Have you ever gone to Costco and bought a huge pack of hot dogs for a BBQ but didn’t end up finishing even one pack of them? This happened to my husband and I. We bought 30+ hot dogs for a birthday party, only to find that we probably used ten hot dogs. Soon after, I went on a trip to Ireland, and while I was gone, my husband ate Hot Dogs every day. Let’s just say he didn’t feel his best self when I came home. Instead of just eating your leftover hot dogs from the summer the same old way, here are some fantastic and creative ways to incorporate them into your cooking.

1. Race Car Hot Dogs

Add some nutrition to an otherwise salty meal by turning your little ones’ hot dog into a veggie car!

2. Taco Dogs

Who doesn’t love yet another way to eat tacos? This meal combines two summer foods into one masterpiece.

3. Twisted Hot Dog Bun

Make a regular croissant bun a hot dog masterpiece!

4. Cheesy Hot Dog Flautas

Wrap up hot dogs in a tortilla with cheese. I would also add some veggies inside along with a little ketchup!

5. Chili Cheese Dog Bake

This Chili Cheese Dog Bake is perfect for game day! Throw it all in the oven and remove when it is golden and your kitchen smells amazing.

6. Carrot Hot Dogs

Chow down on a healthier option with Vegan carrot dogs!

7. 3 Ingredient Crescent Dog Twists

These hot dogs look like a lot of effort, but they’re really quite simple! Serve with veggies and dip.

8. Pretzel Hot Dogs

Create some true street food right at home. Wrap up your hot dogs with some pretzel dough and sprinkle with salt. You won’t even need any toppings for this treat!

9. Hot Dog Nuggets

Instead of making chicken nuggets for the kiddies, if you already have hot dogs, use some pastry dough to create your own hot dog nuggets.

10. Oven Baked Sloppy Joe Dogs

Sloppy Joes are delicious but when you add hot dogs, well, it is just the ultimate cheat day meal!
