“I don't know where this recipe comes from or if it's similar to something known by another name but this was always a huge comfort food when I was younger. My mom always served it over boiled potatoes - don't be afraid to mash it all up together!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium size pot, cook onion in hot oil until soft, but not brown.
  2. Pour in liquid from green beans (not the beans yet). Add the flour one tbsp at a time until the mixture thickens, but is still liquid.
  3. Add about 3 tbsp of the tomato paste and let cook for a few minutes, stirring to mix well.
  4. Add the beans and hot dogs. Stir well, cover and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Stir periodically and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Depending on the consistency, you can add some more tomato paste while it's cooking. However, this should be fairly thick, not too runny (although that's personal preference, I suppose =).
  6. Serve over boiled potatoes and mash it all together really well!
