Oven Hot Dogs

Maybe I shouldn’t admit this, but I love hot dogs. I mean, I really love hot dogs. I think that’s probably because of oven hot dogs.

oven hot dogs

I know, they sound crazy. And you have to eat them with a fork and knife.  But I promise oven hot dogs are absolutely delicious. My dad made these for us, and I think his mom started the trend when he was a kid. And they aren’t only delicious out of nostalgia–my husband loves them, and my brother told me his wife requests oven hot dogs every time they’re lost for what to eat.

Because this is a family recipe, I took step-by-step photos. Hopefully my dad will comment telling me what I did wrong because mine still never taste as good as his! It’s funny how that always happens, right?

oven hot dogs
Here’s what you need: hot dogs, hot dog buns, mayonnaise, mustard, sweet relish, chili, cheese, and diced onions.

oven hot dogs
Cover the inside of the buns with mayonnaise. Lots of mayonnaise!

Add the hot dogs and squish them together in a baking dish. Normally there would be one more, but, um… I ate it before it made it to the pan…
A 9×13″ pan is perfect for eight hot dogs! We like ‘em really packed in there.

Add a bit of mustard if that’s your thing.

Now add sweet relish! But I think I messed up–I think the sweet relish is better when put at the bottom of the bun with the mayonnaise.
Edit: My sister, who claims to have “perfected the OHDs,” says I didn’t use enough relish! And, actually, I didn’t–but that was all I had left in the jar.
Edit 2: A few comments have complained that the relish was overwhelming, so proceed with caution! I love sweet relish, but if you don’t you might want to use less or switch to dill.

Top with chili! Just cold chili straight from the can.
I really dislike beans and have tried chili without beans, but that just doesnt’ taste right for oven hot dogs.
Second edit: Victoria again said that I need more chili and need to be messier. The hot dogs should barely be able to handle all the stuff you put on top and should be falling apart when they come out of the oven! My perfectionist tendencies get in the way of that, so please get a bit crazier.

Top with grated cheddar.

Dice your onions. My dad always made a few without onions for kids, but when he finally convinced me to try them with onions I realized that’s the way to go.

oven hot dogs
Throw on the onions

oven hot dogs
Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350F for 45 minutes.

And now you’re done! The top with be crispy, which is why you need a fork and knife. Delicious.

Oven Hot Dogs
8 hot dogs
8 hot dog buns
1 can of chili
1/2 an onion, diced
cheddar cheese
sweet relish

Line inside of hot dog buns with mayonnaise and sweet relish. Evenly add mustard. Fill with hot dogs and squish into a 13×9″ baking pan.

Top hot dogs with chili, cheese, and diced onion. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350F for 45 minutes.

Carefully remove from the pan with a spatula–I dropped one on the floor the other day :(


  • Victoria McCoy

    I’ve mastered the OHDs.
    You needed to add more relish and more chili. I know. It seems like too much. But you have to pretty much stuff the bun with everything you can. That’s what makes it messy and delicious.

    P.s. I can’t believe you told our family secret…

    • Alyssa

      I haven’t had dad’s oven hot dogs in years! But now that you bring it up, mine definitely don’t seem messy enough.

      Do you put the relish in the bottom, with the mayonnaise? That’s what I usually do. And I typically add more but ran out :(

      I wasn’t going to, but I posted an oven hot dog photo somewhere else, and too many people asked for the recipe! ;)

      17 December 2010
      • Victoria McCoy

        He didn’t teach me to put them in the bottom. Just a lot more..

        17 December 2010
  • This must definitely be a Peet family thing because Grandma made those every time we took family trips to Double Lake. They would sit in the dash the whole way to the lake so they could stay warmed by the sun. And they are absolutely delicious.

    17 December 2010
    • Faith

      Double Lake!! When I was a teen, Double Lake was a favorite camping place for my family. We always tried to get our same spot by the lake….such good memories!

      12 July 2015
  • I have never heard of OHDs, but I think this is how I will make them from now on…the look delicious!

    18 December 2010
  • You make hotdogs look good! ;) I had no idea a hotdog could look so appetizing. We will have to try this out!

    18 December 2010
  • Ive never heard of something as amazing as these!!!! im going to have to try them!

    18 December 2010
  • Holly

    OH. MY. YUMMYNESS. This looks delicious. I love this idea, thank you so much for sharing it =)

  • akjenny

    I wish I’d seen this when the kids were still lil’ tykes. Now when I get caught making them I’ll have no excuse.

