A tasty dish that combines most kid's favorites - hot dogs and baked beans. The sweet potato and the carrots in the orange puree add not only a top source of nutrients and fiber but a delicious hint of sweetness! Adapted from the Sneaky Chef Cookbook by Missy Chase Lapine.
- 4 vegetarian hot dogs, sliced (or if you must turkey or beef hot dogs-preferably with no nitrates)
- 1 (16 ounce) can vegetarian baked beans (Bush's is good)
- 1⁄2 cup orange puree (see My Take on Sneaky Orange Puree)
- 1 tablespoon ketchup (or barbeque sauce)
- Put the dogs, beans, orange puree, and ketchup (or bbq sauce) in a saucepan and heat over medium until heated through, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Alternatively, place the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl, cover the top of the bowl with a wet paper towel, and microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, pausing to stir occasionally.
- Be careful, hot dogs can be a choking hazard for children under 4.
Delicious! I didn't even notice the orange puree.
Have had your Orange Puree recipe on hand for some time now & make it every once in a while, so that part of this recipe was easy, as was the rest of it, actually! To really enjoy a recipe like this, one needs to remember to use a quality frank! Definitely a wiener winner & something to make again in the future! Thanks for this great keeper!

A classic that my whole family enjoyed! Baked beans are my oldest DD's favorite, so she was extremely excited to see what was for dinner tonight. We used barbecue sauce and Big Franks for the vegetarian hot dogs. It had great flavor and I'm sure we'll be having this recipe again! Thanks! ZWT6 LOONEY SPOON PHOODIES!
