Try Marrow's Sloppy Southern Dog, posted yesterday, topped with this simple dish:

Stovetop "Baked" Beans
Makes about 12 hot dog topping servings or 4 side dish servings
Prep: 5 min., Cook: 15 min.

Game Plan: Prepare Friday night and reheat in a cast iron skillet on the grill or keep warm in a crock pot. Add a touch of water or beer to thin, if needed.

1/4 cup diced sweet onion
1 tsp. oil
1 garlic clove, pressed
1 (28-oz) can baked beans (I buy Bush's Original)
1/4 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp. yellow mustard
1 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
2 tsp. hot sauce
3 cooked and crumbled thick-cut bacon slices
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Saute onion in hot oil in a medium saucepan 8 minutes or until translucent. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Stir in beans and next 5 ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until hot. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.

The Extra Point: Serve as a weeknight side dish with grilled or baked chicken. Have leftovers? Layer up warm shredded chicken, warm beans, and shredded Cheddar over tortilla chips, and broil until cheese melts. Top with sliced green onions and cilantro. Serve with BBQ sauce and sour cream.