    19 December 2010
  • I have a somewhat secret addiction to hot dogs too, though my addiction generally involves a stick and a campfire. I’m going to have to give these a try though.

    Is sweet relish different than plain ol’ relish?

    19 December 2010
    • Alyssa

      I went camping a lot as a kid but can’t remember ever actually eating roasted hot dogs at the campfire! Marshmallows, though, were definitely there.

      Around here we also have dill relish, which isn’t sweet. I really never use dill relish unless a recipe calls for it specifically.

      19 December 2010
  • Carla

    Oh wow, those are great looking hot dogs. I want a bite!

    19 December 2010
  • When i was younger a friend of my parents would fix them for us. We called them Gale”s hot dogs. I still fix them today at least once or twice a month. Love them even now that i am 68. Thanks for shearring this with me, Charlie

    19 December 2010
  • I will substitue these with vegetarian frankfurters and chili because these sounf great!

    19 December 2010
  • something very simple, yet to die for!!! I love hot dogs with lotsa relish n onions

    21 December 2010
  • It looks so delicious! Absolutely mouth-watering!

    21 December 2010
  • Wow, I have never heard of baking hotdogs in the oven, but they look really good and next time I have some friends over, I think I’ll try it out! Thanks for sharing.

    P.S. Whenever I try to duplicate my moms recipes, they never come out the same, no matter how simple it is :)

    21 December 2010
  • Out of all of the decadence on Foodgawker today, the one thing that caught my eye was your wonderful Oven Hot Dogs!! I love it. I’ve never made them this way. What a great idea.

    21 December 2010
  • These look soooo good! I will definitely be trying. Thanks so much for sharing your family recipe!

    21 December 2010
  • Ilaamia

    These look good !
    Can I use something different then Relish ? We dont have relish where I live.Can i just use pickle or something?

    21 December 2010
    • Alyssa

      It all depends on the taste you prefer! Chopped pickle wouldn’t compare to sweet relish but would be similar to dill relish, which some people prefer on their hot dogs. You would be fine to omit it all together, though.

      21 December 2010
      • Ilaamia

        Thanks for your answer!Is it possible to make homemade sweet relish ? Is there a recipe for ? I have never eaten it and never heard of it actually so I don’t know what’s in it.

        21 December 2010
  • You just made my friggin’ day! Holiday stress, work stress, what to make for dinner stress- I saw this and said that’s it- I’m makin’ oven baked doggies tonight- my wife will think I’m nuts, but hey, I’m cooking-some homemade fries-and viola’ perfect dinner. THank you-thank you , thank you……..

    21 December 2010
  • You know, now I will sit and eat 6 hotdogs and it’s all your fault. My kids will eat a few bites, and I can’t stand to throw out good food. I’ll be forced to finish them off. My husband will get one or two.
    Seriously, this looks incredibly good. I love Sonic’s chili cheese dogs with onions, and this looks waaaaay better.

    21 December 2010
    • Alyssa

      I always get hot dogs at Sonic too! But these are way better :) I feel your problem–I usually eat two OHDs at once and then come back for another an hour or so later

      21 December 2010
  • This is such a great idea, I can’t wait to try them!

    21 December 2010
  • I have a complete hotdog addiction too but these look to be the best I’ve ever seen. If I wasn’t having a really fussy-eating friend around for dinner I would have these tonight. They’ll have to wait ’til tomorrow….BUT NO LATER!

  • Oh my god, these look amazing, but this is coming from a hot dog connoisseur. This is the first meal I’m making after christmas. Except I might put a chicago style spin on it using dill relish and adding sport peppers to whats already there. Looks soo yummy.

    22 December 2010
  • They look wonderful! Now you’ve got me craving these baked chili dogs!! :)

    My dad cooked hot dogs like this when we were kids. The only difference he wrapped each individually in foil. When I married and had two stepsons, I made them, wrapped them in foil and we tossed them on the fire while camping. I love how you’d done them here… I’m going to make them like this soon! Thank you for bring such good memories back.

