Sweet and Sour Hot Dogs

I was telling Linsy how much I've been enjoying your recipes, and she asked if I had any to share. I thought I might have a few, so she invited me to join in. Here's one of my absolute favorites that my mom would make growing up. Not only is it easy to make, it's also got the healthy stuff you "have" to eat, and has the added bonus of having hot dogs so even your kids will love it!

Sweet & Sour Hot Dogs

9 oz. pineapple tidbits
6 hot dogs
2 tbs butter
1 medium onion
1 green pepper
1 bouillon cube
1 1/2 cups hot water
1 tbs corn starch
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce

Drain pineapple tidbits, saving the juice for later. Slice the frankfurters, and cut up the onion and green pepper into strips. In skillet, melt the butter. Add the onion and the green pepper, cover and cook over low heat for 5 minutes.
Dissolve the bouillon cube into the hot water. Mix the corn starch and brown sugar and pineapple juice, vinegar, soy sauce, and bouillon/hot water. Pour over vegetables. Cook & stir until thick. Add franks & pineapple and heat. Serve over rice.
