Hot Dogs Baked Beans and Roasted Potatoes #Foodie Friday

hot dogs and baked beans roasted potato: simple living and eating

It is the day after Thanksgiving and I am sure tired of cooking, plus I need a break from turkey. Time to make my kid's favorite quick meal. Hot dogs baked beans and roasted potatoes.

This is kinda of a no recipe, recipe but I have to admit there is something really tasty about it. My mom made this same dish when I was a kid, but she pan fried the potatoes. The extra oil was tasty, but I think this roasted version is easier and healthier. 

So enjoy the begining of the shopping season, but don't forget to get some relaxation time in too this weekend.

Hot Dogs Baked Beans with Roasted Potatoes

by Diane Balch


1 package of hot dogs chopped
1 can baked beans
6 potatoes chopped 
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
Salt and Pepper


1) Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Chop up your potatoes into small cubes. Place them in a large baking dish and drizzle them with EVOO, salt and pepper. 
Roast for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are soft to a fork and lightly brown.

2) While potatoes are roasting sauté hot dog pieces in a skillet. When they are browned add baked beans and heat through.

Serve hot dogs and potatoes with green vegetable of your choice.

    Thanks for the party :)

    1. Thanks Winnie,
      It is delicious without hot dogs too.

  3. Now that's comfort food - I love baked beans with hot dogs! I hope you and yours enjoyed a very Happy Thanksgiving, Diane, and thank you for hosting!

    1. Serious comfort food LOL and lazy day food. Thanks April Happy Thanksgiving to you too.

  4. We had a very similar meal growing up with beans and hot dogs that we called "beenie weenie." Loved it and still do. Ours had plenty of grated Cheddar on top and if we'd thought of the potatoes, they would have been there too. Thanks for hosting each week Diane and I hope you and your family had a blessed and happy Thanksgiving.

    1. Oh I will have to mention the cheese idea to my daughter she will love that idea. Happy Thanksgiving Sam.

  5. Diane,
    My hubby loves hot dogs and baked beans. I would prefer the roasted potatoes. Hope you and your family had a Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks for hosting the party.

    1. Everyone has their favorites in this comfort food dish. Happy thanksgiving to you too.

  6. Hi Diane,
    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thanks for the party.

    1. Thanks Tanusree having a very restful holiday.

  7. I just wanted to thank you for not posting a turkey sandwich idea, left over turkey soup, a way to use left over dressing ... :) This looks like something I grew up with. Looks delicious!

    1. Thanks Lea Ann... I am definitely turkey overdosed.

  8. That is my go-to meal for my kids when I'm completed exhausted. It's filling and will hold off the "I'm hungry" comments for a while. Love it....

    Make It Or Fix It Yourself!

  9. I enjoy sharing meals I grew up eating with my family. It's a special way of connecting to family. And my family love anything with baked beans. Thank you for linking this to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. I look forward to seeing you next week.

  10. Your Hot Dogs and Baked Beans look like pure comfort food to me and we would just love that plate of food. Hope you are staying warm and cozy in this cold weather and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
    Miz Helen
