One Pot Weeknight Beanie Weenies

Total Time

I'm almost embarrassed to post that I make beanie weenies for dinner, but it is just so fast. It really hits the spot on a cold and rainy (but very busy!) weeknight. Excellent with a grilled cheese sandwich or side of chips or cottage cheese!


  1. In large sauce pan, boil hot dogs in water for 1 minute.
  2. Discard water, slice hot dogs into bite-size pieces and return pan to stove on medium heat.
  3. Combine all ingredients in pan and allow to heat through.

Definitely, no need to be embarrassed. I have a baked beanie/weenie recipe that ROCKS the house. Some day, I will post it!!! It taste even better the next day, that is if there are any leftovers. Take care, all!!!

Don't be embarrassed for posting it, I should be embarrassed for searching for it! I knew it had to be something more that just beans and hot dogs, I figured on the ketchup but didn't know what else. Your recipe is delicious! I made it just as you wrote it and my family devoured it! Simple and inexpensive, exactly what I was looking for. Thank you.

I made this last night for supper because I was short on time. It was SUPER easy, quick, and filling--not to mention CHEAP!! I did make a few changes though.....Instead of boiling the water with the hot dogs, I sliced 4 of them up and put them in the skillet. After they had started sizzling and browning a bit, I added the other ingredients to that same skillet. Then I just covered it and left it on low heat while I finished making the accompanying Cornbread #228259 from this site. I personally don't think that 3 hot dogs were enough, but 4 was just perfect for those of us who aren't real big on just straight beans. My family gobbled it up, and we even have a serving left over for a future lunch. Thanks!!
