Loaded Oven Chili Dogs

July 23, 2013
The dogs are oven baked right in the pan, piled high with onions, chili, and cheese. Genius!

Happy National Hot Dog Day! I've always been a fan of hot dogs. Well, ok, minus the 4 or so years that I refused to eat them as a kid because I swore they made me throw up once. I had a serious fear, people.

Thank goodness that didn't last long, because hot dogs are awesome! I usually eat them with yellow mustard and relish. But probably my favorite way to eat a hotdog is with yellow mustard and LOTS of sauerkraut. I usually even have some sauerkraut on the side, I love it! I only make it when Paul's at work though because he can't stand the smell. :)

These Loaded Oven Chili Dogs are tied for me right up there with sauerkraut. I'm not kidding, they're that good! This is a great way to make hot dogs for a crowd when your grilling plans get rained out. Prep them all at the same time and then stick them in the oven. Fork and knife are absolutely required with this one!

Loaded Oven Chili Dogs

7 hot dogs
7 hot dog buns (I know, I couldn't squeeze 8 into my pan)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup relish
15 oz can Hormel chili
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 onion, diced

Evenly spread 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise and 1 tablespoon of relish into each hot dog bun, top with the (uncooked) hot dog, and place in a 9x13 baking dish. Repeat for remaining hot dogs. Evenly top each with chili, then cheese, then diced onion. 

Cover with foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Oh man, I could go for one right now!

  1. I'm dying over these!!! Reminds me of Wienerschnitzel - they have the best chili dogs but they are not up here in the Pacific NW. Will be making these for sure. Thanks for joining in! Can't wait to share with you the theme for August round up.

  2. A polish girl at heart I'm all over the mustard and sauerkraut, but
    these chili dogs look pretty delicious too. Just pass me a beer and I'm
    good to go! :)

  3. This may just be the best thing I've seen all day long! Seriously it sounds like such a novel idea and WILL happen sometime this week! GREAT share!

  17. Mixing ketchup and mayo and putting on the buns before the dogs, it makes it soooo much better!
