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.

Wonderful flavour. Following the advice of previous reviews, I let the hot gogs simmer for about 10 minutes and added a little ketchup.

Had never tried beer in beanie weenies before; felt the need to simmer longer. Came out great. Thanks!

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

Fantastic!!! My husband and I both liked it. I used chicken hot dog and I couldn't taste the difference between them and the beef. It also had less fat.
