Any hot dog lovers out there? I have a secret love for hot dogs. I know, how food snob of me. And I have been in the processing plants that make hot dogs. I know what the meat is, but I still love them.
If any of you made sloppy joes last night, you probably have leftovers like me? I have just the thing to make with your leftovers. Oven baked coney dogs!
Then spread some mustard and sweet pickle relish on the sides and bottom of the bun. I used Dijon mustard but any will work. And omitting any ingredients will work too. Boo doesn’t like pickle relish so his just had mustard and mayo.
Then put your hot dogs, polish sausage, brats, or whatever you have in the buns. I lined a 13 x 9 pan with aluminum foil to make clean up easier and put the hot dogs in the pan.
Top each dog with a heaping spoonful of leftover sloppy joes. If you don’t have sloppy joes, use canned chili. It will work just the same.
Sprinkle heavily with some Colby-jack cheese. Again, if you have cheddar or some other flavor, it will work too.
If you are an onion family, sprinkle the top with diced onions then.
Cover with foil and bake on 350 degrees for 45 minutes. And then wait patiently. You will begin to smell the coney dog ingredients all melting together.
What you pull out of the oven will make you feel about 10 years old again.
Hurry, go make them. You know you are wishing the screen was scratch and sniff.
