Dinner Tonight: Cheddar Chili Dogs
Wow, It's the last day of June already. This month flew by! For Breakfast this morning I fried 2 Jennie - O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, prepared an Egg Sunnyside Up, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie's Whole Bread, and my every morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. The Summer like weather has kicked in! 86 degrees and HUMID. After Breakfast I headed to Meijer for a few items and had to stop by the bank. Back home I cleaned the Kitchen, swept, mopped, cleaned the fridge, and cleaned the stove. Then kicked back for a bit and watched some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared CHEDDAR CHILI DOGS.
I have Chili and Cheese Dogs quite often but this recipe is a bit of a twist of what I normally have. I found this recipe in a recipe email from Bush's Beans, BUSH’S® CHEDDAR CHILI DOGS. I made some changes from the original recipe, I left the original recipe and web link at the end of the post. To make the Dogs I'll need; 1 can (16 oz) BUSH'S® Chili Beans - Red Beans in a Medium Chili Sauce (drained), 1 tsp chili powder, 4 Ball Park Smoked Turkey Franks, 4 Aunt Millie's Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns, French's Yellow Mustard, 3 slices Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon (crisped and coarsely chopped), and 1/4 cup Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese.
To prepare them; Heat the Beans in a medium saucepan until just heated through; stir in chili powder. Next I cooked Hot Dogs. I used a medium size sauce pan, filled 3/4 full of water and heated to a boil. When water was boiling I added the Franks, boiled for 5 minutes. Removed the pan from the heat, drained the water, and prepared the Cheddar Chili Dogs. Spread each Bun with Mustard. Place a Hot Dog in each Bun and top with Beans. Sprinkle each with Bacon, Onion 9optional), Tomato (optional), and Cheese. These turned out fantastic, love the Beans and Cheddar toppings. Nice switch from my normal Chili and Cheese Coney's.
Served it with some Ruffles Reduced Fat Potato Chips and some Lay's Ranch Dip. Also had a
Caffeine Free Diet Coke. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher's Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
