We've made these 3 times. First time for just the 2 of us to try it. Loved them. Invited a neighbor couple and sat outside while I fried the hot dogs on the grill side burner. They loved them so much they made them for some of their friends. Last night I made them for 8 people--we entertained some young relatives from out of town. I cooked them outside in an electric frying pan. Then I put the ingredients, in order, in a row on the counter with a little place cards giving the step number and what to do. They all had a great time and everyone loved them and everyone ate every bite. It seems like a lot of bread, but one especially nice thing is that the juices run down into the roll and make it very tasty--so you don't get a mouthful of dry bread.
Made this same recipe for a party of 6 people. Two of the men, traditionalists, preferred to have hamburgers instead. The other four folks ate up two each and they were big. But I just love these. They are a hit for friends, something different that is not too complicated. Plus your friends can pitch in putting them together. Great recipe.
My husband put these together tonight--he saw them (or something very similar) on Man vs. Food. They are incredibly delicious, and I don't generally care for hot dogs. We didn't use guacamole because we didn't have any and couldn't find it at our local store, and we used a can of diced tomatoes and green chiles, so we didn't use salsa verde. We also used turkey bacon. We will no doubt make them again sometime.
saw these on Diners, Drive-Ins and DIves and had to try 'em for myself. All I can say is WOW!!!! A completely different taste from a regular hot dog. We love 'em and will continue to make them for a year 'round taste treat. Can't wait to try 'em on the grill!
