Everyone has their own way of doing Thanksgiving.
However, one thing is for sure; food is at the center of all celebrations.
There is nothing better than spending time with friends and family, eating delicious food, and taking the time to be thankful for life’s pleasures.
While we are sure you have already got your Thanksgiving turkey recipes down to perfection, we have some great hot dog recipes to add to the mix on November 24th.
Thanksgiving Cheese Dogs
There is only one place to begin, and that is with this delicious Thanksgiving cheese dog recipe. It is simple but scrumptious – the perfect combination.
You will need:
- six hot dogs
- six popsicle sticks
- six pieces of Kraft cheese singles
- a half sleeve of saltine crackers
How to make
- Crush the sleeve of saltines thoroughly
- Simply skewer the hot dogs and roast them over an open flame.
- While they are still hot, wrap the cheese around the hot dog, pressing the seams together so the edges seal.
- Roll and press the cheese-wrapped dog into the crackers straight away.
