HOW TO MAKE A DELICIOUS CHILI CHEESE DOG - RECIPE SECRETS

 

Casey and my husband Jerry enjoy chili cheese dogs.  They like the foot long Chili Cheese Dog from Sonic.  I decided to see if I could make a better chili cheese dog.  If I could, hopefully, my son and husband would look forward to eating it at home.  I had a huge dutch oven full of my Homemade Chili.  I had some chili leftover that was perfect for making a Chili Cheese Dog.  I decided to kick the hot dog up I would fry it in a skillet with a little butter.

Growing Up, We Had Fried Bologna

 When I was going up, we had fried bologna often.  We would melt a little butter in a skillet and fry it.  I loved smelling it.  Since hot dogs are similar to Bologna, I decided to fry my hot dogs in a little butter.  Frying bologna smelled the same amazing way as frying hot dogs when I was a kid.  I do not buy bologna.  When I buy hot dogs, I purchase 100% Kosher Beef Dogs, and I use wheat hot dog buns.  I know hot dogs are not the best for you.  I also know frying them in butter is horrible for you, but it was a treat, and it turned out incredibly delicious.  

Toast The Hot Dog Bun

After toasting the hot dog bun with a little butter and in the skillet with the hot dog.  The buttery goodness on the hot dog and bun was delicious.  Next, I loaded it up with homemade chili; shredded cheese and onions chopped extremely small.  This Chili Cheese Dog was a hit.  My son even said he enjoyed it more than a Chili Cheese Dog from Sonic.

  1. Diane Roark,

    You have shared a great recipe for the dogs. I actually have two dogs at home as family pets, and i am now planning to give them Chili Cheese Recipe, because they would love it. Your efforts are appreciated.

  2. These look so good and I am not even a huge fan of chili with hot dogs, as much as I like both separately, but still am so wanting to try them. I might have to buy hot dogs this weekend, as I have ingredients for chili, but don’t have hot dogs right now. Thanks Diane and have a great weekend 🙂
