A Chili Cheese Dog is delicious with these tips. Why eat fast food chili dogs when you can have a delicious homemade chili cheese dog?
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.
