Oven Hot Dogs

Maybe I shouldn’t admit this, but I love hot dogs. I mean, I really love hot dogs. I think that’s probably because of oven hot dogs.

I know, they sound crazy. And you have to eat them with a fork and knife.  But I promise oven hot dogs are absolutely delicious. My dad made these for us, and I think his mom started the trend when he was a kid. And they aren’t only delicious out of nostalgia–my husband loves them, and my brother told me his wife requests oven hot dogs every time they’re lost for what to eat.

Because this is a family recipe, I took step-by-step photos. Hopefully my dad will comment telling me what I did wrong because mine still never taste as good as his! It’s funny how that always happens, right?

Here’s what you need: hot dogs, hot dog buns, mayonnaise, mustard, sweet relish, chili, cheese, and diced onions.

Cover the inside of the buns with mayonnaise. Lots of mayonnaise!

Add the hot dogs and squish them together in a baking dish. Normally there would be one more, but, um… I ate it before it made it to the pan…
A 9×13″ pan is perfect for eight hot dogs! We like ’em really packed in there.

Add a bit of mustard if that’s your thing.

Now add sweet relish! But I think I messed up–I think the sweet relish is better when put at the bottom of the bun with the mayonnaise.
Edit: My sister, who claims to have “perfected the OHDs,” says I didn’t use enough relish! And, actually, I didn’t–but that was all I had left in the jar.
Edit 2: A few comments have complained that the relish was overwhelming, so proceed with caution! I love sweet relish, but if you don’t you might want to use less or switch to dill.

Top with chili! Just cold chili straight from the can.
I really dislike beans and have tried chili without beans, but that just doesnt’ taste right for oven hot dogs.
Second edit: Victoria again said that I need more chili and need to be messier. The hot dogs should barely be able to handle all the stuff you put on top and should be falling apart when they come out of the oven! My perfectionist tendencies get in the way of that, so please get a bit crazier.

Top with grated cheddar.

Dice your onions. My dad always made a few without onions for kids, but when he finally convinced me to try them with onions I realized that’s the way to go.

Throw on the onions

Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350F for 45 minutes.

And now you’re done! The top with be crispy, which is why you need a fork and knife. Delicious.

Oven Hot Dogs
8 hot dogs
8 hot dog buns
1 can of chili
1/2 an onion, diced
cheddar cheese
sweet relish

Line inside of hot dog buns with mayonnaise and sweet relish. Evenly add mustard. Fill with hot dogs and squish into a 13×9″ baking pan.

Top hot dogs with chili, cheese, and diced onion. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350F for 45 minutes.

Carefully remove from the pan with a spatula–I dropped one on the floor the other day :(

    I’ve mastered the OHDs.
    You needed to add more relish and more chili. I know. It seems like too much. But you have to pretty much stuff the bun with everything you can. That’s what makes it messy and delicious.

    P.s. I can’t believe you told our family secret…

    • 2 Alyssa 17 December 2010 at 12:59 pm

      I haven’t had dad’s oven hot dogs in years! But now that you bring it up, mine definitely don’t seem messy enough.

      Do you put the relish in the bottom, with the mayonnaise? That’s what I usually do. And I typically add more but ran out :(

      I wasn’t going to, but I posted an oven hot dog photo somewhere else, and too many people asked for the recipe! ;)

  2. 4 Kerri 17 December 2010 at 2:24 pm

    This must definitely be a Peet family thing because Grandma made those every time we took family trips to Double Lake. They would sit in the dash the whole way to the lake so they could stay warmed by the sun. And they are absolutely delicious.

  3. 5 bridget {bake at 350} 18 December 2010 at 8:45 pm

    I have never heard of OHDs, but I think this is how I will make them from now on…the look delicious!

  4. 6 Imwaytoobusy 18 December 2010 at 9:52 pm

    You make hotdogs look good! ;) I had no idea a hotdog could look so appetizing. We will have to try this out!

  5. 7 Serena 18 December 2010 at 10:00 pm

    Ive never heard of something as amazing as these!!!! im going to have to try them!

  6. 8 Holly 19 December 2010 at 12:33 am

    OH. MY. YUMMYNESS. This looks delicious. I love this idea, thank you so much for sharing it =)

  7. 9 akjenny 19 December 2010 at 2:07 am

    I wish I’d seen this when the kids were still lil’ tykes. Now when I get caught making them I’ll have no excuse.

