Day 34: Chili Dog Wiener Winks!

For the last week or so I have been craving chili dogs, but unfortunately, we did not have any hot dogs and I knew I'd have to wait another week or so until we are at the end of the project. Then John found some No Mess Chili dogs deep in the depths of the freezer. They were hiding.
This is John. I had heard about the "No Mess Chili Dogs" a year or 2 ago. They are made in Holstein, Iowa...a town I know very well in northwest Iowa. The chili & cheese are IN the hot dog!

John got out the cheese and got some water heating up. He had a plan!

Next some bread. He was making wiener winks. If you don't know what those are, you will soon learn.

He buttered one side of the bread.

Face down in the pizza pan and then John grabbed the cheese. Stevie heard that special cheese plastic and he was ready and waiting for any that may fall.

Cheese on the un-buttered side of the bread.

The dogs are heated through. This makes it so we just have to wait for the cheese to melt and the bread to toast a little. If we waited until the dogs were hot we would not enjoy the results.

Folded up the sides and in go a couple of toothpicks to hold the bread in place.

All ready to go.

Two for each of us. John finished off two kinds of cheese that were almost empty.

Into the 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until they look right.

Here they look right.

The bottom is all toasty/

Can't forget to take the toothpicks out!

And ready to eat. Tasty and hit the spot!

LOVE the wiener winks! And like my friend Eddie always used to say..."If your wiener winks at you...don't touch it!"
