Most of the people at our 4th of July party ate hamburgers yesterday leaving us with an over abundance of cooked hot dogs. Any ideas on ways to eat hot dogs other than the normal way in a bun?

I have two ideas. One my kids loved and that was to cut them up in macaroni and cheese. You might want to warm them a little first! The other is make a fried pot. I don't know what to call it.. I cut up potatoes and onions and fried them like normal after the potatoes are almost done then add cut up weiners and I also liked to throw in some corn. You could add a variety of ingrdients too...

we cut them up and eat them with mac and cheese. we got a very large package of hot dogs on sale at costco and have to think of ways to use them up too. we also just eat them plain with home made french fries (no bun).

The only way my husband will eat macaroni cheese is with macaroni and cheese.

LOL well then make it for yourself with the hot dogs, and give him some without the hot dogs. Problem solved.

I will probably do that but I was hoping to get some different ideas.

Slice them up and stick them in macaroni. Or, get tortillas and refried beans, and cheese. put some beans in each toritlla as well as cheese. Put the hot dog on top, wrap it in tortila, then bake. Mexican Pigs in a blanket!

I have had that with just some chili and cheese and the hotdog rolled in the tortilla.

We usually cut them into bite size pieces and put them in a crockpot with baked beans.. It becomes like a casserole dish. No bread needed.

We do have a lot of baked beans left too. I made them and someone else brought them too, so we had way too many, I actually ate them for breakfast this morning.

I think I am going to have to go with the crowd on this one. I like hot dogs chopped up and put in to macaronie and cheese myself. I think they would also go really well with beans, not just BBQ beans but Navy beans as well, in like a navy bean soup, or maybe just navy beans and franks. I think that would be very good.

I've got some great ideas. You need to get a big can of pork and beans and then slice a couple of hot dogs like you would a cucumber. Add the dogs with the beans and you've got a filling meal that everybody enjoys. Also, you can get some cresent rolls and place a cut in half hot dog inside and make pigs in a blanket. Enjoy!

We wrap ours up in crescent rolls. I buy the crescent roll dough at the store. I take a piece of cheese and lay it on each triangle and then I roll each hot dog up in a crescent roll. Then just bake until the roll is golden brown. They have bigger crescent rolls out that fit around a hot dog better than the regular ones.

My mother always cut hot dogs up and mixed with mac and cheese to make it a main dish. You could also cut them into bite sized pieces and saute with onion and bell pepper. I usually do the saute with sausage, but it would work with hot dogs.

We used to slice it, and cook with baked beans, tomato sauce and put in pasta.

Let's see. A regional eatery serves them cut up on a hamburger bun, drenched in chili, covered with cheddar and chopped onions. Mighty tasty. They are good in mac and cheese, with or without chili. They are good in beanie weenies.
