For me, this seems like the quintessential dish of the Great Depression. It has the meat-replacement component (hot dogs), a carb (potatoes), and onions. What better combination of flavors and it’s so simple to make!


  • Organic olive oil
  • 2 cups organic white sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 1 cup organic yellow onion, cubed
  • 1 package of organic all-beef hot dogs
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  1. Heat your olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add in your potatoes and onions and fry for about 5-10 minutes, or until your potatoes have browned.
  3. While your potatoes and onions cook, slice your hot dogs into small discs.
  4. Add your hot dog discs to your potato and onion mixture and cook.
  5. Serve.
