, cheap, pork and beans – any brand works.  (There’s never any pork in them anymore anyway.)  I pour off the liquid on top, then dump in a pan.  The measurements are approximate.

I add the following:

1 teaspoon yellow mustard (or ¼ teaspoon dried mustard)
1 tablespoon catsup or ketchup, depending on where you live
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ tablespoon dried, minced onions

Mix well, heat and eat.  If you feel like beanie wienies, thinly slice a hot dog and toss it in.  Be sure to heat long enough to thoroughly cook the hot dog.
