Redneck Casserole

*Redneck Casserole*
Serves 4-6

This is a no brainer. Easy to put together and on the table in about half an hour, it uses stuff most people have in their freezer and larder. It’s a good one for those nights when you are in a rush and don’t have time to put together anything more complicated. All you need is some crusty bread on the side to mop up the juices and a tossed salad!

3 (415g) tins of baked beans
1 TBS cider vinegar
2 TBS molasses
1 packed TBS of soft light brown sugar
1 tsp dried mustard powder
½ tsp onion powder
1 package of smoked frankfurters, cut into 1 inch slices
6 frozen potato waffles, or a couple of handfuls of frozen tater tots
6 ounces of strong cheddar cheese, grated

Pre-heat the oven to 200*C/400*F. Empty the beans into a 9 inch square deep baking dish. Stir in the vinegar, molasses, brown sugar, mustard powder and onion powder. Mix all together well. Stir in the cut up frankfurters. When all are mixed together lay the potato waffles evenly over top. You may have to cut a few of them to fit on one side, but use the cut off bits to fill in the middle bit. If you are using tater tots just lay them evenly over top of everything. Sprinkle the grated cheese over top of the potatoes, making sure they are covered evenly. Bake in the heated oven for about 30 to 35 minutes until well bubbly and the waffles are crisp and the cheese is melted. Let sit for a few minutes before spooning out to serve.
