The Best Hot Diggity Chilidog

Andy Anderson !


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.

How to Make The Best Hot Diggity Chilidog


  2. Gather your ingredients.
  3. Cut the baguette to a length slightly shorter than the hotdog.
  4. 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.
  14. Add the hotdog to the baguette.
  15. Add the chili.
  16. Add some mustard.
  17. Chef’s Note: Here’s the link to my awesome chili sauce: Absolutely Awesome Hotdog Chili Sauce
  18. Top with the coleslaw.
  20. Serve with some chips or fries, or just experience it all by itself. Enjoy.
  21. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
