I have been making this meal for about 28 years as a quick, "when I am tired and don't want to fuss" go to meal. I am still surprised at the response I get, when the kids (27-15yrs) ask what is for dinner and after telling them, they say, "Yes!". It is easy, but gives a hearty, home cooked feeling to it.

    Meanwhile, put the beans in a large casserole dish or pan. Add brown sugar, mustard, garlic and onion to the beans and mix. When the hot dogs are ready, add them (with the browned butter and all) into the beans. Cover with a lid or foil and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 35- 40 mins. Until bubbly.

    While the dogs and beans are baking, you will make the rice. Bring the 4 cups water, 1 Tsp salt and 3 Tbsp butter to a boil. Add 2 cups of rice, then stir just to mix it in. (hint: this is the only time you can stir the rice until you serve it) Bring the rice to a rolling boil on high heat, uncovered When you start to see the rice on the top of the water, without water, you will then cover the rice and turn the the temperature down to the lowest setting. Do not lift the lid. Then after 20 mins, check the rice by bringing a spoon down to the bottom of the pan/rice and see if it is mushy or dry. If it is dry, it is done.
