I know that most of you are starting to feel like it's SPRING after that wicked Winter up North, but you do realize that SUMMER is fast approaching, right?
I'm thinking that this year, I'm going to give these a try on the grill instead of the oven ... somehow I just KNOW that it will work perfectly!
So go ahead, give yourself a break and make something simple that will make the family happy!
1 package of hot dogs. Any type will do
1 can of no bean chili (yes, I would like to say that I don't use this stuff, but heck, some days, convenience pays off)
1 bag of cheddar cheese, shredded
1 package of hot dog buns
Now that you have the difficult list of ingredients down, lets get cooking!
Steam/fry/grill hot dogs until cooked. I've used my bamboo steamer, my grill press pan, the Panini press, skillet with water and the grill ... whatever you choose will be just fine! BUT, please, please, please, never, ever, ever EVER boil your dogs. I grew up on boiled hot dogs and hated hot dogs for YEARS until I learned all the other options to cooking them. Sad, I know!
Heat the chili on low heat.
If you want to keep clean up to a minimum, line a baking dish with tin foil. Place buns in large baking dish. Open each one up a bit and put the dog in … push down as you will need room on top.
Top each dog with some chili (as little or as much as you’d like) and then liberally spread each with cheese.
Toast under broiler until the cheese is melted and bubbly. If desired, you can top with onions, tomatoes, peppers, whatever, before serving.
Scoop out with a large spatula or spoon as they will be really gooey but oh so dang good! Enjoy!
