Absolutely stunning. I never expected my life to change the way it did after my first bite. The first night I made hot dog pie, I ate the entire thing, and baked 2 more just to satisfy my hunger. I am currently planning to propose to a dish of hot dog pie, but I am still unsure. I may be 700 pounds, but the hot dog pie is helping me lose weight, at least that’s what I believe. We must praise the hot dog pie, and I definitely recommend it.

Absolutely awful. Made it exactly following the recipe and my kids and myself hated it. No point in the pie crust and pan. It becomes a soup that doesnt hold and resembles nothing close to a pie. My kids ate cold hot dogs instead.

Made as written. We ate enough to satisfy our hunger and threw the rest away. Couldn't even eat the leftovers for lunch the next day.

I've made this pie twice now. Based on personal preference, I leave the beans undrained, skip the mustard and use 1/2 - 1 tsp of mustard powder instead; and add a few spices such as chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder; and about 1/2 tsp salt as it can become too sweet (depending on the brand of beans). Otherwise, you can substitute Heinz 57 sauce for the ketchup to cut down the sweetness and add some spice.It can feed my fiance and I for 2 or 3 dinners, which is well appreciated, as we tend to work rotational shifts.

Made this last week and can only suggest that you don't drain the baked beans. It doesn't say either way on the recipe and so I did and it was kind of a dry meal.

Fast recipe, esp. if using the refrigerated pie dough. I did add 1/2 chopped onion to the meat while frying and 1 T. chili powder to add some kick . I made 2, 1 we ate and the other one I froze for another meal.

I have to say when I read the title, I was a little hesitant to make this. However, it was a huge hit in our house with myself, my husband, and our 3.5 year old and 1.5 year old. This was easy to make and uses ingredients that are usually on-hand in our household, I added some onion and bell pepper to the meat while it was cooking to use them up. We all loved the taste of it, too! Simple, quick, and tasty means one happy mom!

I made this for dinner years ago when my aunt was over for dinner. When her brother passed away months later, she remembered this dish and asked me to make several pies for for the memorial service. The recipe was a huge hit with the all-adult crowd.
