Mini Hot Dogs Recipe

Updated on February 6, 2013

Mini hot dogs recipe

i must first begin by telling you that I don't like hot dogs, but I cannot resist those little min-hot dogs. There is something about the love affair with the hot dog and the toothpick. And we all have a natural affinity for dipping. There are many different recipes for these little cocktail hot dogs. I am going to share my favorite one that I made up or should I say modified. Whether the sauce is sweet, salty or hot most of us love to dip. I am a cheesy kind of person so I made this dip with lots of cheese. These little doggies are great for the Super Bowl coming up and a great little appetizer for company. The recipe is easy to make and fun to eat which is a winning combination.

      Hi Carol... not a great fan of wieners really but every once in a while I like a good feed... this is one I think I will be trying.

      We have one of those carts that runs around the city I used to live in called "The Yodelling Sausage" Now there is one thing I always look for when I get there. Habit has it to get three of the monster ones. Eat one and bring two home to be savoured later... lol... ok I have confessed...

      Hugs and Blessings from Canada

      Oh these look delicious. Makes me hungry reading through your recipe. Definitely voting for the hot spicy sauce with cheese. Bet these would be great in a crock pot.

      Those dips will also go well with chunks of cheese, too.

      I'm not a big fan of hot dogs, either, but I think any of these sauces would make it easier to choke them down. : ) These look really yummy. Thanks for sharing!
