These kids will love, my DH is a big kid and he ate 4 of them (pig). Change the topping to suit your kids and you will have their new favorite hot dog with a twist.

oops. Forgot to rate these! I actually found this recipe when searching to post my own version of it. It is identical except my family always used hot dog buns (for the kids) or hoagie rolls (for the adults). Using hot dog buns this easily makes 6 servings. Chili sauce isn't common in my area so I have also made it with ketchup. Also I think you could combine ketchup and coctail sauce to get close to the same flavor.
