Hot Dog Cheesies

Dear nostalgic readers,

This is a variation of a recipe I remember making as a kid.  We used the Betty Crocker recipe cards and I remember being very careful not to burn them under the broiler! 

This recipe will get people talking! 

If you are only making a few, you could use a toaster oven. 

Hot Dog Cheesies
One of each item per person. 

Hot dogs
Sliced cheese

Bring the hot dogs to a boil in clean water, and then let simmer 6 - 8 minutes.  Meanwhile, lay the bread slices on a cookie sheet.  Spread or drizzle mustard down the middle lengthwise.  When the hot dogs are fully boiled, remove to a plate with a paper towel to absorb excess water.  Lay on the mustardy bread.  Drizzle or spread melted butter down the sides of the bread alongside the hot dog, on either side.  Place a slice of cheese over the top (if it is not processed cheese, it will topple like a see-saw - that is okay!).

Broil for 2 - 3 minutes, approximately 4 - 5 minutes under a broiler and/or at 550 degrees F.  

Serve with hot soup and additional mustard if desired.

What recipes do you remember making growing up?

Toasting in winter,

Mrs H
