Vintage Hot Dog Recipes

Take a trip back to the '50s with these odd hot dog recipes.

Ingredients

  • 6 hot dogs
  • 6 bacon strips
  • Assorted fillings: cheese strips, dill pickle, chopped onion
  • 1 can tomato Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard

Steps

  1. Cut a slit along the hot dogs lengthwise, without slicing all the way through. Fill with assorted fillings of your choice.
  2. Wrap each stuffed hot dog with a strip of bacon (secure with toothpicks if needed). Place in a cold skillet and then fry on medium heat until the bacon is crispy.
  3. Drain off the fat, and add the tomato sauce, sugar, and mustard. Stir occasionally and simmer for about 10-15 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 6 hot dogs
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup corn flakes

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking dish with foil and set aside. Crush corn flakes into crumbs.
  2. Skewer each hot dog, and the score the surface by spiraling from top to bottom.
  3. Dip them in ketchup and coat generously with the corn flake crumbs.
  4. Place on the lined baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes, until crispy and golden brown.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 3 cups hot beef stock
  • 10 hot dogs
  • 3 hard boiled eggs, halved
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced

Steps

  1. In a small bowl, combine cold water and gelatin. Pour the mixture into hot beef stock. Whisk well, until well combined.
  2. Arrange hot dogs, eggs, and celery in a loaf pan. Slowly pour the gelatin mixture to fill the pan. Place in the fridge to chill for about 4 hours, or until completely set.
  3. Once firm, quickly invert the loaf pan onto a serving platter. Garnish with sliced cucumber.
