We take franks and beans to another level with this spiced baked bean and cheddar cheese topping. It’s an easy, tasty riff on chili dogs.


Canned baked beans with pork

16 oz, drained

Uncooked onion(s)

3 tbsp(s), chopped

Unsweetened dill pickle(s)

cup(s), chopped

Dijon mustard

2 tsp(s)

Light beef or pork hot dog(s)

8 item(s)

Reduced calorie hot dog bun(s)

8 item(s)

Low-fat shredded cheddar cheese

½ cup(s)

Uncooked scallion(s)

½ cup(s), chopped


  1. Heat grill to high.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine beans, onion, pickle and mustard; microwave on high until heated through, about 1 to 2 minutes. Keep bean mixture covered to keep warm; set aside.
  3. Grill hot dogs until charred, about 3 to 4 minutes. Grill buns until grill marks appear. Place a hot dog on each bun and top each with 2 heaping tablespoons bean mixture and 1 tablespoon cheese; return to grill and cover for 1 minute to melt cheese. Serve garnished with scallions. Yields 1 hot dog per serving.