  8. 10 Dana 19 December 2010 at 2:43 am

    I have a somewhat secret addiction to hot dogs too, though my addiction generally involves a stick and a campfire. I’m going to have to give these a try though.

    Is sweet relish different than plain ol’ relish?

    • 11 Alyssa 19 December 2010 at 9:13 am

      I went camping a lot as a kid but can’t remember ever actually eating roasted hot dogs at the campfire! Marshmallows, though, were definitely there.

      Around here we also have dill relish, which isn’t sweet. I really never use dill relish unless a recipe calls for it specifically.

  9. 12 Carla 19 December 2010 at 12:48 pm

    Oh wow, those are great looking hot dogs. I want a bite!

  10. 13 Charles Ihrer 19 December 2010 at 5:14 pm

    When i was younger a friend of my parents would fix them for us. We called them Gale”s hot dogs. I still fix them today at least once or twice a month. Love them even now that i am 68. Thanks for shearring this with me, Charlie

  11. 14 Zoe 19 December 2010 at 7:13 pm

    I will substitue these with vegetarian frankfurters and chili because these sounf great!

  12. 15 Swee San 21 December 2010 at 1:21 am

    something very simple, yet to die for!!! I love hot dogs with lotsa relish n onions

  13. 16 Jun 21 December 2010 at 3:25 am

    It looks so delicious! Absolutely mouth-watering!

  14. 17 Kacey 21 December 2010 at 8:45 am

    Wow, I have never heard of baking hotdogs in the oven, but they look really good and next time I have some friends over, I think I’ll try it out! Thanks for sharing.

    P.S. Whenever I try to duplicate my moms recipes, they never come out the same, no matter how simple it is :)

  15. 18 Kelly@TheMeaningofPie 21 December 2010 at 8:54 am

    Out of all of the decadence on Foodgawker today, the one thing that caught my eye was your wonderful Oven Hot Dogs!! I love it. I’ve never made them this way. What a great idea.

  16. 19 Becky Bakes 21 December 2010 at 10:36 am

    These look soooo good! I will definitely be trying. Thanks so much for sharing your family recipe!

  17. 20 Ilaamia 21 December 2010 at 11:04 am

    These look good !
    Can I use something different then Relish ? We dont have relish where I live.Can i just use pickle or something?

    • 21 Alyssa 21 December 2010 at 11:08 am

      It all depends on the taste you prefer! Chopped pickle wouldn’t compare to sweet relish but would be similar to dill relish, which some people prefer on their hot dogs. You would be fine to omit it all together, though.

      • 22 Ilaamia 21 December 2010 at 12:48 pm

        Thanks for your answer!Is it possible to make homemade sweet relish ? Is there a recipe for ? I have never eaten it and never heard of it actually so I don’t know what’s in it.

  18. 23 Glenn 21 December 2010 at 11:40 am

    You just made my friggin’ day! Holiday stress, work stress, what to make for dinner stress- I saw this and said that’s it- I’m makin’ oven baked doggies tonight- my wife will think I’m nuts, but hey, I’m cooking-some homemade fries-and viola’ perfect dinner. THank you-thank you , thank you……..

  19. 24 Maven Koesler 21 December 2010 at 11:53 am

    You know, now I will sit and eat 6 hotdogs and it’s all your fault. My kids will eat a few bites, and I can’t stand to throw out good food. I’ll be forced to finish them off. My husband will get one or two.
    Seriously, this looks incredibly good. I love Sonic’s chili cheese dogs with onions, and this looks waaaaay better.

    • 25 Alyssa 21 December 2010 at 11:55 am

      I always get hot dogs at Sonic too! But these are way better :) I feel your problem–I usually eat two OHDs at once and then come back for another an hour or so later

  20. 26 Emma 21 December 2010 at 4:00 pm

    This is such a great idea, I can’t wait to try them!

  21. 27 Sarah 21 December 2010 at 9:36 pm

    I have a complete hotdog addiction too but these look to be the best I’ve ever seen. If I wasn’t having a really fussy-eating friend around for dinner I would have these tonight. They’ll have to wait ’til tomorrow….BUT NO LATER!

  22. 28 Chris Cody 22 December 2010 at 6:29 am

    Sounds like the perfect food to serve at my Superbowl party! Thanks for sharing :)

  23. 29 kashya 22 December 2010 at 10:17 am

    Oh my god, these look amazing, but this is coming from a hot dog connoisseur. This is the first meal I’m making after christmas. Except I might put a chicago style spin on it using dill relish and adding sport peppers to whats already there. Looks soo yummy.

