Baked beans and hot dogs are a natural combination. If you don't like hot dogs, make the dish with ham, spicy sausage, or turkey ham. Or use chicken or turkey hot dogs. If you want to avoid the preservatives in many brands of hot dogs, choose uncured hot dogs. 

Beans and hot dogs are easy on the budget as well. Some mustard, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and ketchup add extra flavor. The bean casserole is slowly baked at a low temperature to bring out flavors.  

Add cornbread or biscuits and a salad for a tasty family meal. This baked beans and hot dog casserole is another great mealtime choice. It's baked with a biscuit topping and some cheese.
