1 lb. ground beef
1 28 oz. can baked beans, original recipe (Not pork and beans and not maple flavored or some such nonsense.)
8 all beef hot dogs (Don't mess around with the chicken/pork/beef hot dogs. That's not just for this recipe, that's for always.)
1 14.5 oz. can tomato sauce
1 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
10 servings of mashed potatoes (I know I don't need to tell my family not to use instant mashed potatoes, but in case anyone else was thinking it . . . don't.)
Brown ground beef and drain; add baked beans, cut up hot dogs, and tomato sauce.
Pour mixture into large casserole dish. Spread mashed potatoes over the top of the bean and hot dog mixture.
Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of that. Bake uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes (until heated through).
Serve for your family and be the hero of the day!
