After a mammoth grillfest, I'm always stuck with leftovers, and the last thing I want to do is make another run to the grocery store. Today, I plan on making a laid-back meal using items I already have on hand so that none of it goes to any waste. I'll prepare a dish I like to call cheesy beans and franks.
It's a cross between two comfort food faves: mac and cheese and cassoulet. Instead of carbohydrate-rich macaroni, I'm subbing in white beans and using frankfurters to ramp up the meaty flavor and texture.
