Scurvy Dogs a Simple Meal for Buccaneers on the High Seas.

A Scurvy Dog a Day Keeps Davy Jones Away!  For the Buccaneer on the go we give you Scurvy Dogs.   A tasty treat that is easy to fix and will prevent Scurvy.  Without further adieu, here is how you make it.

Scurvy Dogs Ingredient List

  • Hot Dog Buns
  • 1 Package of Hotdogs
  • 1 Pound of Ground Beef
  • 1 Small Can of Beans
  • 1 Small Can of Green Chillies
  • 1/2 Small Onion
  • 1 Small Can of Chopped Fire Roasted Tomatoes
  • 1 Small Can of Tomato Paste
  • 1 Tablespoon of Chilli Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon of Cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon cayenne
  • Pepper to Taste
  • 1 Cup of Cheese
  • Cilantro as needed
  • 1/4 Lime for the Scurvy Dog and 1/4 Lime for the Beer
  • Corona Beer

Scurvy Dogs Cooking Directions

In a pan brown Ground Beef until thoroughly cooked. 

To the pan add the Beans, Fire Roasted Tomatoes, Onions, Green Chillies, Tomato Paste, Chili Powder, Cumin, Cayenne, Pepper and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to simmer and stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

Cut Scurvy Dogs lengthwise and cook in a skillet with butter on medium heat until done.  Remove the Scurvy Dogs and set aside.

Place Hot Dog Buns face down on skillet and toast until golden brown.  Turn off heat and remove buns.

Place the Hot Dog Bun on a plate with the Scurvy Dog on top.  

Spoon on Chilly Mix, squeeze 1/4 lime wedge over the chilly mix, sprinkle with Cheese and Cilantro. 

Serve with a Corona Beer and Lime Wedge to keep the Scurvy at bay.

And for those Buccaneers that are going to be privateering on the blue for extended periods without access to refrigeration, you can plan ahead by canning your Scurvy Dogs.  If canned correctly, they will last 1 or 2 months without refrigeration.
