Franks and beans were one of my favorites as a kid, though I called them hot dogs and not franks. I guess you could serve these as a side dish…. but, I wouldn’t. And some people call them beans and franks, but I think the hot dogs should get top billing!
I have two rules about this dish: first, you can’t have too many hot dogs, and second, save eating most of the hot dogs for last. Sad is the day when you get to the bottom of the bowl and all you have left are beans!
Also make up a batch of my fire-eater campfire beans!