    29 December 2010
  • I made miniature versions of these without the chili and they were so good, I’m dying to make them again, only properly this time. I can’t even imagine them being better with chili. They were pretty darn amazing just on their own. Thanks for this recipe. I’d never heard of cooking hot dogs this way before and now I think this’ll be the only way I cook hot dogs ever again.

    29 December 2010
  • This sounds amazing!

    5 January 2011
  • And now I am sad because I too love hot dogs and all the stuff on there and they look like ridiculously messy, fantastic, comfort food, but I am too pregnant to eat these thanks to my buddies, heartburn and child kicking Mommy in the stomach… these are going on the things I haven’t been able to eat for a year list to be made upon arrival home from the hospital in a week.

    6 January 2011
  • I want to try these so badly…but I wonder how it would come out in the toaster oven…I’m such a toaster oven cooker! But I don’t want to mess them up because they look SO delish!!

    11 January 2011
    • Alyssa

      Go for it! I use my toaster oven as a “regular” oven all the time! My dad even made a pie in mine at Thanksgiving when the big oven was taken over by turkey.

      11 January 2011
      • I ended up making them in the regular oven but they were a household hit!! They’ll probably get made in the toaster oven eventually! Still such a great recipe!

        19 January 2011
      • Christina

        I assume these can be cooked in solar cooker – any suggestions?

        30 October 2011
  • HungryAnon

    I just made these today. Though I put some garlic in my mayo and added a bit of garlic chili sauce. Hot as hell, but oh so good. I also made a slaw with it. It was a very good dinner. Thanks to you and your dad.

  • Terry

    Can’t wait to try these tonight! It’s a little early,7:45 AM, for hot dogs! 45 minutes at 350 sounds like a lot. Have you ever had them burn?

    25 January 2011
    • Alyssa

      Nope they never burn! I think the aluminum foil helps with that. I’d say definitely don’t cook them for longer than 45 minutes, but it wouldn’t hurt too much to cut down the time to 35 minutes if you don’t want them so crispy.

      25 January 2011
  • Ilaamia

    Can I use something else then 1 can of chili ???
    I don’t know if I can find it where I live.

    These are delicious! They remind me of the “Coney Island Special” dish that is popular in the Detroit area (that is hotdog with chili, mustard and onions). It’s a great “away from the hometown” meal! My husband loves these and has been asking for them all week!

  • Ria

    this looks incredible! i didn’t think my favorite food could be improved upon, but you and your dad have definitely proved me wrong.i have a stupid question though- should the hot dogs be boiled before they go into the oven? thanks!

    29 August 2011
    • Alyssa

      No stupid questions! They don’t need to be boiled–they definitely have time enough to heat up in that 45 minutes in the oven :)

      29 August 2011

  • ashley wise

    are the dogs cooked when you place them in the bun or do you put them on straight out of the fridge?

    28 September 2011
    • Alyssa

      They go in straight from the fridge!

      28 September 2011
  • Yum, they look so good and I can’t wait to make some tonight but first I have important questions! How do these hold up in the fridge? Are they still good microwaved the day after? Do you poke holes in them as you would microwaving them? Thanks for the great share.

    30 September 2011
    • Alyssa

      They hold up surprisingly well in the fridge. I just cut them in half (so they will heat a bit better) and pop them in the microwave a few minutes. If you want, you can put them in the oven/toaster oven a while to get the crispy edges back, but I like ‘em kinda soggy the second day. We are not big on leftovers in this house, but oven hot dogs never stay in the fridge for more than a day! We’ll eat them for three meals in a row sometimes, haha

      I don’t poke holes in them! I’ve never heard of that.

      30 September 2011
  • Never heard of it?! I don’t know why but I just assumed that everyone knew this , like people know the sun is bright. I was always taught that if you didn’t poke holes in them with a fork or knife the hot dogs would contort in weird shapes or explode! It’s been a while since I’ve tested this out though. Guess i’ll be cooking hotdogs and staring at the sun tomorrow.

    How are they not burnt to an absolute crisp.

    • Alyssa

      They have never, ever come out burnt. They need all that time to get crispy.

    Do you use regular mayo or miracle whip? Im a miracle whip fan myself dont like regular but my husband doesnt like miracle whip lol he likes regular im just wondering if they would be good with either of them!!!

      I use regular mayonnaise, but I’m sure either would be fine!

