Bean 'n' Franks Day

Beans and franks, or franks and beans, are similar to pork and beans but use sliced hot dogs instead of pork with the baked beans. Other ingredients like onion, mustard, brown sugar, barbecue sauce, herbs, and spices are sometimes added. Beans and franks can be a side or main dish. While baked beans have been around since the American Civil War, it's unknown when hot dogs began being added to create beans and franks. The dish is usually whipped up at home, but Van Camp's does make Beanee Weenees, a canned version.

How to Observe Bean 'n' Franks Day

Have some beans and franks! You could make some or have a can of Beanee Weenees.
