I was going to give that a try, but it looks like my yeasties are dead. Are you using Google translate to understand those pages? Works pretty well, but can be quite funny on occasion.

Mom used to steam, then slice almost through lengthwise. Then she'd spoon on mashed potatoes, top with dabs of butter (actually margarine, we didn't do butter, too expensive) and paprika, for stuffed hot dogs.

In my dad's family (Quebecoise), they called them saucisse, (which I guess they are!) and served them for breakfast with eggs and other breakfast foods (steamed).

Also good sliced into mac & cheese.

I sometimes like to interject a food memory. We were vacationing in old Quebec city, and went to a brew pub down in the warehouse district by the river. The place was called Lenix or something like that. When I asked for the menu, the waitress said, "le hot-dog". OK. Well what followed was just short of obscene! There were these spikes on a steamer (picture: very phallic) and the gals would impale a thin baguette on them and steam it. Then they'd squirt mustard in the tubular hole (the only choices on the menu were the degree of heat in the mustard). Then they'd wiggle this foot long, skinny hot dog into the baguette. All this amid much ribaldry, especially among the men, of course. I thought we'd die laughing. My French is pretty bad, but I could still translate enough of the commentary for my husband, but really, it didn't take much translation. I don't know if I've ever laughed so hard over a lunch. Vive le (or is it la?) Hot-Dog!

Add them into scalloped potatos, you can add them as they are or grill them first to put some color on them.

We've used the large "dinner-style" hotdogs (4 to a package I think) in place of corned beef in a boiled dinner and they can also be substituted for kielbasa in other dishes.

Let me guess "BOGO" buys?

Tube Steak!!!

They can be used as a non-specific meat filler in most any soup or stew since they don't carry a lot of flavor on their own.

I sometimes make a side dish using diagonal sliced, pan fried hot dogs finished off with a balsamic vinegar/brown sugar glaze.

Make a cheese fondue, cut steamed hot dogs into 4 pieces each, give each kid a bamboo skewer and stand back... (fire hoses for cleanup are optional)

The four ways I cook hot dogs (other than adding them to thinks like beans or mac and cheese) are either grilled, boiled, pan fried in butter or deep fried (called rippers, because of the way the skin splits). When I make rippers I like the dogs with a cooked relish, usually diced jalapenos and onion, with a splash of balsamic vinegar. Then there is toasting the buns, not toasting the buns, sometimes no bun, just the hot dog on a plate with mustard. Chili dogs are always an option, too. And I think I remember MsMoffet here slicing them and cooking them with a red sauce over noodles. Oh, and there's always raw on a bun with mustard. Better than bologna! lol

For a twist on chili dogs, cook the dogs IN leftover chili. They pick up the chili flavor as they plump up.

Eat them with the chili or put them in a bun with some chili and minced onions and shredded cheese.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Split them lengthwise and fold them open. Add a little oil to a skillet on medium high. Fry them on both sides until starting to color and add a medium onion thinly sliced. Stir frequently until the onions are soft. Add a 14.5 oz can of stewed tomatoes and your favorite hot sauce to taste and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve over rice.

If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!
