If you haven't watched any of Clara's Depression Era Videos on You-tube, then you are in for a treat. This Italian grandmother shares some of her families recipes, during the depression. Many of the same recipes, she shares - my own family used when times were hard. Or maybe they became a family favorite. I know that some of these are just "comfort foods" that bring back good memories of growing up, or eating at my Grandma's house.
Fried Potatoes and Hot Dogs, my mom would fix regularly. I think it was a meal stretcher - she'd throw in this economic meal in the middle of the week, open up a can of pork and beans or corn and we had a tasty meal. Now Clara refers to this meal as "The Poor Man's Meal".

My version of this, is similar but I don't add the tomato sauce (neither did my mom) I use Hebrew National hot dogs - or Costco dinner franks. (or kielbasa, Italian sausage or hot links) You could even use Spam, if you like it. (I never have) Of course if this is a FOOD BANK MEAL, with food items you've been given, any type of "frank" will do.
I use onions and garlic - lots of it.
And remember, if this is a FOOD BANK MEAL - you cannot afford to be a Food Snob if the food is free.