  24. 30 sheila @ Elements 22 December 2010 at 1:17 pm

    They look wonderful! Now you’ve got me craving these baked chili dogs!! :)

  25. 31 Skillit 22 December 2010 at 1:30 pm

    Never heard of these, but will try them ASAP with Varsity chili!

  26. 32 Brian 22 December 2010 at 2:34 pm

    Can’t wait to make this for my kids. What a great idea!

  27. 33 Deborah 23 December 2010 at 7:23 pm

    I’d never heard of these before, but they looked delicious so we had to try them. My husband and kids loved them and I think they’ll be added as a repeating favorite! Thanks for sharing!

  28. 34 Vicki 29 December 2010 at 12:20 am

    My dad cooked hot dogs like this when we were kids. The only difference he wrapped each individually in foil. When I married and had two stepsons, I made them, wrapped them in foil and we tossed them on the fire while camping. I love how you’d done them here… I’m going to make them like this soon! Thank you for bring such good memories back.

  29. 35 kristin 29 December 2010 at 5:26 pm

    I made miniature versions of these without the chili and they were so good, I’m dying to make them again, only properly this time. I can’t even imagine them being better with chili. They were pretty darn amazing just on their own. Thanks for this recipe. I’d never heard of cooking hot dogs this way before and now I think this’ll be the only way I cook hot dogs ever again.

  30. 37 Eileen 6 January 2011 at 3:39 pm

    And now I am sad because I too love hot dogs and all the stuff on there and they look like ridiculously messy, fantastic, comfort food, but I am too pregnant to eat these thanks to my buddies, heartburn and child kicking Mommy in the stomach… these are going on the things I haven’t been able to eat for a year list to be made upon arrival home from the hospital in a week.

  31. 38 MichelleNW 11 January 2011 at 8:42 pm

    I want to try these so badly…but I wonder how it would come out in the toaster oven…I’m such a toaster oven cooker! But I don’t want to mess them up because they look SO delish!!

  32. 42 HungryAnon 11 January 2011 at 11:19 pm

    I just made these today. Though I put some garlic in my mayo and added a bit of garlic chili sauce. Hot as hell, but oh so good. I also made a slaw with it. It was a very good dinner. Thanks to you and your dad.

  33. 43 Terry 25 January 2011 at 6:47 am

    Can’t wait to try these tonight! It’s a little early,7:45 AM, for hot dogs! 45 minutes at 350 sounds like a lot. Have you ever had them burn?

    • 44 Alyssa 25 January 2011 at 8:21 am

      Nope they never burn! I think the aluminum foil helps with that. I’d say definitely don’t cook them for longer than 45 minutes, but it wouldn’t hurt too much to cut down the time to 35 minutes if you don’t want them so crispy.

  34. 45 Ilaamia 26 January 2011 at 10:13 am

    Can I use something else then 1 can of chili ???
    I don’t know if I can find it where I live.

  35. 46 James Clarke 30 January 2011 at 2:44 pm

    Great way to prepare hot dogs in the winter time!

  36. 47 Tamara 31 January 2011 at 7:52 am

    Hi There! I never thought to bake a hot dog. I made these on this past Saturday. My niece LOVED them! They were really good and easy. Thanks for sharing!

  37. 48 Lisa Freeman 2 February 2011 at 5:44 pm

    Alyssa. I am making the hot dogs tonight. Ken always remembered them this way. Showed Ken the pics. Thank you for showing this recipe.

  38. 50 Linnea 22 February 2011 at 2:47 pm

    These are so easy to make and amazingly delicious. We used hoagie buns and sour cream instead of mayo because I didnt have everything, but I had high expectations and they still blew me away hahah. Thanks for sharing! Your descriptions were excellent.

  39. 52 Ann 24 February 2011 at 11:27 pm

    Absolutely delicious! This translated very well to a vegetarian recipe. : ) I don’t take gorgeous picture like you, but I did make a blog post about my vegetarian version of your oven hot dogs!


    : )

  40. 53 Julia 3 March 2011 at 5:31 pm

    I love these!! I too am obsessed with hot dogs.. theres something about them that i just can seem to get enough of! I am making your recipe again tonight for dinner with friends for a second time because they all loved them so much the first time! thanks for enabling my love;)

  41. 54 MichellNW 3 March 2011 at 5:37 pm

    I made them for the 2nd last night! They came out amazing!! The only thing that was different was the mustard I used. My sister loved them!!!

