The Whistle Pig

One 1/4 pound hot dog
1 slice cheddar cheese, cut into 4 equal strips
2 slices of bacon, partially cooked

Make a slit into, but not through, the hot dog, starting and finishing approximatelky 1/4 inch from each end. Stuff the cheese strips into the slit in the hot dog. Wrap the partially cooked bacon strips around the hot dog, securing with a toothpick at each end and one in the middle. Grill or broil the hot dog on all sides until bacon is crip and cheese is melted. Serve on an extra special hot dog bun with condiments of choice.

TWo ways that I forgot are (and this is myfavorite, but can only be had with an open fire) skewere with a freshly cut willow or alder branch, and roast in a camp, or cook fire. Must include good freinds, children and good times. The second method is to cook ordinary pork and beens, or doctored baked beans in a sauce pan, with the hot dogs whole, and mixed in with the beans.

But yeah, I like all of the other suggestions a whole bunch too.

Most importantly, try several different brands of hot dogs. Each tastes different. You have to find the brand you like. For instance, I recently tried an "economy" brand called Cher-Brand, from one of our local supermarkets. It was a great taasting hot dog, in natural casing. I also like Volwurth's (expensive), and one of our local butcher's freshly made varieties. Hebrew National brand is good as well. In San Diego, I really like "Wrath Blackhawk" brand. I don't like Oscar Meyer, and Ball Park. There is a realy cheap brand whose name escapes me right now, but that is sold at Wal Mart that is bad as well. And yet, I have a nephew that will only eat Oscar Meyer.

The point is, every brand has a different taste and texture. You have to find the ones you like best.

Oh, and another favorite way to eat hot dogs for me is to eat a cold hot dog while sitting in a comfortable chair, watching something on the tube, and stripping the "skin" from a skinless hot dog with my teeth, and then munhcing the hot dog. I've been doing this odd thing since I was a young child. It's just a thing I do.

Never said I was normal.

I love hot dogs with left over spaghetti sauce on them instead of chili.
I make pigs in a blanket with little sizzler's and refrigerated flaky biscuits..splitting the biscuits in half then wrapping around

tdi, can you stand, yet another, hot dog idea?

This may sound like an odd combo, but I like a hot dog w mustard & a side of kasha varnishkas - or a potato knish with mustard.

Or a hot dog & pierogies on the side. I keep the frozen Mrs. T's on hand from time to time. There are lots of recipe ideas here, like this Perogie & kielbasa dish. You could use hot dogs in place of kielbasa. (Think sausage/peppers/onions sammich):

Mrs T's Pierogies Food Services
Click around the site. There are some pierogie & hot dog casserole ideas, i.e. sauerkraut, dogs & pierogies, etc.)

Coney Island Casserole
Hormel Recipes Site > Recipe Details

Click around the Hormel site. There use to be a silly chili dog recipe -- chili, onions, cheddar cheese, hot dog served on a hamburger bun. (Reminded me of a Tommy's burger.) Serve with potato wedges (or chili cheese fries) on the side.

Heres one thats different; put your hot dogs in a blender, add bake beans and blend. Then spread this on a rye bread. Sound weird, but good. You can use cocktail rye and serve at a party and no one will queses what it is.

Nor do I think I would want to tell them

That's different alright. I wonder how it would be as a dip? I may have to find out one of these Sundays watching the games on TV.
Do you cook, blend and serve warm, or blend and then nuke? Not that it would have to be cooked....

Actually the hot dogs taste better if grilled or broiled. I've always had it cold but warm sound like a very good variation.

The mustard and peanut butter would combine to give an oriental flavor to the dog. Might not be bad.
