Not just in the summer, but all year long. When I moved to New Zealand, I lost weight from the lack of hot dogs available. I wish I were kidding, but it's just not something the British or New Zealanders eat, probably for a good reason.</p> <p>But if you're in a country that regularly consumes hot dogs, you may have a problem with too many hot dogs left over from summer barbecues. Luckily, there are a lot of other <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/5-fun-ways-to-eat-hot-dogs">uses for hot dogs</a> besides the usual hot dog on a bun.</p> <h2>1. Hot Dog Spaghetti</h2> <p>My boyfriend loves <a href="http://bellyfull.net/2011/10/27/threaded-spaghetti-hot-dog-bites/">hot dog spaghetti</a> and believes he invented it. Unfortunately, the Internet beat him to it. This meal is quick, easy, and delicious, albeit a little weird. Simply cut up uncooked hot dogs, thread 6-8 spaghetti noodles through them and boil for six minutes or until the pasta is al dente. Drain and mix with butter. Top with parmesan. My boyfriend also adds ketchup and hot sauce. I'll leave that up to you.</p> <h2>2. Hot Dog Casserole</h2> <p>The Southern (and most obvious) way to use any leftover food is to make a casserole. Hot dog casserole is basically macaroni and cheese with hot dogs, which is maybe something I eat on occasion anyway. While <a href="http://www.food.com/recipe/hot-dog-casserole-24205">this particular recipe</a> is not very nutritious, it is very much delicious. Unfortunately, a search for &quot;hot dog casserole healthy&quot; yielded little-to-no actual results.</p> <h2>3. Sloppy Dawgs</h2> <p>Similar to chopped dogs, which are chopped up hot dogs cooked in a chili sauce, <a href="http://www.rachaelrayshow.com/recipe/14513_Sloppy_Dawgs/">sloppy dawgs</a> are chopped up hot dogs with sloppy joe seasonings. In a skillet, cook chopped up hot dogs until golden brown, then add onions and red pepper with tomato paste. Separately mix red wine vinegar, brown sugar, tomato sauce, and Worcestershire sauce, and add to the pan. Cook until thickened and then add to a toasted bun.</p> <h2>4. Chicago Dog Salad</h2> <p>Chicago dogs are some of the best hot dogs in the world. The combination of spicy and sweet on a poppyseed bun &mdash; you can't beat it! That is&hellip; unless you make this delicious treat into a salad. Using ingredients from regular Chicago dogs sans bun, this salad is a much healthier alternative to pretty much every recipe on this list. Check out the recipe <a href="http://www.rachaelray.com/recipes/chicago-dog-salad">here</a> and munch away!</p> <h2>5. Hot Dog Hash</h2> <p>I have seen a number of coworkers eat a hot dog in the morning. A hot dog, on a bun, slathered in ketchup. I have no idea what compels someone to eat a hot dog that early, but if you're going to do it, add an egg at least. This <a href="http://abc.go.com/shows/the-chew/recipes/Hot-Dog-Hash-Michael-Symon">hot dog hash recipe</a> from Michael Symon takes fresh potatoes, onions, eggs, and seasonings to create a delicious sounding breakfast (or brinner) option.</p> <h2>6. Pigs in a Blanket</h2> <p>When I was younger, the food I always asked for on my birthday was as follows: hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls, with macaroni and cheese and baked beans. Every year I requested this delicious combination of everything unhealthy, and every year my mom obliged. <a href="https://www.pillsbury.com/recipes/crescent-dogs/b19c6c07-bad8-45b5-8a4e-e604f30baa98">Pigs in a blanket</a> is one of the easiest hot dog recipes that exists. You take a can of crescent rolls, cut the hot dogs down the middle, add sliced American cheese, and then wrap them in the crescent rolls. Bake according to package directions, but add an extra 5-10 minutes to make sure the crescent rolls are baked all the way. Serve with macaroni and cheese and baked beans and invite me over.</p> <h2>7. Corn Dog Waffles</h2> <p>Yep, you read that right. It's like Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson came up with the ultimate food. For these creative <a href="http://www.hebrewnational.com/recipes-Corn-Dog-Waffles-7834">corn dog waffles</a>, you'll need a waffle iron, waffle supplies, and of course, hot dogs. You can even put them on a stick &mdash; which might be the best part?. These are perfect for a summer party or your next <em>Parks and Rec </em>themed party (which I had in June).</p> <p><em>What are your favorite uses for leftover hot dogs?

