Little Angel Macaroni Casserole

This is a great recipe that is total comfort food. Not only that, but it tends to use up a lot of odds and ends that are in the fridge. I expected my kids to be picky about this, but they both tried it and loved it. I got the idea for this on a food forum on what to do with leftover macaroni and cheese. The gal called it "Little Angel Casserole," so I continued on with that name.

Busch's makes a variety of baked beans that can slightly change how this dish ends up tasting. You can go with a traditional baked bean, or jazz it up with the onion style or maple cured bacon. Enjoy!

Little Angel Casserole (Idea for Leftover Macaroni and Cheese)
Makes about 6 servings


  • 2-3 cups leftover macaroni and cheese
  • 1 small can beans or about 1/2 large can of beans, use your favorite style (We love Busch's brand, they have a nice variety of flavors)
  • 3 hot dogs, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar


  1. Preheat oven to 350-f degrees. Lightly spray a medium casserole dish with cooking spray. 
  2. Reheating the macaroni makes it a bit easier to work with. In a microwave proof mixing bowl, reheat the leftover macaroni with about 1 tsp. of water. Stir well. 
  3. Add the beans and hot dogs to the macaroni. Stir well. Pour the macaroni mixture into the casserole dish. Top with shredded cheese. 
  4. Cover with foil and bake 25 minutes. Remove foil and let bake another 5-10 minutes.
