Frankfurters in Tasty Sauce

Martha Price


My mother and grandmother served frankfurters often; they are economical, versatile, and we all liked them. Mom and grandma used their imaginations and the different weiner dishes were quite varied in taste.

This was a favorite, especially among the children. When I had my own family I served this, and my daughter loved it! I sometimes omit the lima beans, or substitute another type of bean. This is also good served over pasta!
