This recipe brings back a lot of memories of childhood for me. This is one of the meals my dad came up with, and I love it. Both versions (ground beef and hot dog) are delicious. I was appalled when I saw a company was making their own version of canned Special. I tried it, and believe me, it does not even come close to the taste of this. I hope that if you try this, you will like it as much as my family does. I love you, Daddy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground beef and drain grease. If you are using hot dogs, slice them into little chunks and heat through.
  2. Add beans and brown sugar and simmer for at least 5 minutes.
  3. It is that easy! Enjoy! :).
