This is one of my stepmother's recipes. Tastes good topped with grated sharp cheddar cheese. Any leftovers will taste even better the next day.

i know youre not supposed to change the recipe however, this is made especially good if you fry the hotdogs with a little onion n a pan first and right before you add the beans sprinkle in a little brown sugar and put the heat way down and let them simmer a while. i did everything else how the recipe called for and it was easy and good.

I took soupisgoodfood33's advice and sauteed the hot dogs in a little butter until they got little crunchy bits on them before adding the other ingredients. I served it over hot buttered rice. The kids liked this okay--they ate it but I can't say for sure that it'd be a make again recipe. Best part about this recipe is it's cheap to make and it's great for kids who want to make something for dinner on their own. Read More

I tried this recipe recently, and liked it. It tastes good the first day, but definitely tastes better the next day! Waiting until the next day allows the flavors to 'mellow'... Read More

This tastes just like when my southern Mother said we were having Beanie-Weenie's for dinner. Loved introducing a memory to my children, No, it's not lobster, but it's some good beanie-weenie's. Read More

Franks and beans is a recipe I depend on when I'm extra-tired at dinnertime or if I'm just too broke to buy meat any more expensive than hot dogs. I have made this version a couple of times and I think it's pretty good. It tastes like BBQ'd beans. It's easy and I made it even easier by using dried parsley flakes instead of fresh. I also put in a Tbsp. of dried chopped onion. Also I would suggest keeping the heat down VERY low just so it barely bubbles and stir it fairly often to keep it from sticking to the bottom of the pan (I also advise to use a large pot rather than a skillet to make stirring easier). It comes out rather thick and cooks quite awhile so that's why frequent stirring is important. It is a very filling recipe and is good with the shredded cheddar cheese on top. Read More

I've made this several times now and using vegan ingredients and the intensity of flavor from garlic worst. sauce etc. makes this so satisfying. I add a scant bit of cinnamon not enough to taste it but to help meld the flavors. I love this with grilled (vegan) cheese! I think it would be fantastic as a slow-cooker dish. Read More

Really Good. I had to take my closet wallpaper down so I wanted something really easy to make. I did put this in the crockpot for 3hrs on low use fresh garlic and used 2 - 16oz cans of pork and beans. I put on top of jasime rice. What really sets this apart from others is the tartness you get from the cider vinegar. The Best beanie-Weenies Ever! Read More

Good flavor, although it seemed like there were too many weenies, and not enough beanies in the mix..... Read More

Made exactly as is. I liked this pretty well the first time I made it, possibly because I was just in the mood for something like this. My brother had been making beans & hot dogs, and I hadn't had that for a while and was getting the urge. However, the second time I didn't quite like it as well. I think the vinegar and Worchestershire sauce are a bit much, and despite a couple of others saying they were exactly like Beenie-Weenies, I don't think so. But it's super easy and gets points for that too. Read More
