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.

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'...

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.

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.

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.

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!

Made this for my kids for lunch. I sauteed the hot dogs with onion prior to adding the other ingredients. I also skipped the cider vinegar and only added a few dashes of Worcestershire Sauce.
