Watch this delightful video of 91 year old Clara chatting about growing up during the Great Depression of the 1930s, while frying up some hot dogs and potatoes, a dish she calls her Poor Man’s Meal.
My mom used to make this dish, too. We called it simply Hot Dogs ‘n’ Potatoes. She cut the potatoes a bit bigger, and left out the onions (probably as a concession to me), and used her electric frying pan. Served with ketchup, salt and pepper.
