Quick & Easy: Baked Chili Dogs:
We love hot dogs around here and there’s no better way to top a hot dog that with a generous scoop of chili and cheese. Don’t eat bread? You can still get your Chili Dog fix with my low carb chili Dog Casserole!
We had a family cookout recently and hubby brought home huge family packs of hamburger patties, hot dogs and buns. We only used about half of the hot dogs during that cookout, but the kids love them and I didn’t worry too much. I knew they would get eaten.
I’ve got a great way to prepare chili dogs in bulk. It’s so easy, you’ll wonder, “Why didn’t I think of this before!”
How to Bake Hot Dogs in the Oven:
Really! It’s as easy as:
1. slicing your dogs
2. stuffing them into the bun in a baking dish
3. topping with a generous amount of chili and cheese
4. baking at 375 degrees ’til everything is hot and bubbly (8ish minutes if you warm your hot dogs up 1st!)
Quick tip: I recommend heating the dogs up in the microwave for a minute or two before stuffing them into the buns. It will speed up the baking time. That way you are only waiting for the cheese to melt/
(You don’t really have to slice your hot dogs in half the way I did- I just have a fear of kids choking and always do. Anyone else do this?)
Enjoy your chili dog!
