When I was small I never had a taste of it (blame my super conscious parents), later in college I had a grilled one at a barbeque party and I still remember that amazement. It never made sense, as to how I could miss eating it all through my life. If you are a health freak, consider this as a cheat (well, only do this if you are an ardent fan of hot dogs). The recipe below is so great that you would feel like cheating your diet almost every day. So here is the recipe, read on and enjoy
Hot Dogs from the oven
Hot dogs: 8
Dog buns: 8
Chilli : 1 can
Onion: probably half would do, and preferably diced.
Procedure: Try to line the insides of the buns with sweet relish and mayonnaise, then add the mustard evenly to it. Add in the hot dogs and then place it in the baking pan. Top the hot dogs with cheese, chili and onions. Cover it using an aluminium foil and bake it for 45 minutes at 350 degree Fahrenheit.
Check whether it is done. Then carefully remove it using a spatula.
Now the debate still continues whether it is advisable to have a hot dog or not. But the good news is that, there are a lot of hot dogs available in the market and it is possible for you to make a healthier choice (relatively). But remember that this is just a case of relativity and should not be considered on the same level as a green salad. Experts in dietetics and nutrition suggest that in the case of hot dogs, what exactly matters is the quality of the ingredients (meat), the other add-ons such as preservatives and the processing.
The ideal hot dog should be that of less than one fifty calories and should only have less than fourteen grams of fat with less than six grams of saturated fat. The sodium level should be less than 450 milligrams per hotdog.
