What can you do with a hot dog?

  Everyone knows that there is nothing better than a grilled hot dog, on a nice soft bun, with all the fixings, but what else can be made using hot dogs? You would be surprised by what I found!

Things To Try...

Hot dogs and Baked Beans

Slice the hot dogs and mix into a couple of cans of baked beans. Baked in the oven until it is hot. Serve with a vegetable and you have yourself a meal!

Hot Dogs and Eggs

May not sound all that good but it is tasty and makes a quick, warm breakfast that kids love! Slice the hots dogs and fry them up. Scramble eggs and then mix the hot dogs with the eggs. Add cheese if you wish.

Hot Dogs and Sauerkraut

This is a popular dish in my household. Slice hot dogs us and mix with a package of sauerkraut. Heat in the oven until hot and serve with boiled potatoes. Yum!

Hot Dogs and Macaroni and Cheese

Who has not had this one? Slice hot dogs up and add them to a prepared package of mac and cheese...I prefer Kraft.

Hot Dogs and Potatoes

Try this one may be surprised...Slice up hot dogs, an onion, and a green pepper. Mix with some frozen home fries and bake in the oven until the fries are golden brown. Makes a great lunch meal.

Pigs in a Blanket

This is easy and cheap that will make any child happy (or adult)! Take a can of refrigerated crescent rolls and a package of hot dogs...usually it works out 1 can of rolls=enough for 8 hot dogs. Wrap a hot dog inside of the crescent roll. Bake on a cookie sheet until rolls are done. Serve with cold salads and you are sure to have a winner.

Soup and Hot Dogs

You can add sliced hot dogs soup made out of noodles, vegtables, and chicken stock. The noodles could be replaced with white rice if you wish. If you are using beef hot dogs, use beef stock instead of chicken stock.

Hot Dog Heart Attack

Slice a hot dog down the middle but not all the way through and cook. Place a piece of cheese in the slit of the hot dog when done and wrap with a piece of fried bacon. Good with or without a bun...

Hearty Pasta Salad Dinner

Use packaged pasta salad and made according to directions. Cut up beef franks, green bell peppers, and a tomato and add to prepared pasta salad. Add a little extra Italian dressing to taste. You could even add chunks of cheddar cheese.
