These dogs are made with beer and brown sugar, but are always a big hit with our friends and family. They should simmer on the stove for at least 60 minutes. We usually put them in a slow cooker when serving to keep them hot. Use toothpicks to spear these little bit-sized delights.

  • 2 (16 ounce) packages beef frankfurters, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 In a medium saucepan, place the frankfurters, brown sugar and beer. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer at least 1 hour.
