Foiled Hot Dogs

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Likkel

These hot dogs are great for quick dinners, on the BBQ or for camping...and are always well received! Because they are cooked in foil, they have a handy wrapper to hold them without getting your hands messy. Very good! (I cut the calories in half by choosing turkey or non-fat hot dogs and light or non-fat mayo and cheese slices).

I made these for the kids, their friends and a handful of parents and they all loved them! Even those who don't normally like hot dogs enjoyed these. I especially liked that they were neat to eat and clean up was a breeze. We are definitely going to have these again!
