Okay, I made this awesome hotdog chili, so I needed an awesome hotdog to go along with it...

A good chilidog needs several things, and all in the right combination, to be successful... and one of those important things is the bun. In that respect, I think that I’ve come up with a good solution.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

PREP/PREPARE

Gather your ingredients.

Cut the baguette to a length slightly shorter than the hotdog.

Chef’s Note: I like a bit of hotdog sticking out each end… But, that’s just me.
5
Cut a section off each side of the baguette, lengthwise.
6
Cut a trough down through the middle of the baguette, about the thickness of the hotdog, but be careful not to cut all the way through.
7
Scoop out the middle section to make the trough.
8
Brush the melted butter on the bottom and two cut sides.
9
Place in a small pan, over, medium heat.
10
Toast the bottom and the two sides, about 2 minutes per side.
11
Remove from pan, and place the provolone cheese into the trough.
12
Roll the hotdog in the prosciutto ham, and place into the pan, seam-side down.
13
Cook over medium heat, rolling the dog in the pan, until the hotdog is hot, and the ham begins to crisp, about 3 – 5 minutes.

Add the hotdog to the baguette.
