Today’s Menu: Cheddar Chili Dogs



For Breakfast this morning I fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties, prepared a Scrambled Egg, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Whole Bread, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another sunny and beautiful day out there again! A bit warmer and more humid, but still nice out. After Breakfast I started a load of laundry and then headed out to Meijer and then by Kroger to pick up a few things for Mom. After Lunch headed up to the rehab center to see Dad. Back home finished up laundry and done for the day. Got the cart out for a spin around the neighborhood. For Dinner tonight its CHEDDAR CHILI DOGS.



I tried these for the first time around a month ago and really liked them so I’m having so I’m having them again. They’re a nice alternative to my Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys. 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 (optional), Tomato (optional), and Cheese. These turned out fantastic, love the Beans and Cheddar toppings.



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 Breyer’s 100 Calorie Vanilla Cup.








Chili Beans with a touch of chili powder add some heat to these Cheddar chili dogs with bacon, onion and tomato.

  1. We’ve got Chili Cheese Dogs on our weekly planner – for a change of pace, have you ever tried a smoked cheese? Just adds another layer of flavor to a familiar comfort supper. We like smoked Gouda because it melts easily, but any smoked cheese will do.

    • Yes I’ve tried that, works great.

  2. Interesting recipe….would love to taste it 🙂
