I always think of soup as a winter dinner - but one day when it was so hot and I didn't want to turn on the oven - my oldest asked if she could make soup. Why not I thought? I quickly got my grandpa Kortright's recipe for Tomato Frank Soup and let her run with it.
1 cup chopped onion 8 oz frankfurters, sliced (4 or 5 - I always end up using the whole package - about 8) 3 Tablespoons butter 1 can condensed tomato soup 1 can condensed bean with bacon soup 1 1/2 soup cans water (2 cups) 1/2 tsp. sugar 1/2 tsp. chili powder 1/2 tsp. oregano
In a saucepan cook onion, franks, and butter until onions are tender. Stir in remainder of ingredients. Cover and simmer five minutes.
It made a lovely summer dinner! Try it!
P.S. Make a big batch for dinner and send it to school with the kids the next day!
