Vintage Hot Dog Recipes

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


  • 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


  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.
