Remember the Food Network Cookbook that I reviewed awhile back? Well, my daughter was paging through the awesome recipes and she spotted this sandwich and fell in love. I admit, I was at first a little grossed out by making a hot dog grilled cheese sandwich like this. I'm also not a huge hot dog fan.
I let her run with it and it turned out really well. All three of my kids loved it. The boys ate theirs without mustard though. It sorta reminded me of a Cuban. Only with hotdog. If you're looking for a way to jazz up your hot dogs this summer, this might be a fun way to do it!!
Hot Dog, Ham & Cheese Grilled Cheese Recipe
Adapted from Food Network Magazine, 1000 Easy Recipes
1 hot dog
2 slices thinly slices ham
cheese (I used colby jack)
bread or roll (I used a Arnold Select sandwich thin)
Split cooked hot dog in half and then in half again. Spread one side of bread with butter. Spread the other side with a thin layer of mustard. Place both sides of the bread on a hot pan, butter side down. Quickly layer with cheese, pickles, hot dog, ham and then more cheese. Cook for a couple of minutes until both sides of the bread are toasted. Flip the other side of the bread on top of the sandwich and remove. Enjoy.
**You can also use a panini press for this, I would have but I don't have one.
