Delicious Hot Dogs to Make and Enjoy This Summer

I’ve got to say, when I was looking around for recipes to share, I was surprised at how many different ways that folks have come up with to enjoy the good old-fashioned hot dog!  One thing we do a lot of the time is make a chili dog – in the oven!  I place the buns in a 9×13″ dish, stuff the buns with the frank, top with no-bean chili and shredded cheese, and baked (covered in foil) until everything is warmed all the way through.  Then I remove the foil and bake a little longer to melt the cheese and crisp the tops of the buns.  Everyone loves it.