  42. 55 Laura Flowers 3 March 2011 at 6:37 pm

    We’re making your oven hotdogs tonight. I can’t wait!


  43. 56 Sandy 4 March 2011 at 4:09 pm

    Ohhhh my my.These looks good.

  44. 57 Jude 8 March 2011 at 5:01 pm

    These are in the oven right now! I printed the recipe weeks ago and now we’re ready to try! My onions were gross, so I hope the dried onions rehydrate under the chili for me. Thanks for sharing!!

  45. 58 Yen 19 April 2011 at 5:44 pm

    Just 32 minutes more to go! I cannot wait to devour these! Thanks for sharing your family secret :)

  46. 59 Lindsey Jones 19 June 2011 at 7:40 pm

    My whole family is “chilli dog drunk” thanks to this recipe! So easy and SO good!!

  47. 61 Micki 24 June 2011 at 7:12 pm

    So I’m making these right now. and they look so awesome. I’ve had this page open for days just waiting to make them. I’m so excited!!! :)

  48. 62 Cheryl 2 August 2011 at 7:07 pm

    These are delicious! They remind me of the “Coney Island Special” dish that is popular in the Detroit area (that is hotdog with chili, mustard and onions). It’s a great “away from the hometown” meal! My husband loves these and has been asking for them all week!

  49. 63 Kathy 10 August 2011 at 7:57 pm

    Can’t wait to try these! I may substitute “Cincinnati/Skyline” chili for the regular chili and see how they turn out!

  50. 64 Kimberly Anne 11 August 2011 at 10:45 am

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! I made these last night and they were AWESOME! I am looking forward to making them over and over again! I didnt hae the dijon mustard but they were great without it :)

  51. 65 Ria 29 August 2011 at 12:09 am

    this looks incredible! i didn’t think my favorite food could be improved upon, but you and your dad have definitely proved me wrong.i have a stupid question though- should the hot dogs be boiled before they go into the oven? thanks!

    • 66 Alyssa 29 August 2011 at 7:25 am

      No stupid questions! They don’t need to be boiled–they definitely have time enough to heat up in that 45 minutes in the oven :)

  52. 67 amber 3 September 2011 at 7:54 pm

    I’m making these for dinner tonight!! Mmm!!
    And linking it up to my Tasty tuesday blog posts. It’ll be up this tuesday. Thanks for sharing :)

  53. 68 ashley wise 28 September 2011 at 10:46 am

    are the dogs cooked when you place them in the bun or do you put them on straight out of the fridge?

  54. 70 Caleb Todd 30 September 2011 at 10:39 am

    Yum, they look so good and I can’t wait to make some tonight but first I have important questions! How do these hold up in the fridge? Are they still good microwaved the day after? Do you poke holes in them as you would microwaving them? Thanks for the great share.

    • 71 Alyssa 30 September 2011 at 12:55 pm

      They hold up surprisingly well in the fridge. I just cut them in half (so they will heat a bit better) and pop them in the microwave a few minutes. If you want, you can put them in the oven/toaster oven a while to get the crispy edges back, but I like ’em kinda soggy the second day. We are not big on leftovers in this house, but oven hot dogs never stay in the fridge for more than a day! We’ll eat them for three meals in a row sometimes, haha

      I don’t poke holes in them! I’ve never heard of that.

  55. 72 Caleb Todd 30 September 2011 at 1:54 pm

    Never heard of it?! I don’t know why but I just assumed that everyone knew this , like people know the sun is bright. I was always taught that if you didn’t poke holes in them with a fork or knife the hot dogs would contort in weird shapes or explode! It’s been a while since I’ve tested this out though. Guess i’ll be cooking hotdogs and staring at the sun tomorrow.

  56. 73 fdfdsfdsfdsfdsfds 5 October 2011 at 1:04 am



    How are they not burnt to an absolute crisp.

  57. 75 stacy 14 October 2011 at 10:15 pm

    Do you use regular mayo or miracle whip? Im a miracle whip fan myself dont like regular but my husband doesnt like miracle whip lol he likes regular im just wondering if they would be good with either of them!!!

  58. 77 Cris 19 October 2011 at 6:53 pm

    These are great! I made them tonight for the 3rd time since finding the recipe. They come out perfect when covered with foil @ 45 mins. Thanks for the recipe!

