This one has to be the cheapest and quickest way to feed three to four hungry kids, and it’s also mighty tasty.
I call it ‘Hoboo’ hot dogs because on seeing this dished up on her plate for the first time, my daughter told me that hot dogs were for Hoboo’s. She actually ate her’s the quickest, funnily enough.
Including the crusty bread, the ingredients for this shouldn’t cost more than a fiver.
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 x can of hot dogs or frankfurters, chopped
2 x pouch of microwaveable rice (long grain is best, but whatever you have will work just as well)
2 x can of baked beans
1/2 can of sweetcorn
1 x chicken stock cube
2 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 a small of block of cheddar cheese for grating
Heat a large frying pan on a low heat and put in a glug of olive oil.
Put the pouches of rice into the microwave and cook for 4 mins.
Put your hot dogs, baked beans and sweetcorn into the pan and cook gently on a low heat, adding a little salt and pepper halfway through. Boil your kettle with enough water to make a cup of tea.
When the rice is done, empty the pouches into the pan and mix together thoroughly with the hot dog mixture. The sauce will start to be absorbed by the rice, but that’s ok.
Crumble your stock cube into a cup and pour in the boiling water. Stir it until all the lumps of stock have melted an empty into the pan, along with your Worcestershire sauce.
Cook for a further 2-3 minutes on a medium to high heat allowing the rice to absorb the stock and Worcestershire sauce, then serve with crusty bread and butter and garnish with the grated cheese.
*If you have any left (which is unlikely), you can put some into small tupperware containers for the kids lunch the next day. It still tastes good cold.
