Hot Dogs: An Easy Dinner or Lunch Idea!

Okay — I love hot dogs! I know I LOVE a lot of things — but that’s because I really do!  Hot dogs are no exception! They’re so good, incredibly easy to make, and easy to jazz up! One day 2 weeks ago a friend and I were searching for easy dinner ideas, since I was getting done with class late, and he had a long day at work. Voila. Ball Park turkey dogs (45 calories each) were in my fridge just starring at me and ready for me to open up and attack. I told my friend to drop by Publix after work and to pick up WHOLE WHEAT buns (120 calories per bun)  and some of Publix’s homemade chili (which is in the Deli section)!  I had some red onions in my fridge and some kettle baked bbq chips in my pantry.  The end result after pooling our goods was pure satisfaction.

He thought he could finish three since the turkey dogs were 45 calories each (guess what — he was full by two!)

Do you love hot dogs? How do you make yours? Living in the south we have the good fortune of being able to grill a meal during any season — so we grilled them. But sometimes, when I’m lazy or busy — I’ll microwave them. Growing up we religiously boiled them!
