Frank and Potato Bake

From Good Food on a Budget (1971)…I love the intro to this recipe:

Include frankfurters on your list of foods that offer great eating pleasure for little money. They’re flavorful, versatile and don’t contain one bit of waste.

Frank and Potato Bake

1 pound frankfurters
2/3 cup reconstituted nonfat dry milk
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
8 ounces process cheese spread, cut up (2 cups)
2 tablespoons minced onion
2 teaspoons finely snipped parsley
8 medium potatoes, cooked, peeled, and sliced (8 cups)

Reserve 3 franks; slice remaining franks and set aside. In saucepan, stir milk into flour until smooth. Add cheese; cook and stir till thickened and smooth. Add onion, parsley, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; fold cheese mixture into potatoes and sliced franks. Turn into a 2-quart casserole. Bake, covered for 40 minutes. Halve reserved franks; arrange in a pinwheel atop casserole. Bake uncovered, 10 minutes. Top with parsley, if desired. Makes 8 servings.


  1. The words frankfurter and waste go hand in hand don’t they? It doesn’t sound like a bad recipe, as long as you ditch the processed cheese and use cheddar.

  2. Yes, I was thinking that myself TJ.