  59. 80 Kim 29 October 2011 at 1:07 am

    These look amazing! I really want to try them, but I know that I’ll probably have to end up eating them all since my family doesn’t appreciate these foods! Any tips on reheating after the batch is baked?

    • 81 Alyssa 30 October 2011 at 10:00 am

      They reheat pretty well, surprisingly. At least enough so that we eat the all the leftovers the next day! I just cut them in half and stick ’em in the microwave for a couple minutes

  60. 82 Yennifer Javier Santana 30 October 2011 at 7:36 am

    These look absolutely amazing! I will be trying it soon. I just have one question, do you cook the hot dogs first or no? I am a cooking noob jeje.

  61. 84 Kari 31 October 2011 at 9:32 am

    Saw this on pinterest What brand of hotdogs do you usually use? There are so many brands and types I never know what to buy! This sounds so easy I am making this tonight before trick or treating. Do you think they could be assembed ahead and placed in the fridge for a few hours before baking or would this make everything soggy?

    • 85 Alyssa 31 October 2011 at 9:56 am

      I am a lover if the fancy all-beef hot dogs, but fir these I like to stick with the cheap stuff! Usually Oscar Mayer-oven hot dogs need cheap everything, which is why I also use canned chili (this is the only time it appears in my house). :)

      I think they will be fine in the fridge for a while, but I would wait and put the chili on just before sticking them in the oven just to be safe.

      • 86 Kari 31 October 2011 at 2:11 pm

        Thanks for responding! I didn’t end up making any of it ahead of time… the prep was so fast, even easier than a crockpot meal because you don’t have to remember to start it in the morning! They JUST went into the oven.

  62. 87 Laura 27 November 2011 at 5:12 pm

    Made these last week and they were FANTASTIC!!! Thanks so much!

  63. 88 shelly 28 November 2011 at 7:35 pm

    These look sooo good. I saved them on my favorite bar and pinned them on pinterest. I went and got the stuff and figured I’d make them today at lunch because my sister and niece were suppose to be here. Thank god they canceled. I made them at dinner instead. I followed exactly. I love all the ingredients and ooey gooey comfort food. This was not for me at all! We threw more than half away and then I stole the hot dogs out of the buns and rinsed them and put them on a fresh bun for the kids… I’m glad it’s a family fave, but I don’t get what the deal is. Looked soooo much better than they tasted.

    • 89 Alyssa 2 December 2011 at 7:31 am

      I’m very sorry it didn’t work out for you! I know how frustrating it is when an exciting recipe ends up disappointing. Because of that, I never share anything I don’t fully believe in. This is one of my favorite meals, but we all have different tastes.

      Again, I am sorry you did not like it! I’m glad you were able to reuse the hot dogs and didn’t have to throw it all out.

      • 90 shelly 2 December 2011 at 10:01 am

        So last night when I was cooking dinner I realized that my oven knob was not turning right. Someone had put the temp knob on wrong and so it was not accurate. I have no idea how long it has been like this. I might maybe possibly try this again in a smaller batch and see what happens…

        • 91 Alyssa 2 December 2011 at 2:04 pm

          Oh no! That could really throw you off! I hope they turn out better if you try them again. Yours is the first negative comment I’ve received! Baking covered at 350 for 45 minutes is really imperative to the recipe, so the temperature being too low (which I assume yours was since being too hot with cause burning) might have been the reason you didn’t like them.

  64. 92 Jessica Shaw 29 November 2011 at 5:56 pm

    Going to make em for supper tonight … They look really good !

  65. 93 Addy 1 December 2011 at 7:14 am

    I showed this recipe to a friend and they made it whilst we were visiting. It was ok but didn’t wow me. Was kinda soggy, bland, and the bun was kinda hard where it wasn’t soggy. I wasn’t sure why, it sounded so good D:

    That was months ago. The other night on a whim, me and the boyfriend decided to grab the few things we were missing for the recipe to try making it ourselves. WOW. What. A. Difference. I have NO idea what the friends did differently but sheesh. I THINK they didn’t cover it with foil when it cooked. Also, we used dill relish instead just because we prefer it.

    We now have the basic ingredients sitting around to make it again when we don’t know what else to do. Awesome recipe!

    • 94 Alyssa 2 December 2011 at 7:27 am

      I’m so glad you gave it a second chance! The recipe instructions are very important. I think people read “covered for 45 minutes at 350” and think it sounds ridiculous and don’t trust that will work out, but that’s the combo you need to make sure everything is melted and warm without being too soggy or crunchy.

