I made up this dish back in the early 1970s when I was down to very little food in the house. Since it's combination of barbecue sauce, hamburger, hot dogs and beans, this one-skillet meal makes both children and adults happy.

"I omitted the parmesan cheese because my son doesn't like it and I only added one large can of baked beans. We enjoyed this very much. It was quick, tasty and filling."
