This week’s Secret Ingredient


Hebrew National Hot Dogs

Hebrew National Franks

Once again, I called in my secret weapon team, the brilliant minds behind the Peanut Butter, Bacon, Apple and Honey sandwich, Monkey and Princess.

We discussed Octopus dogs, baked franks casseroles, franks and fries.. and more.

The kids decided that they wanted to make bite sized dippin’ dogs.  My kids, like most, love finger foods and finger foods that you can dip — even better!

We took one pack of Hebrew National Franks and two tubes of chilled refrigerated croissant dough.  We cut the franks in half, rolled out the croissant dough, each croissant triangle gets one frank half – and fixings if you like them – we added 1/2 slice of cheese to some, a couple of peperoncini to some of the others, rolled them up and baked them for about 20 minutes. (Use or save the leftover croissant dough)

While they were baking we made some beans and some little bowls of dipping sauces – ketchup, mustard, bbq sauceand for Nathan and me — a chili garlic sour cream sauce.

We had fun sitting around the table, dipping the franks into the sauces, and watching the kids talk about how much fun they had and how proud they were of the meal they’d made.

    Hi, I’m still voting but your last link, on the bottom of both posts, doesn’t take you to the right place. Both posts I”ve had to scroll back up to the top or the first link to get to the right page. Just thought I’d let you know.

    I love these dippin’ dogs, my kids would LOVE them!

      Thanks for letting me know, Debbi 😉 They gave us customized short-links, I guess so they can track it, that’s the one that takes you to the main HEB page instead of to the voting page! I appreciate you finding the right link and voting!!

    Yum. We love making a variation of these – though umm we make our own dough. That puts you over the ingredient limit, I suppose. Bummer. In fact, I saw some in the fridge today and decided to make them for dinner tomorrow 😉 yum yum yum :)
