Yesterday was National Hot Dog Day and we paid homage to the the all mighty hot dog by testing out a fabulous hot dogs in a loaf recipe. This kid approved recipe is super easy and a fun twist on the traditional hot dog with a bun. The recipe will sure come in handy the next time you have a package of hot dogs and no buns. This actually happens quite often in our house. I’m glad to report that this recipe is a keeper, so go on give it a try and let us know how you like it.
The recipe uses one of our favorite old standbys, Bisquick. Oh how I love Bisquick baking mix!
6 hot dogs
2 tablespoons sweet relish
1 cup Bisquick baking mix
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease loaf pan, 9x5x3 inches. Split hot dogs lengthwise, not cutting completely through. Fill each with about 1 teaspoon relish. Mix remaining ingredients with fork; beat vigorously 30 seconds. Spread in pan. Arrange hot dogs crosswise on dough inpan, curing slightly and pressing to fit pan. Press into dough slightly. Bake until bread is light brown, about 20 minutes.
Note: The relish may be replaced with strips of cheese, ketchup or mustard.
To serve, cut bread between hot dogs. Recipe yields 3 or 4 servings.
