Hello everyone, I'm Cindi, aka "domestic goddess", and I consider myself to be a country girl at heart. I'm also a mother to 3 daughters, and I have 1 granddaughter. Being a country gal, I enjoy preparing down-home country meals for my family. I also enjoy sharing recipes with others, collecting cookbooks, reading about the paranormal, and spending time with my family.

Five O'Clock Franks

This recipe is from my 1975 Campbell's Cookbook titled...
A Campbell Cookbook Most-For-The-Money Main Dishes.
I did however tweak the recipe a bit, substituting one soup
for another, and also using another kind of noodles.

Five O'Clock Franks

1 (l6 oz.) pkg. franks, cut into 1/2" pieces
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 (10-3/4 oz.) can Campbell's Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup
2 tablespoons ketchup
1/3 cup water
1-1/2 cups uncooked rotini noodles
8 ounces frozen cut green beans, cooked and drained

In a 10-inch skillet, brown the franks and onion in butter until tender; stirring often. (I browned the franks and onion over medium to medium-low heat within 5 minutes.)

Stir in the soup, ketchup, and water.

Add the cooked noodles and cooked green beans; stir and heat through.

Season with salt and pepper, according to taste.

Yields: 5 servings

*Note: Campbell's original recipe states to use a can of cheddar cheese soup, but I opt to use Fiesta Nacho Cheese, which gave this hot dish a bit of a 'kick'. Also, I cooked the frozen green beans with 2 tablespoons of water, in a 900 watt microwave oven for 9 minutes; stirring them after 4 minutes and 30 seconds. I should also mention, I cooked the noodles for 9 minutes.

Monique, thanks much for the compliment on the hot dish. I appreciate it, and that you had checked out one of my recipes. Sorry that particular kind of soup isn't available in The Netherlands.
