Bratwurst and Bean Skillet Supper

 Weeknight meals usually need to be quick and easy when you have to take kids to music practice and get homework done.  Nights like this is when I love a one skillet supper like these Brats and Beans.  This meal was ready in less than 15 minutes and I only had one pan to wash.  Easy-Peasy and enjoyed by all in the family.

1 package bratwurst (I used Johnsonville Brand)
1 bunch of green onions
1  large can of Baked Beans (I recommend Bush's Vegetarian)
1 can of black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
red chili flakes to taste
salt and black pepper to taste
1/3 cup of water

In a large skillet brown the bratwurst with one tsp of canola oil.  Then add the lower part of the green onions and cook for 1 minute with the bratwurst.

Next add the baked beans, black beans, cumin powder, chili flakes, garlic powder, salt, black powder and water.  Simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning. Garnish with tops of green onions.  Serve with toasted buttered crusty bread or hot dog buns and hot dog condiments. Enjoy.
