Yum! I've done something like this with bagels but bread works well too! This is such a great idea, especially considering you can never buy the same amount of hot dogs as buns (silly, right?). I substituted a vegetarian hot dog for the Veg Swap game. For extra condiments, I added a little ranch and avocado. Next time I think I'll use 1 and 1/2 hot dogs per sandwich to cover the whole thing.

These are wonderful! So simple and tasty! A nice alternative way to serve hot dogs. Thanks for sharing.

My kids like these sandwiches. I never thought of adding hot dogs to a grilled cheese sandwich before, but this went over really well with the kids.

I halved this for myself, and made it on a homemade cheese roll. I left off the ketchup, but added some dill chips. Tasty sandwich!

I had to make this twice because.... The first time I made it I used whole wheat bread because we don't eat white bread anymore and I used bratwurst instead of hot dogs and DH applied his sliced onion condiment; neither of us liked this very well, and never having had these growing up -- we might be too old! lol DH is so intrigued by the simplicity of the recipe and that we like hot dogs, he made them again tonight with these changes: he soaked the bread in egg as you do with French toast, added BBQ sauce to the ketchup, and he fried the hot dogs and the completed sandwiches in butter. These changes did it for us and this will be staple lunch fare around here! Thanks Starrynews. Made for Spring 2010 PAC.

I made this recipe on 4/6/10 for my lunch and for " Soup-Salad-Sandwich "event in the Cooking Photo Forum.I sort of made the recipe as it was written ;), Instead of toasting the bread, it was made sort of like a grilled cheese. Except for grilling and adding some onions, the recipe was made as written. It's hard to believe that something so simple could be so good. Thank you for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

My mum used to make these all the time when I was a kid. Never with the cheese though. The cheese is a wonderful addition. I can't believe how it has been since I had one of these. I enjoyed it very much. I put mine on my GF countertop grill/press to let the cheese melt a bit. Yum!

This was the perfect lunch for a busy day! I think toasting the bread makes the sandwich. I put the cheese over the hotdogs & melted it under the broiler beforeadding the toppings (personal preference). I also added fried onions to the topping (along with some mustard & relish). So simple, but so good!

And I thought my husband was the one who discovered them! But he uses 2 slices of toast and 4 hot dogs. I like mine with mustard but he likes them just like in your recipe.If I'll tell him I reviwed this he'll ask for some!
