Had a hankering for franks n' beans so when I saw this recipe and photos, went right to the grocery store for the fixings. Used 2 cans Bush's bourbon & brown sugar baked beans (with added ketchup and mustard) in 13x9 baking dish, pkg of 7 Hebrew National beef franks, and shredded cheddar-jack. As suggested in some of the reviews, I pre-baked the tater tots for extra crispiness. Turned out yummy! Not exactly healthy, but every now and then you just gotta have some ooey-gooey comfort food. Will make again, it's a keeper and you can do endless variations.
Made it for Christmas dinner and it was well received by adults and kids alike. Nothing beats fancy beanie weenie for comfort food. :) Will definitely make again. Most of it was gone which is saying something with as much food as was brought.
i loved it, my wife thought it was ok -- i used vegi dogs instead of hot dogs and vegetarian baked beans. the second time i added some chili and onions since my wife likes chili dogs and she liked it much better
Easy and delicious! My son helped make it and eat it. :)
I have been looking for easy crockpot meals or recipes that would do well in crockpot. This definitely fit the bill. Did a large can of generic country style baked beans generic hot dogs, tater tots, and cheddar cheese. Only two things I did different was using the crockpot on high for 3 hours and I layered a half of the beans hot dogs and then tater tots then layered same way again with cheese on top and it was awesome. Love recipes with potential to change and make your own and this definitely is one, only tip I have to make better that I will do next time is crisping the tater tots it was awesome with them just put in there but crisping them I believe would just put it over the top.
Everyone in my house loved this. A great substitute for having no buns. Instead of regular hot dogs I used chili cheese dogs, beans I used the B&M bacon and onion, I then squirt on some siracha all over. Instead of tots I ended up using crispy crowns. Sprinkled on some salt, pepper, peprika, and topped it off with shredded cheese. Sooooo yummy!!
Good and easy.
Here is deal, I was skeptical and thought my husband looked interested turned out I liked it and he was like OK I will eat this because you made it. Sort of funny, I probably would not make it again because of that reason. He said if you made hot dogs, baked beans and tater tots on the side I would love it.
We make this recipe often in our house. It is fast and simple to throw together, satisfies a comfort-food craving, and it can be easily increased to feed a crowd when the gang's all here. Ore-Ida crispy crowns make for a crunchy tot topping, but I am ok with regular tots that break apart when mixed in...yum! I always use the 28 oz large can of Bush's Maple baked beans and never have any leftover. I have used regular hotdogs, keilbasa, bratwursts, cheddarwursts, and lil smokies depending on what was in the house. Here in upstate NY we have a local favorite known as a coney which is a white hot dog made from pork and veal--not to be confused with the downstate NY chili-sauced coney dog--which is also excellent as well.
I made this a couple weeks ago. It was something fun for DH and myself to eat. Kind of made us feel like kids again. I bet it would be really good with a splash of BBQ sauce in the beans. I'll put this one in my keeper file because I think there's all kinds of ways to play with this. Thanks for sharing!
