In my house, hot dogs are a staple. They serve as a quick lunch, an afternoon snack or an easy meal in a pinch. We’ve covered them in corn meal, topped them with slaw or mixed them with beans...we grill them, pan-fry them, boil them and even cook them in the microwave, but we have NEVER thought to cook them in the oven!! Who knew that you could make delicious chili-cheese dogs in the oven?
