“HOT DOG!” (Insert excited voice here)

Yeah yeah, I know hot dogs have been around a while, but they’re by far, one of my favorite quick meals to throw together for a weeknight, or simply warming up for kiddos during a bbq at our house.  Even as much as I love my husbands beef tenderloin, any time we cook that for a group, you can usually find me right with the kids, eating a hot dog right along with them.

Now, I love a good plain hot dog.  But when you look at it like a blank canvas, the options are ENDLESS.  So I’ve compiled 6 hot dog recipes, for this entire week, to give you a good starting point when you want to dress it up a bit!  Get ready… each day is FILLED with delicious hot dog goodness.  Today, we will start with the “Buffalo Chicken Hot Dog.” Tomorrow… the “BLT.”
