This has been a favorite in my house for a long time.

Hot Dog Pie

2 (8 ounce) cans pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup shredded cheese (provolone works best)
1 (10 ounce) package hot dogs, sliced
1 tablespoon grated parmeasan cheese
1/8 teaspoon black pepper, if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  1. Unroll one of the crescent dough tubes and separate triangles.
  2. In a 9-inch pie plate, press pieces together to form a crust.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine sliced hot dogs, 2 eggs, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese and black pepper, if desired.
  4. Pour into crust.
  5. Unroll the second crescent dough tube and cut into long strips.
  6. Crisscross strips to form a lattice top; flute edges.
  7. Bake uncovered, 30-45 minutes, or until knife inserted near center comes out clean.
  8. Cool 10 minutes.
This is very versitile. You can substitute any cooked meat--or tuna. You can add some veggies (broccoli, cooked carrots, chopped spinach) and you can use any cheese you like. Swiss works good with cooked chicken.

If you feed more than 4 people, you may want to make two...leftovers heat up quickly in the microwave.

Curly dogs!!! Take the dog, slice into it length wise but don't cut all the way through. Then slice into segments about 3/4" long, but don't cut all the way through, leave at least 1/8" meat. Drop in a deep fryer. they will open up and curl. When they are done they will fit nicely on a hamburger bun. Put your relish, onions etc in the middle and enjoy. We used to serve them this way at a little grill shop we ran.

My dad used to slice the weiners length-wise, insert cheese, and then wrapped them with partially cooked bacon held on with toothpicks. Then he would either bake them or grill them. Served with baked beans they were to die for! Not great for the cholesterol but they sure were good.

I don't think the method of preparation (boiled or fried) is as important as the variety of hot dog. To my taste the best commonly available frank (in my area) is the Boar's Head brand natural casing beef frank slowly fried. To wit, to my taste, there's no method of preparation that'll make an Ocscar Meyer delisch.

Hot dog goulash ( my grandmothers recipe)
about 8 hot dogs cut into 1 inch pieces
4 or 5 large potatoes cut into chunks
large union cut into strips
water
salt
paprika
basically boil until potatoes are done and create a thick sauce ( with chunks of potato still left to eat)
may sound kinda funky but it actually works

also, hot dogs cut up in pea soup, or cur up in chili

with hot onions
fry onions and garlic in oil
add a little kechup, vinegar, tobasco sauce, salt, pepper ...

Mom used to do the same thing! She would pan fry (low to med-low) the bacon just enough to half-cook it and render out most of the fat ... then wrap around a weiner that was split most of the way through and inserted with a bit of mild cheddar - wrapped with the bacon (held in place with toothpicks) and baked until done. Served with pork-n-beans heated out of the can, sauteed diced onions with a can of pork-n-beans and a big dollop of ketchup and a teaspoon of brown sugar, or baked beans.

Another one of those comfort foods from my childhood .....

You could...

Grill them (preferred)
Roast them (over hot flame)
Boil them (in a pot of water)
Spin them (rotesserie style)
Pan Fry them (aka sear)
Stir Fry them (in a wok)
Deep Fry them (any way you please)
Nuke Them (Microwave)
