A Tried and True Campfire Favorite…..

There’s nothing like a hot dog roasted on an open camp fire, right? Well, we found a way to “step it up a notch”. Granted, you have to have the right equipment….a cast iron hot dog iron. We’ve had ours for years and we all agree that there isn’t a better hot dog to be found….anywhere!

So here’s the recipe…..

2 slices of bread, buttered on one side

2 hot dogs

1 hot dog iron

Place each hot dog on the unbuttered side of each slice of bread and place end to end in the hot dog iron. (See the picture) Close and lock the hot dog iron. Trim the excess bread/crust sticking out from the side of the hot dog iron. Roast slowly over red hot coals. Open the iron, remove the hot dogs and enjoy the best dog EVER!

Dip these “puppies” in ketchup and/or mustard and ENJOY! Another option is to forget the bread….instead place the hot dogs in the hot dog iron and cover with prepared Jiffy cornbread mix, close the lid and roast over the hot coals until done – a campfire version of a corn-dog!
