DH was craving beanie-wienies and asked if I would make him some for dinner. I thought,"How boring-what would Kittencal do?" I did a quick search and found your recipe. YAY. Your recipes never disappoint. I used hickory smoked garlic (that I had already smoked in my stove-top smoker), and also added some thin sliced red/yellow/orange mini-sweet peppers to brown with the onions & bacon. I kept the specified amount of bacon and hot dogs, but halved the rest of the recipe for the two of us, with plenty for left-over lunches. DH is a very happy man to have smokey gourmet beanie-wienies. Thanks for another winner, Kitten!
This was another winner; but it is Kittencal's recipe and they are all great. I prepared as posted but backed off on the brown sugar to a little more than 3/4 cup and that to me turned out perfect. I prepared this in memory of John. Take care.
