Tired of boring hot dogs? Try this fun twist on a traditional hotdog – a Reuben Hot Dog.
Once the weather gets warm hot dogs are a frequent meal at my house. They are quick to make, and everyone in the family enjoys them! My vegetarian daughter will eat veggie hot dogs, so I can feed the entire family without making a special meal for her. But hot dogs can get boring, and sometimes it is fun to try toppings other than mustard or chili.
So I took the traditional ingredients of a Reuben sandwich and used them to top off hot dogs. I added sauerkraut, Thousand Island Salad dressing and Swiss cheese to the hot dog for a tasty dinner. This is a great way to change things up and make a simple meal different and exciting. With the addition of a simple salad or another easy side dish you can have a kid friendly dinner on the table in no time at all.
- 6 hot dogs
- 1 jar sauerkraut
- 1/2 cup Thousand Island Dressing
- 1/2 cup Swiss Cheese
- 6 hot dog buns
- Grill the hot dogs on low for 15 minutes.
- Place the buns open on the grill for 3 minutes to toast them lightly.
- Put a hot dog in each bun and top with sauerkraut, dressing and Swiss Cheese.
