Freaky Franks and Beans

A tasty little scare that goes a long way on Halloween! To feed an appetite for the gross and gory, cut hot dogs to look like fingers and the kids will become the first all-organic “cannibals.”

Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 1 hour
Servings: 6

Ingredients:

  • 32 ounce canned white beans (navy or great northern)
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup Maple Valley Organic Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped fine and sauteed in butter
  • 6 Organic Valley Uncured Beef Hot Dogs, cut in half

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Rinse and drain beans. Sauté chopped onion in a bit of butter to bring out the full flavor. If you’re making hot dog “fingers”: cut hot dogs in half and use the rounded end as a “fingertip.” Simply carve out a U-shaped “nailbed”.

2. Combine all of the ingredients in a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish. Bake uncovered for 50 minutes at 350 degrees.

Note
Makes great leftovers! Serve with a fresh green salad, topped with hard boiled Organic Valley Eggs and your favorite organic salad dressing.
