Lynn's notes for this recipe:
Who doesn't love hot dogs and hamburgers? I love them both, but I can never eat both, only one. Well...not anymore, now I can have my favorite hot dog, and my burger too! This burger is based on my favorite way to eat a hot dog: chili cheese with onions. You can turn this into your favorite burger dog too!

Slice your wieners across ways. Season your meat as you normally would, divide meat into number of equal portions for the number of burgers you plan to cook.
Now the tricky part. I thought these cow patties would good together just like normal, wrong!! They apparently have an adverse reaction to the wieners. They don't particularly want to hold together. Not wanting to add an egg, I did manage to manipulate one burger together, and added more wieners to it once I got it shaped.
The other ones, I cut each burger portion in half, made a patty, added the wieners on top, then made another patty and covered the first one. Hence, the wieners were inside like you would put cheese inside two patties. If you use this method, be sure to seal the edges all the way around.
Grill your burger to perfection, depending on your taste.
Flame broiled burger
This is what your little mooing dogs will look like.
Add chili, grated cheese, and diced onion, place on baking sheet in 400° oven for about 4-5 min. to melt cheese and heat bun.
Get a little wild and put all your favorite hot dog toppings on your newly addicting "Burger Dog".

Great idea!! Now you have me thinking..suppose you wrap the hot dog in ground beef and have it on a hot dog roll.

It's not something you would do often probably, but I think it would be a kick at a backyard get together or birthday party.
