Baked beans and hot dogs are a natural combination. If you don't like hot dogs, make the dish with ham, spicy sausage, or turkey ham. Or use chicken or turkey hot dogs. If you want to avoid the preservatives in many brands of hot dogs, choose uncured hot dogs. 

Beans and hot dogs are easy on the budget as well. Some mustard, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and ketchup add extra flavor. The bean casserole is slowly baked at a low temperature to bring out flavors. 

Add cornbread or biscuits and a salad for a tasty family meal.


  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 16-ounce cans baked pork and beans in tomato sauce (about 5 cups)
  • 6 hot dogs

Steps to Make It

  1. Mix together onion, ketchup, molasses, brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Add beans and stir to blend.

  2. Spoon the seasoned bean mixture into a 2-quart casserole and bake at 300 for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

  3. Arrange the franks on the beans and bake for 30 minutes longer.

Recipe Variation

  • Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of chopped cooked bacon to the beans along with the seasonings.