    29 October 2011
    • Alyssa

      They reheat pretty well, surprisingly. At least enough so that we eat the all the leftovers the next day! I just cut them in half and stick ‘em in the microwave for a couple minutes

      30 October 2011
  • These look absolutely amazing! I will be trying it soon. I just have one question, do you cook the hot dogs first or no? I am a cooking noob jeje.

    30 October 2011
    • Alyssa

      No need to do that! Hot dogs are pre-cooked, and the 45 minutes in the oven is more than enough time for them to heat up.

      31 October 2011
  • Saw this on pinterest What brand of hotdogs do you usually use? There are so many brands and types I never know what to buy! This sounds so easy I am making this tonight before trick or treating. Do you think they could be assembed ahead and placed in the fridge for a few hours before baking or would this make everything soggy?

    31 October 2011
    • Alyssa

      I am a lover if the fancy all-beef hot dogs, but fir these I like to stick with the cheap stuff! Usually Oscar Mayer-oven hot dogs need cheap everything, which is why I also use canned chili (this is the only time it appears in my house). :)

      I think they will be fine in the fridge for a while, but I would wait and put the chili on just before sticking them in the oven just to be safe.

      31 October 2011
      • Thanks for responding! I didn’t end up making any of it ahead of time… the prep was so fast, even easier than a crockpot meal because you don’t have to remember to start it in the morning! They JUST went into the oven.

    These look sooo good. I saved them on my favorite bar and pinned them on pinterest. I went and got the stuff and figured I’d make them today at lunch because my sister and niece were suppose to be here. Thank god they canceled. I made them at dinner instead. I followed exactly. I love all the ingredients and ooey gooey comfort food. This was not for me at all! We threw more than half away and then I stole the hot dogs out of the buns and rinsed them and put them on a fresh bun for the kids… I’m glad it’s a family fave, but I don’t get what the deal is. Looked soooo much better than they tasted.

    28 November 2011
    • Alyssa

      I’m very sorry it didn’t work out for you! I know how frustrating it is when an exciting recipe ends up disappointing. Because of that, I never share anything I don’t fully believe in. This is one of my favorite meals, but we all have different tastes.

      Again, I am sorry you did not like it! I’m glad you were able to reuse the hot dogs and didn’t have to throw it all out.

        So last night when I was cooking dinner I realized that my oven knob was not turning right. Someone had put the temp knob on wrong and so it was not accurate. I have no idea how long it has been like this. I might maybe possibly try this again in a smaller batch and see what happens…

        2 December 2011
        • Alyssa

          Oh no! That could really throw you off! I hope they turn out better if you try them again. Yours is the first negative comment I’ve received! Baking covered at 350 for 45 minutes is really imperative to the recipe, so the temperature being too low (which I assume yours was since being too hot with cause burning) might have been the reason you didn’t like them.

    I showed this recipe to a friend and they made it whilst we were visiting. It was ok but didn’t wow me. Was kinda soggy, bland, and the bun was kinda hard where it wasn’t soggy. I wasn’t sure why, it sounded so good D:

    That was months ago. The other night on a whim, me and the boyfriend decided to grab the few things we were missing for the recipe to try making it ourselves. WOW. What. A. Difference. I have NO idea what the friends did differently but sheesh. I THINK they didn’t cover it with foil when it cooked. Also, we used dill relish instead just because we prefer it.

    We now have the basic ingredients sitting around to make it again when we don’t know what else to do. Awesome recipe!

    1 December 2011
    • Alyssa

      I’m so glad you gave it a second chance! The recipe instructions are very important. I think people read “covered for 45 minutes at 350″ and think it sounds ridiculous and don’t trust that will work out, but that’s the combo you need to make sure everything is melted and warm without being too soggy or crunchy.

      2 December 2011
    • Your first time is how ours came out too. I had it covered in foil. Next time though I think I might wrap each one in foil individually. Also I will switch to the dill relish. We didn’t like the sweet relish at all… it was really all you could taste.

      I’m all for giving this another go though.

    Made a vegetarian version of these using Smart Dogs and Annie’s Vegetarian chili and it turned out fantastic. My husband, who is a meat eater and *real* hot dog lover loved them!

    5 December 2011
    • Addy

      I found out the friends put the relish at the bottom of the bun, under the dog. We didn’t do that, so maybe that made them soggy?

