$0.87 per serving ~ Dogs, Beans n' Cornbread

This is a family favorite, and on a miserably cold & dreary day this felt like comfort food. Strictly speaking this isn't the healthiest meal, but it is wonderfully flavorful and fun.

Dogs, Beans n' Cornbread ~ $0.87 per serving
1 28 oz. can baked beans ($1.67)
1 package hot dogs, halved lengthwise and sliced ($2.00)
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp. spicy brown mustard
1 package corn bread mix ($0.50)
1 egg ($0.25)
1/3 cup milk ($0.10)
4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese ($0.70)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl and transfer to a greased baking dish.
2. Prepare cornbread mix according to package direction (Jiffy brand uses the egg and milk.) Stir in cheese. Drop by spoonfuls onto bean mixture.
3. Bake uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes.
Makes 6 servings.

The Verdict
Yum. And I served it with the leftover green beans from yesterday so we would have a little something healthy with all this evil...

I remember eating Dogs and Beans many many times as a child. With six kids in the house meals like this were staples. I had never had it with cornbread on top so I had to try it and YUMMY! Elizabeth aka the pickiest eater alive gobbled it right up. I love your blog and I have a list of recipes to try from it!
