Pinned it, Made it! Monday ~ Week 8 ~

Thank you for your comments regarding the beach/mountains question! It was really fun reading your preferences and “the why” behind it. And it was also a reminder to me that God designed us all differently yet He created all of that beauty for us to enjoy! What a blessing!

Another week has zipped by. I still didn’t get to the project I really wanted to do and share today for Pinned it Made it Monday. Actually I’m waiting on my hubby to cut out some wood for me, but I’ll eventually get to it. But, I do have something to share.

When I pinned these baked chili dogs, I did wonder what would make them more special than a regular chili dog. But I decided I was going to try them out and see for myself. Here’s the original pin (from She calls them oven hot dogs.

Pinned from

Oven Hot Dogs (Baked Chili Dogs)

8 hot dogs 
8 hot dog buns
1 can of chili
1/2 an onion diced
cheddar cheese 
sweet relish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Line inside of hot dog buns with mayonnaise and sweet relish. Evenly add mustard. Fill with hot dogs and squish into a 13×9″ baking pan.

2. Top hot dogs with chili, cheese, and diced onion. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes.

**Note from Tammy** I used beef hot dogs because that's what we prefer.  I also used hot dog chili (you know the kind without the beans), and shredded cheddar cheese.

 It was a pleasant surprise to bite into one of these. There’s just something special about those ingredients baking together……the mustard, mayo, sweet relish, chili, onions and cheese, and then eating them when they are piping hot out of the oven. We added baked potato chips for our supper. My mom dropped by about the time we were eating so I sent a couple home with her and she called me later telling me how delicious they were. So, not sure why it makes such a difference, but the next time you’re thinking hot dogs, give these baked chili dogs a try and see for yourself!

These were mine before putting them into the oven

And after they came out of the oven.
