This is my first attempt at posting a recipe, I hope you all enjoy these tasty treats!!

This was a great idea shared with me by my former mother-in-law. These are easy to do, tasty, and the recipe can be expanded to serve as few or as many as you need.

Make sure you let them cool a bit before trying to open the foil up, as I have burned myself a few times...

pinch tips: How to Brown Chicken


1 pkg
hot dogs
1 pkg
hot dog buns
yellow mustard
1/2 large
onion, chopped
8 slice
velveta cheese (make slices fairly thick)
8 sheet(s)
aluminum foil

Directions Step-By-Step

Tear sheets of aluminum foil and set aside. Chop onion. Slice cheese (I use the brick style Velveta cheese). Pre-heat oven to 350°
Place each hot dog inside a bun, squeeze mustard and ketchup along the sides of each hot dog. Take each slice of cheese and cut it in half, then place it on top of each hot dog. Top each hot dog with chopped onion (I do it this way because it helps keep the cheese from sticking to the foil).
Place each hot dog on a sheet of foil, fold foil around hot dog, and place on a baking sheet (I use a pizza pan). Bake for 30 minutes, remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes before serving.

What do you think about adding the cheese before the hot dog to keep it from sticking to the foil if you omit the onion? Would it interfere with the hotdog juice yummy-ness from soaking into the bun?

Thanks for posting this. I had all the stuff , so went to my kitchen and made just a few for our lunch today and LOVED these. Would be great to make up if you have to feed a lot of people too. I will be making these often. I cut the cheese thinly and placed a slice on each side of the hotdog instead of on top and had no problem with the cheese sticking to the foil.
