For those of you who are having cookouts and family gatherings this weekend this recipe for Hot Dog Bundles from Mr. Food is a really good and easy way to serve franks and beans to a crowd. They're more along the lines of a hot dog sloppy joe, although the beans would be delicious on their own, it's kind of fun to serve them together on a bun. Sprinkle them with cheese and you've got a stick to your ribs filling meal. I made this in my 10 inch oven with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom and 18 on the lid. Bring them to a simmer and let them bubble away for 30 minutes. Let the beans sit a while once you take them off the coals so they can soak up all the sweet and tangy juices. Add more hot dogs if you want to boost the meat to bean ratio, nothing too fancy but a tasty way to kick your standard franks and beans up a notch.
