North of you in Milwaukee, we've made hot dogs (and burgers) this way for years. They're call "Butter Dogs" or "Butter Burgers". Both are delicious. The buttered and pan fried/cooked buns are what make these truly special!! But--buy butcher shop hot dogs (not a commercial brand)--better taste and quality by far!!

Yes-sir' ~ this is a hot dog. Absolutely how I remember it oh so long ago. I followed this exactly, except used "lobster-style" hot dog rolls (cut is in the middle on top instead of the side) which flattened out perfectly for browning. Yum, love the chopped onions on top. Boy, this is just perfect for a lovely Labor Day weekend. Thanks for posting! :)

I never had a luncheonette hot dog growing up. Now that I see what I was missing, this will be my only hot dog in the future. What a treat! Thanks for posting DiLo. Made for Fall 2009 PAC.

Great recipe! I love a good hot dog! While watching Paula Deen on TV one day, she fried hot dogs using butter instead of frying them in oil! Delish!!

I've made this for dinner two nights in a row now. I used to love the hot dogs from the lunchcounters of my youth, and this easy recipe fit the bill perfectly! Thanks for posting!

I have made this 3 times and it is the only way I will prepare hotdogs. I have shared the recipe with others.

This was a quick and easy meal to prepare! I only would recommend that you use a larger pan to frying/toasting the buns then when you fried/grilled the weiners. I also recommend using a good tasting weiner such as ballpark or oscar meyer because the wiener is what makes the hot dogs!
