I remember having my first taste of a Chili Cheese Dog when I was a kid. It was from Joe’s in my hometown and it was a foot-long, hanging off the bun on either side and smothered with chili and melty cheese. It was heaven! I can’t go back in time, but I can make this Homemade Hot Dog Chili Sauce & recreate that memory as best I can.
It’s been a while since I’ve willingly eaten any hot dog other than at a ballpark. (I miss the St. Paul Saints now that I’m in Atlanta!) Due to the generosity of others, we’ve found ourselves with an abundance of hot dogs. Most of the kids like them as is, of course, but as an adult, I needed a little incentive. I decided to revive a childhood fave: Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Hot Dogs.
