I totally altered this recipe. My mother used to mix just the beans and hot dogs but I knew I wanted to add something else. I mixed all the ingredients except onion because I didn't have any into a casserole dish and I microwaved it til cooked through. I served it with brown bread. I really liked it with the applesauce and mustard. It gave it a sweet and sour taste. I gave it four stars because I'm not fond of hotdogs but the kids liked it. Very good.

This one has too much going on in it. The cheese and mustard flavors seemed out of place. Applesauce made it runny. Son picked out hot dogs and husband could hardly eat.

My five year old said yum! five times, which rarely happens. I mixed up a box of Jiffy corn bread mix and put that on top of the beans THEN layed shredded pizza blend cheese on the top of that and mixed it into the cornbread just barely. Forty minutes and it made a casserole that fed three with leftovers. Very easy weeknight meal.

I highly recommend using Bush's Steakhouse beans with this meal. The flavors all end up complimenting each other really well.

I liked it, my boys didn't. I did things a little differently- I sauteed a whole, small onion along with two large cloves of garlic until tender then added the thinly sliced hot dogs. Cooked until all was lightly browned then took it off the heat. For the sauce/bean portion I used one regular sized can of original recipe beans with pork, 3/4 cup homemade chai spiced applesauce, 1 tablespoon each Dijon style mustard/ketchup/maple bbq sauce and a little liquid smoke. Whisked it all up then stirred in the hot dog/onion/garlic mixture. Topped with cheese. I likely won't make this again since I'm the only one who will eat it ;) But if there were a next time, I wouldn't use the bbq sauce, liquid smoke or cheese. I'd keep the rest as I mentioned the same. Served with cornbread muffins.

Made it for the first time tonight while suffering from an Beanie-Weenie craving, and it was good! I used turkey franks and left the cheese off to bring the fat down, and dried onions instead of fresh since that's what I had. It did turn out soupy, however, so I think next time I will make it on the stovetop and let it cook down a bit - that's the reason for the 4 instead of 5 stars.
