Chili Dog In A Log! That's right! Chili dogs in an egg roll wrapper...

This truly is East meets West!

We don't like to buy pre-made snacks from the freezer section at the grocery store... This is one of the goodies we make to eat right away... or make now, freeze and eat on the run or chillin' out watching a movie or sports on T. V.

We make many versions of this... try this one and improvise with what you like and have on hand!

We love to Play With Our Food! xo

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These reminded us of something you'd find at a county fair with all the fried food deliciousness. Imagine biting into a melted chili cheese dog fried in a crunchy egg roll wrapper and you have this tasty snack. Fry these up for the big game, sit down and watch them disappear. We suggest serving with extra chili and a bit of mustard for dipping. These are awesome! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Chili Dog In A Log!

Step-by-Step

  1. Optional: Spread a little mustard on egg roll wrapper.
  2. Add cheese cut small or sprinkle on a little shredded cheese.
  3. Put a little of the canned chili (or homemade chili) on top of the mustard layer.
  4. Cut hot dogs to the size needed (they may be too long), place on top of chili. Pictured are whole hot dogs. Sometimes we use half hot dogs too. Optional: Sprinkle a little onion on.
  5. Using a little water to seal the edges.
  6. Roll up as you would a regular egg roll.
  7. Cook right away in hot oil.
  8. Drain on paper towels and serve.
  9. If you make some for future use, fry them up and totally let cool. Freeze on a metal baking sheet. When totally frozen, transfer to zipper bags and store in the freezer until needed.
  10. *** You can use extra chili to dip the logs in.

    *** We also make these with just cheese and hot dog.
