Hot Dogs and Hamburgers go together like peanut butter and jelly, RIGHT? When we light up the grill to make burgers we always throw on some Dogs too, we cannot resist! Sides always include Cowboy Beans, it's just a requirement. IDK why. Well , yes I do because it they are soooo darn good!
This recipe really started on a day I was making cowboy beans and no bacon (GASP- I am pretty sure that is a sin) to be found in the house! Don't you just hate when you are missing an ingredient?? I had been to the store a bazillion times already that week and vowed to not go back. Gotta get creative when that happens.
My son was having some boys over for hot dogs, hamburgers and swimming. I had so much to finish doing, going back to the store was not happenin'! And you know I had vowed! I decided I would try using hot dogs, they were good for beanie weenies when the kids were little. By golly we were having hot dogs and hamburgers, so it goes with the "THEME.
First Time I can ever say I was glade I didn't have BACON!
They actually were delicious! A New Recipe is Born! Gotta LOVE when that happens!
Here's how to make them!
In a Ninja 3 in 1 Cooker (this has a stove top feature) or skillet fry onion and hamburger meat until almost done. Drain if needed and add hot dogs. Fry until hot dogs hot some color. Note: I used lean ground round and did not need to drain.
(Now if you fried in a skillet - Transfer meat to Crock Pot and) - add in beans and all the ingredients and stir.
Put on lid and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours!
Once they are done, all those flavors come together to create sweet smokey deliciousness! I like to top a serving off with a few slices of grilled hot dogs for good measure!
Here you have it deliciousness ready to be gobbled up!
