Beans & Franks
January 17, 2014
A simple recipe that is perfect over a campfire. It's been a staple on camping trips since I was young and it always seems to come out when the weather gets a bit colder. A meal that definitely sticks to your ribs.
Don't be afraid to make it your own. I've used all sorts of hot dogs and I've even thrown in a bit of bacon, Jack Daniels and BBQ sauce from time-to-time when I'm feeling adventurous. It always turns out great.
6 Hot Dogs (American style) (sliced)
1 Onion (chopped)
1 clove Garlic (minced)
800g Baked Beans (ham sauce)
3 Tbl. Brown Sugar
1 Tsp. American Mustard
Slice the hot dogs. Chop up the onion and garlic. Heat a fry pan or cast iron pot over the fire with a bit of oil. Fry the onions, garlic and hot dogs until the hot dogs start to get a little brown. Add the baked beans, brown sugar and mustard. Stir over the fire until everything is hot and mixed thoroughly. That's it!
We usually eat it with a bit of bread or toast, but it works just as well without it. If it's too sweet, use less brown sugar and add more mustard. If it's too savoury, do the opposite. Enjoy!