    • 95 Kari 10 December 2011 at 12:30 am

      Your first time is how ours came out too. I had it covered in foil. Next time though I think I might wrap each one in foil individually. Also I will switch to the dill relish. We didn’t like the sweet relish at all… it was really all you could taste.

      I’m all for giving this another go though.

  66. 96 Kelli 5 December 2011 at 3:10 pm

    Made a vegetarian version of these using Smart Dogs and Annie’s Vegetarian chili and it turned out fantastic. My husband, who is a meat eater and *real* hot dog lover loved them! I just passed this link on to my coworker who was wowed by just the mention of “baked hot dogs!” Thanks for posting this.

  67. 99 LadyLauraKay 12 December 2011 at 5:44 pm

    Someone posted your recipe on Pinterest. I pinned it–to try later. Last night I had all the fixings and decided to give it a try. They are wonderful! The mayo (which sounds gross) does something extraordinary. I started out making them like individual hotdogs in a pan–trying to stuff each bun–at some point I started thinking of it as a casserole and just scattered the chopped onion and shredded cheese EVERYWHERE!! I was out of pickle relish so I subbed pickled banana peppers –it was still wonderful. This is our new way of making chili dogs from now on. Thanks so much for sharing!

  68. 100 Bethany 21 December 2011 at 4:32 pm

    These are absolutely delicious!! And I will be forever grateful to you for posting these!!! My entire family loves hot dogs but you can only eat them so much in a month. Now that I have this recipe we can’t wait to eat hot dogs!!! These are so amazingly delicious. Thank you so much for sharing!

  69. 101 Nickole Heaps 28 December 2011 at 4:37 pm

    Mine are in the oven now… They look sooo good!!! :D

  70. 102 Wendy 28 December 2011 at 4:51 pm

    I grew up on these and still make them now. We called them Coney Islands! I dont add the pickle relish though but it does sound like a great addition. I will add that next time.

  71. 103 Nickole Heaps 28 December 2011 at 5:26 pm

    These were SO good!! They are the perfect chili dog!! YUM. I was forced to do one thing different because I didn’t have mayo– I used mustard on the bun. It was like a wonderful chili dog with added zest from the relish and mustard! Can’t wait til I can make them again with all the right ingredients! Thanks for the Recipe!

  72. 104 sandra 3 January 2012 at 7:43 am

    thanks for sharing trying them tonight!

    I am very excited to try these tonight. I do have a question though. I am only making 4 or 5. Do you think I should still cook them for 45 minutes? I found you on Pinterest. Thank you!

    • 106 Alyssa 6 January 2012 at 10:03 am

      I would say definitely don’t cook them for less than 30, and remember to follow all other instructions–375 F and tight aluminum foil!

  74. 107 Rebecca 3 January 2012 at 5:19 pm

    What if you don’t like mayo what would you suggest to use instead? I had a bad experience with mayo and my hubby hates it. I would love to try these. Sounds really good. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    • 108 Alyssa 6 January 2012 at 10:02 am

      My mom doesn’t like mayo, so my dad makes them without for her. I’ve never had them that way, but I’ve heard others say they’re still great!

      • 109 Rebecca 6 January 2012 at 4:56 pm

        thanks. Just didnt know if they would taste good without the mayo we have a gas stove/oven i hate it but we live in my hubby’s grandma’s house she is in the nursing home so we are living here and it has taken me forever to get used to it.What temperture/time would you suggest for a gas stove/oven?

    I made this recipe for my NFL Playoffs party this weekend, and loved it so much, I shared it on my blog (tiztheseason.wordpress.com). I will link it back to this page. Thanks! Monica@tiztheseason.wordpress.com.

  76. 112 Jen 18 January 2012 at 5:01 pm

    These are unbelievably good! Making them for the second time this weekend. Can’t wait!

  77. 113 mrsblocko 20 January 2012 at 2:19 pm

    I made these and wrote about them here. They were a huge hit. Thank you so much for posting the recipe!!!

  78. 114 Shemia 22 January 2012 at 10:19 am

    Making these for lunch today…we don’t really like mayo in our house though, is the mayo absolutely mandatory?

    • 115 Alyssa 22 January 2012 at 12:44 pm

      Absolutely! My mom doesn’t like mayo either, so hers have always been without. I know a lot of others have done the same. Hope you enjoy!

  79. 116 Tracey Dawson 31 January 2012 at 11:20 am

    These look great.will definitely fix these.Thank you for sharing your family secret and child hood memories.

