Frankfurter Supper Quickie

Something intrigues me about casseroles called “quickie” in old cookbooks. It’s right there with “Surprise” in the “words not used often enough in today’s recipes” list. Quickie Surprise Wiggle would be best I suppose.

Anyhow–here is a quickie recipe.

Frankfurter Supper Quickie
3 medium tomatoes, sliced 1 ” thick
6 frankfurters, cut into 1/2″ pieces
1 medium green pepper, sliced
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese (processed is suggested but…even my retro soul cringes)
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1/2 teasp salt
1 clove garlic, minced

Preheat oven to 350. Sprinkle tomato slices lightly with flour. In 1 1/2 qt casserole, arrange tomato slices in alternate layers with frankfurters, green pepper, cheese and onion. Sprinkle each layer with the salt and garlic. Bake, covered, 30-35 min until cheese is melted and bubbly.
