It seems this time of year, we are never lacking in hot dog deals. You can get them free or next to free! Cheap they are, but healthy??? That’s another story. My children tolerate them to a point, so I found a few ideas that look fun to try.
Pigs in a blanket-wrap dogs in refrigerated cressent dough and bake @ 350 degrees until browned. (oldy but goody)
Pizza dogs- Place hot dog in a bun. Slice 3 pieces of pepperoni in 1/2. Place on each side of the bun. Squeeze pizza sauce on top, sprinkle with mozzarella or provolone cheese. Heat in microwave until hot dog is hot and cheese is melted (about 40 seconds).
Hot Dog Spaghetti- Slice up some hot dogs and use in your spaghetti sauce over noodles.
Corn Dogs- make a thin corn bread batter and dip them (can put a popsicle stick in the end) and fry in oil or bake them.
BBQ Hot Dogs- cut them up in bite size pieces, warm them in a fry pan and add BBQ sauce to them.
Hot Dog Fried Rice- cut up Hot dogs, brown them in fry pan. Add to your fried rice dish. (instead of ham I guess?)
Creamed Hot Dogs- cut up hot dogs, brown in fry pan with 1 tblsp butter. Add milk and thicken with corn starch, making a cream sauce. Serve over noodles, rice or mashed potatoes.
So how do you eat your hot dogs?