  80. 117 Renee Webber 31 January 2012 at 1:20 pm

    Do you really bake the buns w/ mayo for 45 min and then again once all the stuff is in them for 45 min?

    • 118 Alyssa 31 January 2012 at 5:50 pm

      No! You only bake them once–after all the toppings are put on. Line the tray with buns, add mayo and other ingredients, and bake for 45. Then they’re ready to eat!

  81. 119 MizV 31 January 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Making these as I type!! Only 27 minutes to go! I am expecting to be blown away, especially because of all the positive feedback! I didn’t use the relish because I’m not a fan, and my chili, and mustard are different brands so I’m hoping they still taste as amazing as they look in your photos!

  82. 120 Jessie 1 February 2012 at 5:56 pm

    I have all the ingredients. I will make them today for dinner. They look so delicious!!

  83. 121 Carrie 3 February 2012 at 6:58 pm

    I’m making these tonight :) I did change a couple things with the recipe, like substituting butter for mayo and adding jalepenos. I hope they turn out well!

  84. 122 Donna 10 February 2012 at 9:59 am

    So do you bake the buns first by There self?

  85. 124 Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage 16 February 2012 at 7:01 pm

    Made these tonight and they were a BIG HIT with the family! Thanks for the yummy recipe!

  86. 125 Carrie 21 February 2012 at 9:47 pm

    We made these tonight and wrapped the dogs with soft cooked bacon before placing them in the buns. They were AMAZING!!! Back on my diet tomorrow! Thank you for sharing!

  87. 126 Raine 22 February 2012 at 5:00 pm

    Just popped this in the oven, CANTW AIT TO EAT!!!!

  88. 127 Deanna 28 February 2012 at 9:25 am

    I am a hot dog lover myself…I love love love hot dogs! My family gets sick of them so when I ran across this recipe I was very very excited. Going out today to get the ingredients to try them tomorrow!!!!

  89. 128 Alexa 1 March 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Do you cook the hot dogs before you bake them??

  90. 130 Kristina 2 March 2012 at 5:34 pm

    This sounds like the perfect pot luck, actually, or work party bring-along. What is the “amazing thing” that happens with the mayo once it’s baked into the bun? I’m curious! I live alone so I can’t bake a tray of dogs until I have an event to cook for!

    • 131 Alyssa 5 March 2012 at 7:03 pm

      Hmm, I can’t really say. It’s just that the mayonnaise makes the bread very mushy, which contrasts really well to the crunchiness of the outside/tops of the buns.

      I would totally still make these alone for myself! haha. I usually eat two every time I make them, and then the leftovers are gone after another day.

  91. 132 Jana Torrance Botsford 5 March 2012 at 6:55 pm

    Made these tonight for supper yum yum thanks for posting!!!!

  92. 133 Jamie 5 March 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Saw these on pinterest a while back; finally decided to try them tonight. DELICIOUS! My fiance told me to keep it on our list of recipes. :) I will be brave next time and add more mayo. Thanks so much for sharing!

  93. 134 Elle 7 March 2012 at 5:18 pm

    I made these last night, except I used dill relish & French’s classic yellow mustard. They were delicious! Definitely the way to eat a hot dog, for sure! My husband, our toddler son, and I all loved them. I will absolutely be making again. Thanks for the recipe! :)

  94. 135 J.R. Romanovitch 12 March 2012 at 5:56 pm

    OMG! This was good! I made them tonight. And they were so awesome that men respected me and women wanted me!


  95. 136 Jplohocky 20 March 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Thank you for sharing your family secret recipe! I made these for me and the beau last night, (first, he complained that I didn’t just slap them together and serve them within 10 min, but then…) he loved them and said they were the best chili-dogs he ever had! I had to agree, they were amazing! I omitted the sweet relish, we’re not big on it, but they still turned out tasty. He took the leftovers for lunch and they reheated well, too. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  96. 137 Lindsay 25 March 2012 at 5:14 pm

    Sounds yummy we are having these tonight!

  97. 138 Norma 1 April 2012 at 4:01 pm

    Made them tonight! WOWZERS! they are wonderful :)

  98. 139 Lynette Shenk Kammerer 2 April 2012 at 9:14 pm

    We are going to have hot dogs for dinner tomorrow so I figured I would search pintrest for ideas. These sound and look amazing! It’s a go for tomorrow night!!

