I threw this together when I needed to use up some chicken dogs before expiration. I happened to julienne the potatoes, and it "accidentally" ended up looking like French fries! This is fun to eat- you can use any condiments that you would put on a hot dog or fries. I prefer the hot sauce, DH just likes ketchup. And of course cheese makes everything better. Go wild and post up your versions! This can be pretty healthy if you use low or no fat/sodium dogs. I'll bet even veggie dogs would work!
- 4 low-fat chicken hot dogs or 4 turkey hot dogs
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 10 ounces yukon gold potatoes
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- salt and pepper
- cayenne (optional) or seasoning salt (optional) or red pepper flakes (optional) or bell peppers (optional) or taco seasoning (optional)
- cheese (optional) or ketchup (optional) or mustard (optional) or hot sauce (optional) or relish (optional) or sour cream (optional)
- Parboil potatoes until they are starting to tender, slightly soft with a fork poke. Cool and julienne or dice. (Juliennes make it look like the “fries.”).
- Cut hot dogs into “coins” about ½ inch thick.
- Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet. Add garlic and onion. Sauté over medium heat until onion starts to soften and brown, about 5-7 minutes.
- Add hot dogs, salt and pepper to taste, and any seasonings you are using. Sauté over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until hot dogs are browning.
- Add potatoes. Sauté over medium heat for 10 minutes more, until potatoes are golden and heated through.
My DH is an incredibly picky eater, and he gobbled this right up. It was easy and a great new use for hot dogs. I used a tad of seasoning salt and cheese.
