I have been making this for 35 years. It is not the healthiest of dishes, but is a great comfort food!! I always serve this with Stouffers Macaroni & Cheese. This is a very easy meal and not many dirty dishes either!!! Your kids should love this (as do adults!!)!
Hot Dogs a la Foil
2 C. chopped hot dogs (I use a 8 hot dog pack)
6 slices American cheese (cut in little pieces)
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
3 T. chili sauce
2 T. pickle relish
1 tsp. mustard
couple dashes of garlic powder
8 hot dog buns
Combine all the ingredients, except the buns. Fill the buns with the hot dog mixture. Wrap the buns with aluminum foil. (I usually wrap 2 at a time, but for parties I wrap them individually.) Put them on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Here is the hot dog mixture in a bowl -
Placing the mixture in the hot dog buns -
Ready to go in the oven (by making it with the frozen mac & cheese I just put in in the last 15 minutes of cooking time) -
The macaroni & cheese all bubbly -
All ready to eat -
On this particular night - I also served it with cole slaw (already prepared in the bag and added Marzetti Slaw Dressing to it made several hours earlier!) -
These reheat very well as leftovers. I wrap them in plastic wrap and microwave for 1 minute. I have made these for football parties and they were a success! I can't remember if I tripled the recipe or if it was more. I just wrapped them individually and you could keep them warm in the oven on very low or turned off.
I love how Lucy puts her paw on her face while she is sleeping. I just thought of this -- I wonder what I would look like if Lucy were to take pics of me while I'm sleeping???? Horrors!!
