When I was growing up, Beanee Weenees were a novelty item…Mama bought them sometimes, but not a lot. And I know why now. Have you SEEN how much those little boogers cost? It’s outrageous. I mean, it’s BEANS AND WEENIES IN A CAN! It’s not exactly caviar. You can’t blame that on inflation because IT’S BEANS AND WEENIES IN A CAN…which are still cheap foods even 30 years later. I have renamed this recipe to Beenie Weenies – so you won’t confuse the two. 😉 Plus, it’s how I like to spell it. The two EEs are just weirdo.
Mostly my mom would just make her own Beanee Weenees (see, it’s weird) and she still does that for us sometimes. She would cut up hotdogs and mix them with cans of Pork ‘n Beans. To this day, I still love them. My Grandmaw would always keep cans of them for the kids – and my Papaw…but sometimes you just get things at grandma’s house that you don’t get anywhere else. It’s like Vegas.
