This is my Dad's famous recipe. He used to make it for my sister and I when we were little and we both loved it! Use kosher hot dogs for the best flavor.

this is a great recipe for kids to help out in the kitchen. By the way the alcohol is burned off during the boiling process for those moms who are worried about the beer thing. I cut the hot dogs with an egg slicer (I imagine that the kids would love to do that part). the only thing that I did a little different was add 1/4 cup ketchup for zip. great for tail gates potlucks and bbq's!

I made this for more than 10 people. Some who love beer loved it and I didn't care for it (I don't like beer). Since the recipe author said she and her sister loved it as a child I gave them to my kids but they spit them out. So I gave it a 3 star review because of the split reactions from my people. This might be a great tail gate recipe for people who love drinking beer. Read More

It was a can of beans mixed with some hotdogs. I don't really see what the beer or honey added. Sorry. Read More

Everyone loved this (except one daughter). Next time I'll add more baked beans than the recipe calls for. I also cooked the hotdogs longer in the beer like others had suggested. This is such a super easy recipe to make. Read More

I don't feel as if the beer and honey added any flavor to this recipe. I'm giving it 3 stars because it still tasted good. Read More
