pizza dogs

Aug 12, 2010 by

i think i may have mentioned this before, but i was a picky eater growing up.  dear ol’ mom was nice enough to keep some things on hand for me, including freezer chicken patties (which i can prepare several ways!) and hot dogs.  this is one of my favorite ways to have a hot dog.  recent trips to the dog of nashville have inspired me to revisit some of my favorite ways to eat a dog.

this recipe is for four hot dogs, multiply as needed.

  • four hot dog buns, toasted
  • 1/2 c pizza sauce
  • 4 hot dogs (i prefer koegel’s viennas, serve the curve and the crunch! thanks to mom and dad for delivering to nashville :))
  • italian seasoning
  • 1 c shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 c shredded parmesan cheese
  1. pre-heat broiler.
  2. in a medium frying pan, cook hot dogs in pizza sauce, stirring sauce constantly.
  3. place hot dogs in buns, spooning additional sauce on top.
  4. sprinkle with italian seasoning.
  5. top with mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
  6. broil until cheese is brown and bubbly. (i used a 9×13″ glass pan lined with foil for easy clean up.)

  1. Your other favorite version of this was to just put a slice of Velveta cheese (cut in half diagonally) on top of the vienna and broil till melted. Whalla!! Cheese dogs!!!

      Yah, I definitely love cheese dogs, too! I don’t know if those are fancy enough for here, though. 🙂