The mayo (which sounds gross) does something extraordinary. I started out making them like individual hotdogs in a pan–trying to stuff each bun–at some point I started thinking of it as a casserole and just scattered the chopped onion and shredded cheese EVERYWHERE!! I was out of pickle relish so I subbed pickled banana peppers –it was still wonderful. This is our new way of making chili dogs from now on. Thanks so much for sharing!

    These are absolutely delicious!! And I will be forever grateful to you for posting these!!! My entire family loves hot dogs but you can only eat them so much in a month. Now that I have this recipe we can’t wait to eat hot dogs!!! These are so amazingly delicious. Thank you so much for sharing!

    21 December 2011
  • Mine are in the oven now… They look sooo good!!! :D

  • Wendy

    I grew up on these and still make them now. We called them Coney Islands! I dont add the pickle relish though but it does sound like a great addition. I will add that next time.

    28 December 2011
  • These were SO good!! They are the perfect chili dog!! YUM. I was forced to do one thing different because I didn’t have mayo– I used mustard on the bun. It was like a wonderful chili dog with added zest from the relish and mustard! Can’t wait til I can make them again with all the right ingredients! Thanks for the Recipe!

    I am very excited to try these tonight. I do have a question though. I am only making 4 or 5. Do you think I should still cook them for 45 minutes? I found you on Pinterest. Thank you!

    3 January 2012
    • Alyssa

      I would say definitely don’t cook them for less than 30, and remember to follow all other instructions–375 F and tight aluminum foil!

    What if you don’t like mayo what would you suggest to use instead? I had a bad experience with mayo and my hubby hates it. I would love to try these. Sounds really good. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    • Alyssa

      My mom doesn’t like mayo, so my dad makes them without for her. I’ve never had them that way, but I’ve heard others say they’re still great!

      6 January 2012
      • Rebecca

        thanks. Just didnt know if they would taste good without the mayo we have a gas stove/oven i hate it but we live in my hubby’s grandma’s house she is in the nursing home so we are living here and it has taken me forever to get used to it.What temperture/time would you suggest for a gas stove/oven?

    Do you really bake the buns w/ mayo for 45 min and then again once all the stuff is in them for 45 min?

    31 January 2012
    • Alyssa

      No! You only bake them once–after all the toppings are put on. Line the tray with buns, add mayo and other ingredients, and bake for 45. Then they’re ready to eat!

      31 January 2012
  • MizV

    Making these as I type!! Only 27 minutes to go! I am expecting to be blown away, especially because of all the positive feedback! I didn’t use the relish because I’m not a fan, and my chili, and mustard are different brands so I’m hoping they still taste as amazing as they look in your photos!

  • Do you cook the hot dogs before you bake them??

    1 March 2012
    • Alyssa

      Noope–everything warms up together in the oven.

      1 March 2012
  • This sounds like the perfect pot luck, actually, or work party bring-along. What is the “amazing thing” that happens with the mayo once it’s baked into the bun? I’m curious! I live alone so I can’t bake a tray of dogs until I have an event to cook for!

    2 March 2012
    • Alyssa

      Hmm, I can’t really say. It’s just that the mayonnaise makes the bread very mushy, which contrasts really well to the crunchiness of the outside/tops of the buns.

      I would totally still make these alone for myself! haha. I usually eat two every time I make them, and then the leftovers are gone after another day.

      5 March 2012

    Thank you for sharing your family secret recipe! I made these for me and the beau last night, (first, he complained that I didn’t just slap them together and serve them within 10 min, but then…) he loved them and said they were the best chili-dogs he ever had! I had to agree, they were amazing! I omitted the sweet relish, we’re not big on it, but they still turned out tasty. He took the leftovers for lunch and they reheated well, too. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    20 March 2012
  • […] Oven Hot Dogs We made these last week and I thought they were DELISH!! Messy and gooey but very tasty.  Hubs is not impressed with messy foods, so he could care less if they show up again.  But, I like my hot dogs and I liked these!!  Just make sure you follow her directions and don’t skimp on the mayo, mustard, the relish or the cheese.

    So do you really have to bake the buns with mayo for 45 mins first then bake another 45 mins with everything else on it? Seems like a lot

    21 April 2012

      No, definitely don’t do that! You assemble the hot dogs totally and then bake once for 45 minutes.

