Personal Notes:
This recipe was born out of desperation. Many years ago, Mary Ellen took a job as weekend holiday help at Macy's for a little extra cash and the employee discount. One Saturday, I was trying to get lunch together for me and the girls. I suggested franks, and everyone agreed. When I looked in the frig, sure enough there was only 1 frank. We only had 1 car then so I was limited to what was in the house. Well, I continued looking and found a can of baked beans. I heated the beans; boiled the frank and then cut it into very thin round slices, then cut each slice into fours. It looked like I had a ton of franks. I added the franks to the beans and cut slices from a block of mozzarella cheese and put it on top. I put the whole thing in a casserole dish and in the oven. Everyone loved it and the girls asked for it often ever since.