  99. 140 Raquel 5 April 2012 at 8:52 pm

    These are DELISH but why did my buns get hard? I followed the recipe and cook time/oven temp correctly. The whole bun wasn’t hard, the bottoms and the ends on some were.

  100. 141 Laura 21 April 2012 at 7:41 am

    So do you really have to bake the buns with mayo for 45 mins first then bake another 45 mins with everything else on it? Seems like a lot

  101. 143 kristi 23 April 2012 at 8:02 pm

    These are in the oven right now! 34 mins to go! Good thing I read the comments after I threw them in because I completely forgot to cover it with foil…. Hahha I bolted to the kitchen and fixed that real quick :]

  102. 144 Leah 6 May 2012 at 3:46 pm

    OMG!!!! Those look amazing…I will be trying these this week…Thanks :O)

  103. 145 Olga 15 May 2012 at 7:29 pm

    I just made these for dinner, and they were awesome!! Thank you so much for this recipe.

  104. 146 jen 17 May 2012 at 11:35 am

    I am excited to try these, I am not a big fan of hot dogs but these look amazing. My son loves chili hot dogs he has a soccer game tonight and you guessed it, this is what we are having for dinner. Thank you for the idea and recipe

  105. 147 Theresa M 19 May 2012 at 9:45 am

    Tried these a few weeks ago. The family is begging for them again this week! They are officially on the menu for tonight. GREAT go to when we need a quick meal. So delicious! They are the perfect balance of everything that makes a chili dog a chili dog! Thanks for a recipe that really delivers!

    • 148 Wendy 20 May 2012 at 6:55 pm

      These are great! We always called them Coney Islands when I was growing up. Never used relish, I’ll have to try that. Made them a little more gooey with extra chili and cheese. YUMMO!

  106. 149 Matthew 28 May 2012 at 6:36 pm

    When you bake the buns and mayo alone for 45 minutes….at what temp do you do that?????????

  107. 151 Dean Briley 25 June 2012 at 1:26 pm

    I have been making Hot Dogs like this for years but I wrap each one in foil…some time I stick them wrapped in the crock pot…everyone who has tried them “LOVE THEM” some time even if they are not fond of hot dogs…

  108. 152 Kim 4 July 2012 at 12:16 pm

    I’m making these right now for our 4th of July. I’m using turkey dogs and Hormel turkey chili. I didn’t have relish at home, so I sliced up some bread & butter pickles and put just a few on the bottom of the buns. I also added ketchup.

  109. 153 Sarah 26 July 2012 at 10:33 am

    I don’t eat chili dogs but thank you for this recipe. When my husband likes his food he closes his eyes and nods while eating it… he nodded all the way through two of these.

  110. 154 Sol 29 July 2012 at 1:52 pm

    I made these a week or so ago and they are very yummy! Would have cut back on the relish and mustard a little, but she’s right when she says you have HAVE HAVE to put a good amount of mayo on it. I tried wrapping them separately and found two issues: They don’t quite get as crispy as I imagined and trying to get them all “loaded” without tipping over is a bit more difficult. Next time I will definitely try them unwrapped.

  111. 155 Amanda 24 August 2012 at 2:32 pm

    I am pregnant and nothing has sounded good for almost 5 months. Except these!! We will be eating tonight, I am so grateful to you for getting me out of my food funk :)

  112. 156 Crystal 13 December 2015 at 6:33 pm

    I made these tonight. They were absolutely delicious but the only issue I had was part of the bun comes out hard. Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

  113. 157 Kari Miner 24 January 2016 at 1:42 pm

    Why mayo? Is this optional? Looking forward to making just not sure about the mayo!

  114. 158 dog videos 22 August 2019 at 12:41 am

    Superb site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any user discussion forums that
    cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really like to
    be a part of group where I can get advice from other experienced individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Cheers!

  115. 159 frisuren 2020 5 February 2020 at 4:06 am

    excellent points altogether, you just received a new
    reader. What may you suggest about your post that you made a few days
    ago? Any positive?

  116. 160 camping 25 August 2020 at 8:06 am

    May I simply say what a relief to discover somebody who really knows what they are talking about
    online. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    More and more people need to check this out and understand this side of the
    story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.

  117. 161 Kat 8 September 2020 at 4:12 pm

    This did not turn out for me. All of the toppings melted off the hot dogs and into the pan.

  118. 162 Joan 14 December 2020 at 3:43 pm

    I have made this so many times I’ve lost count. Absolutely delicious!!
