{March 9, 2011}   Baked Hot Dogs

Recipe adapted from: Oven Hot Dogs

Healthy?  No.
Are you sure?  Yes.
Not even a little bit?  Not even in your dreams.


American Cheese

Hot Dog

Shredded Cheddar

I only like cheese on my dogs, so I stopped here — but you can add chili or whatever else your heart desires.


  • 8 hot dogs
  • 8 buns
  • 8 slices American cheese
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • mayonnaise


  1. On each bun:  spread mayonnaise, layer sliced cheese, and add a hot dog.
  2. Squish all of the hot dogs in a 13×9 baking dish.
  3. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over the top.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.


  • I only had 6 buns left, so I used an 8×11 dish.  Just adjust according to what you have — you want them to be really tight in the dish.

The bottoms stayed crispy enough to keep it together, but the tops were ooey gooey good.