I agree that parents need to monitor what (and how) their young children eat. However, hot dogs are a pretty inexpensive meal. While I&rsquo;d never consider them to be a &ldquo;health food,&rdquo; they are inexpensive, and you can buy them in varying degrees of fat/nitrates. Tofu dogs could even be substituted in the following recipes.</p> <h3>Ghetto Spaghetti</h3> <p>This recipe comes courtesy of my late mother-in-law. I absolutely love it. My thoughtful husband will make it for me when I&rsquo;ve had a bad day &mdash; it is great comfort food.</p> <ul> <li>1 package hot dogs, sliced 1/4 inch thick</li> <li>2 T. olive oil</li> <li>One package spaghetti or angel-hair pasta</li> <li>One jar of spaghetti sauce</li> <li>One green pepper, sliced in strips</li> <li>1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese</li> </ul> <p>1. Heat oil in skillet.</p> <p>2. Add green pepper and saute until soft.</p> <p>3. Add hot dogs and heat through.</p> <p>4. Add spaghetti sauce.</p> <p>5. In large pot, cook pasta as directed.</p> <p>5. Drain and return to pot.</p> <p>6. Serve spaghetti with sauce; sprinkle with parmesan cheese.</p> <h3>Hot-Dog Spread Sandwich</h3> <p>Here&rsquo;s a recipe that will stick to your ribs. My &ldquo;other mom,&rdquo; Gayle, used to make this to feed the sheep-shearing crew. That gives you an idea of its heartiness. As these were pre-Cuisinart days, she used a meat grinder to grind the hot dogs.</p> <ul> <li>1 package of hot dogs</li> <li>1 package of hot-dog buns</li> <li>1 cup cheddar cheese, grated</li> <li>1/2 cup chopped onions</li> <li>3 hard-cooked eggs, chopped</li> <li>1/4 cup pickle relish</li> <li>1/4 cup catsup</li> <li>3 T. mayonnaise</li> </ul> <p>1. Chop up hot dogs.</p> <p>2. Combine with other ingredients.</p> <p>3. Spread 1/4 cup of spread onto bun, wrap in foil and heat in 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.</p> <h3>Polka-dot Mac and Cheese</h3> <p>I don&rsquo;t think it gets much easier than this (or cheaper).</p> <ul> <li>1 box macaroni and cheese</li> <li>Four hot dogs, sliced 1/4 inch thick</li> </ul> <p>1. Prepare macaroni and cheese as directed on box.</p> <p>2. Pour into a casserole dish and top with hot dog slices.</p> <p>3. Heat in 350-degree oven for twenty minutes.</p> <p>4. Serve with high degree of perkiness.</p> <h3>Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dog Appetizers</h3> <p>This is a great recipe from <a href="http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Bacon-Wrapped-Hotdogs/Detail.aspx">allrecipes</a>. Set these down at a party and watch even the food snobs scarf them.</p> <ul> <li>10 hot dogs, cut into thirds</li> <li>15 slices bacon, cut in half</li> <li>1/2 cup packed brown sugar</li> </ul> <p>1. Wrap 1/2 slice of bacon around each piece of hot dog. Secure the bacon with a toothpick.</p> <p>2. Place hot dogs into a slow cooker on low heat. Pour brown sugar over hot dogs, let cook for 5 to 6 hours; until bacon is cooked.</p> <h3>Potluck Fave</h3> <p>My co-workers ASK me to bring this to office potlucks.</p> <ul> <li>Two packages of hot dogs, sliced into thirds</li> <li>One jar grape jelly</li> <li>One jar chili sauce</li> </ul> <p>Combine in crock-pot and heat until bubbly.</p> <p><em>I see that hot dogs are on sale again, already.
