Hot Diggity Dog!

Of all the simple to make foods that have been shown on whatsinmypot, I was shocked to think hot dogs weren’t featured anywhere.

I mean hot dogs! A fun, summertime food that is so easy to make, whether you are feeding yourself or a large group…fried, steamed, grilled or broiled, a piping hot dog in a warm roll is a tasty treat no matter how you top it.

I topped mine with a thin layer of mayo, shredded lettuce and salt & peppered tomato slices. Then, of course, mustard…a definite hot dog must.


And to accompany the dogs were some Bush’s Original Baked Beans.

One thing I will admit is liking to get the “prize” of the little lardish mystery bit in a can of beans. No one else really wants it. This can was extra intriguing when the mystery bit looked like bacon, not to be confused with Beggin’ Strips, which also look like bacon. I thought I was going to win with this fancy-looking bit of lard. Nope. The three sections on the right dissolved instantly when the chunk was placed on tongue. That fourth section was so odd. Odd enough to make me reference Beggin’ Strips once again. The fourth section was almost unchewable, but I think with persistence it would have gone down the throat. I didn’t stick with it long enough to completely know for myself because the flavor was bland.

Regardless, Bush’s Baked Beans are a tasty canned bean to satisfy a need for a quick side item. Just don’t eat the mystery bit!

And here is a video that I want to share not only because BBQ Pit Boys is a cool name, but because the video is as sedating as it is motivating. You’ll have to watch the video to see what I mean. In the end you are definitely hungry.


And a neat camping trick with hot dogs…

All you need is ten minutes, a knife and some roasting sticks. Cut the ends of each hot dog into quarters leaving about 1-1/2 to 2 inches in the middle uncut. You want to leave enough uncut to stick the fork in. Roast the dogs over the fire or hot coals in a grill. The “legs” will curl out as the hot dogs cook. You can also do them in the kitchen at home over a hot stove burner.

Last but not least, here is a recipe for barbequed hot dogs  that may be the change of pace your dogs are looking for, but you better have quite a few hungry mouths awaiting…

  • Barbequed Hot Dogs
    • 3/4 C. chopped onion
    • 3 Tbsp. butter or margarine
    • 1-1/2 C. chopped celery
    • 1- 1/2 C. ketchup
    • 3/4 C. water
    • 1/3 C. lemon juice
    • 3 Tbsp. brown sugar
    • 3 Tbsp. vinegar
    • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 Tbsp. yellow mustard
    • 2 – 8 count packages of  hot dogs
    • 16 hot dog buns, split
    • In a saucepan over medium heat, saute onion in butter until tender.
    • Add celery, ketchup, water, lemon juice, sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and mustard; bring to a boil.
    • Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
    • Cut three ¼ inch deep slits on each side of hot dogs; place in a 2-1/2 quart baking dish.
    • Pour the sauce over the hot dogs.
    • Cover and bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until heated through.

  1. I never thought of adding lettuce and tomatoes to a hot dog. I usually think of those with hamburgers, but I shall give it a try sometime.

  2. Brilliant ideas as always. Love your innovative meals. Forgot one thing though – ketchup!

  3. Marvo – the shredded lettuce added a fresh, crunchy feeling that was unlike that of all hot dog toppings which are ooey, gooey and messy.

    Raymond – Don’t worry…once my hot dog was finished with the photo op, ketchup jumped in to slaughter the clean scene!
