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


  • 2Gather your ingredients.
  • 3Cut the baguette to a length slightly shorter than the hotdog.
  • 4Chef’s Note: I like a bit of hotdog sticking out each end… But, that’s just me.
  • 5Cut a section off each side of the baguette, lengthwise.
  • 6Cut 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.
  • 7Scoop out the middle section to make the trough.
  • 8Brush the melted butter on the bottom and two cut sides.
  • 9Place in a small pan, over, medium heat.
  • 10Toast the bottom and the two sides, about 2 minutes per side.
  • 11Remove from pan, and place the provolone cheese into the trough.
  • 12Roll the hotdog in the prosciutto ham, and place into the pan, seam-side down.
  • 13Cook over medium heat, rolling the dog in the pan, until the hotdog is hot, and the ham begins to crisp, about 3 – 5 minutes.
  • 14Add the hotdog to the baguette.
  • 15Add the chili.
  • 16Add some mustard.
  • 17Chef’s Note: Here’s the link to my awesome chili sauce: Absolutely Awesome Hotdog Chili Sauce
  • 18Top with the coleslaw.
  • 20Serve with some chips or fries, or just experience it all by itself. Enjoy.
  • 21Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
