Oven Baked Hotdogs

I love hotdogs……….I know they arent the healthiest food in the world, but we dont eat them often, just once in awhile. Today we tried them made a little differently….baked in the oven and they were awesome!!!!! So I had to share the recipe with you.

Here is what you need:

Package of hotdogs

Hotdog buns



Can of chili

Grated Cheese

Onion, chopped into small pieces

This is what you do:

Preheat oven to 350, line a glass baking pan with aluminium foil(the size of the pan will depend on how many you are making, an 8×8 pan fits 4 and an 9×13 pan fits 8)

Line the insides of the buns with mayo…..I know you are saying why, but once you taste them you will know, it adds flavor to the bun, trust me!!! Next add relish and stuff them each with a dog.

Next top the dogs with chili. I used homemade chili I made last weekend in my crockpot and had frozen but you can use your favorite canned one too.

Sprinkle with grated cheese and top with chopped onions. Put as much or as little of these toppings on as you desire.

Loosely top with aluminium foil and bake in the oven for 45 minutes, I took the foil off with a couple minutes left and turned the oven to boil just to toast the top a little.  Now these hotdogs have to be eaten with a fork and knife, they are too messy to be eaten the normal hotdog way….but that is what makes them special!

Dont they look good??

You could even try these variations: add mustard or substitute the chili for salsa!
