Easy Bean and Cheese-Topped Hot Dogs

This recipe was very much like a chili dog but with a healthier spin.  I was not sure we were going to like them but so far everything we have tried off the Weight Watchers official site has been so good, this was as well!

Serves 8



  • 16 oz. canned baked beans with pork, drained
  • Tbsp, choppeduncooked onion(s)
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened dill pickle(s), chopped
  • 2 tsp.Dijon mustard
  • 8 item(s) light beef or pork hot dog(s)
  • 8 item(s) reduced calorie hot dog bun(s)
  • 1cup(s) Weight Watchers Cheese, cheddar, shredded, low fat
  • 12 cup(s) uncooked scallion(s), chopped


  • Heat grill to high.

  • In a medium bowl, combine beans, onion, pickle and mustard; microwave on high until heated through, about 1-2 minutes. Cover to keep warm; set aside.

  • Grill hot dogs until browned in spots, about 3-4 minutes. Grill buns until grill marks appear. Place a hot dog on each bun; top each with 2 heaping Tbsp bean mixture and 1 Tbsp cheese. Return hot dogs to grill; cover and cook until cheese melts, 1 minute. Serve garnished with scallions.

  • Serving size: 1 topped hot dog each is 7 points
