My idea for this recipe came from an old cookbook of West Virginia Recipes, originally published in 1974, called Mountain Measures.

Of course I added other ingredients that I had on hand to come up with this version, but the results were really amazing. My husband remarked how good they were without my even asking if he liked them.

Beans & Hot Dogs are always a winning combination in my book, but when you add ginger ale, ginger snap cookies, & bacon with brown sugar, mustard, & liquid smoke that takes them over the top in flavor.

I used both Butter Beans & Pork N Beans 4 added fiber
