    Cowboy Dinner

    Ingredients for two people:

    3 smallish potatoes
    1 onion
    6 hotdogs
    1 can MapleBeans

    Process:

    Warm-up large pan
    Slice potatoes and place in pan with melted butter or lard - stir it up. When potatoes are starting to brown, then slice onion and place in pan with potatoes. Stir up as required to cook evenly.

    Warm-up second pan
    Slice hotdogs and place into "dry" pan. Pour can of MapleBeans over and cover with lid to steam in own juices. Stir once in a while.

    Set the table
    Pour 1/2 of the potato / onion into each plate. Cover with warmed hotdogs and beans.

    Enjoy!

    You guys have no idea what you are missing. When I make a homemade batch of these beans I will be sure to post it on here so you can try it out. However, don't expect it to taste as good as it's a Canadian food eh!
    Thanks again NaeKid for the video and sharing with everyone our tasty supper. :)

    There's no pork in those beans and the sauce would be too thin if you just bake with maple syrup. :)

    Me too but dang they sound better. I need to find me some of those ... The hubby likes hotdogs so maybe I could get him to eat a bean or two this way ... :ignore:

    Cuz the recipe sounds like it would be good for the kind of cold nights we are having right now and quick and easy ... Nothing tastes as good as "quick and easy".

    The best part about "CowboyDinner" is that you can throw anything together and make it up. I have made it with frozen-cubes of potato (hashbrowns) fried with diced onions, fresh minced garlic and bacon as the base and regular baked-beans (or pork-n-beans) and sausage for the top. I have poured spices into the mix for something a little hotter and I have poured a ketchup/mustard mix into the beans while cooking. You could also substitue cooked rice for the base instead of using potato ...

    You can make your own sauce for your own homemade baked-beans as well if you like, beer or wine or JackDaniels mixed with some tomato sauce, a little bit of maple-flavouring, some brownsugar and toss in a little heat from a couple teaspoons of chipotle, bake with some farmer's sausage (or mennonite sausage) ...

    Let your imagination go wild when you are making up your own style of CowboyDinner and show us what you come up with, eh? :wave:

    I have the same concept in my prep arsenal. I buy lots of cans of baked beans when on sale; maple, onion, regular… whatever they have. I use the canned beans as a base for their extra sauce. There is always a ton more liquid in them that really required. Cook up beans from the dry storage and add them, making for twice the amount. Rice, noodles, FD just about anything can be added! They are extremely versatile and can handle just about anything being added to them. I have made one regular size can stretch for three meals by mixing in stuff. A must have, in my opinion, for any preppers storage shelves.

    No, not a fan of Terry Brooks.

    (And) not a unicorn (but you are right, the smaller picture does look like a unicorn) but a black demon horse ... long story short... it looked like my husbands horse the first time we put a saddle on him, something about his eyes. lol
