ISO different ways to prepare hotdogs

Ok so, my husband loves hotdogs. He grew up with basically the same things for dinner. He's used to having hotdogs almost everyday. Growing up, I liked hotdogs more than burgers. Well, while we were dating, it was during the summertime and I got "hotdogged out" of hotdogs. Is there any ideas on how to spruce up the hotdog so I'm happy and my husband?

Gosh I will forage and put almost anything on the dogs. Love kinchee. Of course kraut, cole slaw, pickles, chopped olives, and of course all the usual stuff like ketchup, mustard, chili, cheese, you know the wroks.

Love Chicage style dogs - Google for recipe.

Then of course I love my chili dog casserole.

How about an Italian Dog

Pig in a blanket is good. I like the raw altogether with a cup of tomato juice.

I love hot dogs.

One thing the kids (and I) always loved is hot dogs cut up in macaroni and cheese or baked beans.

You can also make a great appetizer with hot dogs. Mix together a small jar of mustard and another of current (or apple or grape) jelly in a saucepan and heat, stirring frequently until the sauce is smooth and bubbling. In the meantime, slice the hot dogs diagonally, and add to sauce. Let simmer for a while until the dogs cooked.

Have you done the Pigs in a Blanket, where you wrap the crescent rolls around the hot dogs and bake them on a cookie sheet?

I was googling for something similar to a recipe I have at home for hot dogs with baked beans and came upon this page: Hot Dog Recipes - Recipes with Hot Dogs

Should keep you busy for a while

I like cut up hot dogs fried up with some bacon and onion and then some baked beans added. I have a pic on here somewhere. Nice quick lunch or dinner served on a couple slices of bread. I eat hot dogs raw, too, on a bun with some mustard. It tastes better to me than a bologna sandwich. And of course with the various toppings like mentioned.
My favorites are Smith's skinned, made right here in Erie, but maybe for a "changeup" you could buy a different brand... foot longs, ballpark franks, kosher..... Maybe instead of a regular bun, try those New England buns like HoJos used to have. Those add a nice twist.
I love hotdogs probably as much as your husband. Even took 'em to school as a kid in grade school like I mentioned above. On a bun with mustard.
Sure with I still had those old metal lunchboxes......
