JohnnyRoadTrip's Baked Bean Casserole or Beans and Franks|
"This traditional American dish is a great side item for tailgating. In many cases baked beans will also contribute to crowd noise during the game!"
Thanks to Greg Pyne, from the JohnnyRoadTrip Website, for sharing this fun and easy tailgate recipe.
Time Required: 15 minutes prep, less than one hour unsupervised cooking
Skill Required: Minimal skills needed
2 large cans of baked beans (about 28 oz each)

1/2 cup ketchup
Small amount of mustard
