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).

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb hot dog (10 to a pack or adjust recipe accordingly)
  • 10 hot dog buns
  • 10 slices American cheese
  • 10 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 20 teaspoons pickle relish
  • 10 pieces aluminum foil (12 x 12 pieces)
  • catsup (to taste)
  • mustard (to taste)


  1. Spread each Hot dog bun with 1 t. mayonnaise. Place one piece of American cheese in each bun and then place one hot dog on top of cheese. Spread 2 t. pickle relish on top of each hot dog. Wrap each hot dog combo in foil, crimping the ends and edges.
  2. Oven: Bake for 30 minutes in a 350 degree F. oven.
  3. BBQ: Bake for 20 minutes over low heat turn every 10 minutes.
  4. Campfire: place over low coals, turning frequently for 20 minutes.

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!

I am giving this 5 stars for the sheer brilliance of the idea! I know we will love them! We all adore hotdogs in our house and I look forward to trying these. I will re-review when we have had them.
