Great Recipe from the Great Depression

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.
