I came up with this when I needed to use up hot dogs and wanted something different. Great party or game food.

My 9-yr old son asked me not to make this again until he's 89 years old - in other words, never. We all ate it, but the leftovers went in the trash. I don't know why, but it didn't work out for my family.

YIPPEE! This recipe is for ME! Is a GREAT comfort food recipe! Took previous reviewers advice, true! Used wholemeal pita and passata for sauce too! For a quick eat on the run! Love food when made is fun! THANKS!

Absolutely love this! Have made the recipe exactly as posted several times and don't have a desire to make any changes. Tastes like a homemade chili dog...a welcome change to hot dogs on buns with canned chili! Absolute kid (and DH) pleaser. Thanks for posting.