    I have been making Hot Dogs like this for years but I wrap each one in foil…some time I stick them wrapped in the crock pot…everyone who has tried them “LOVE THEM” some time even if they are not fond of hot dogs…

    25 June 2012
    • Michele ºÜº

      I was wondering if the hot dogs are individually wrapped and cooked in the crockpot, if they turn out the same as all together in a pan or soggy.

      I made these the other night, in my gas oven, at 350º for 45 minutes covered in foil and they were difficult to get out of the pan, not very crispy anywhere. I had half of one left over and heated it in cast iron skillet, so it got a bit crispy and was very good!

      Then I read in one comment that they should be cooked at 375º for 45 minutes and wonder if that will give me the desired results.

      Thanks for a great recipe; I’ve never been much of a hot dog fan but am now. :) {Oh, I did omit the relish, as we don’t care for relish. Daughter liked it with mayo and she doesn’t like mayo.}

  • Kim

    I’m making these right now for our 4th of July. I’m using turkey dogs and Hormel turkey chili. I didn’t have relish at home, so I sliced up some bread & butter pickles and put just a few on the bottom of the buns. I also added ketchup.

    4 July 2012
  • Sarah

    I don’t eat chili dogs but thank you for this recipe. When my husband likes his food he closes his eyes and nods while eating it… he nodded all the way through two of these.

    26 July 2012
  • Sol

    I made these a week or so ago and they are very yummy! Would have cut back on the relish and mustard a little, but she’s right when she says you have HAVE HAVE to put a good amount of mayo on it. I tried wrapping them separately and found two issues: They don’t quite get as crispy as I imagined and trying to get them all “loaded” without tipping over is a bit more difficult. Next time I will definitely try them unwrapped.

      I’ve never tried that, so I can’t say for sure. I would have some worries about the bread becoming soggy, but I think everything would work out well if you assemble it as you like but omit the chili. Then you can put the chili on right before they go into the oven!

  • I made these for my kids, the oldest of which has a 23 yr old son. I mix one tablespoon of each of mustard, mayo, and both sweet and dill relish. It gives you 1/2 tablespoon per dog and just seems to go quicker. Proceed with the chili, cheese and onions. Delish! Enjoy!

    For you hot dog fanatics, we recently discovered hot dogs with cheese in them, which we like so much better than plain hot dogs. I bet this would be great with those. My mom used to fix tuna salad sandwiches in the oven using hamburger buns. Wrapped each sandwich in foil. Toasty on the outside. Boy were those good.

  • do you cook the hot dogs first before you put them in the bun?

  • Jackie Sarrasin Dubill Myth 7: Hot dogs are pre-cooked, so it's okay to eat them raw. Fact: Actually, it's important to always reheat hot dogs until they're steaming hot. Some ready-to-eat foods, such as hot dogs, can become contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes after they have been processed and packaged at the plant.

  • Janet Amelia , no, you wouldn't want to eat them cold, but I would think that after baking for 45 minutes that would bring them to the "steaming hot" point, so they would be okay without being "precooked".

  • why the mayo? could we use butter I'm not sure what the mayo is for my son wants to try this but he don't like mayo

    8 June 2015
  • I did not use mayo and they were really good my son said I should have made more

    9 June 2015
  • i have made these a coupe of times and now i can only eat my hot dogs with mayo they are the best hot dogs i have ever eaten

    12 July 2015
  • I just made these and they turned out terrible! I followed the directions perfectly and the buns came out hard and the bottom soggy. Never making these ever again.

  • I made these tonight and the whole family loved them. I've added this recipe to my "Tried, Tested, and Approved" and will make again.

  • I am making these tonight because Ineed an easy meal, made them a few weeks ago and they were really good, I noticed someone saying theirs came out soggy,, that had to be dissappointing…possibly too much relish??? Mine were lightly toasted but no sog to them. They are not for eating without a fork though…fully loaded,,, nice break for a day I dont want to put much effort into cooking.

    i think my son will love these. Thanks for the receipe!

    This is cooked for 45 minutes, so I have no question that the hotdogs end up fully cooked. However, a few people have commented that hot dogs are safe to eat raw. They are not. They need to be fully cooked. I work for public health, and we dealt with an outbreak of food poisoning as a result of a family eating raw hot dogs. Be careful folks!

  • I think you should try them one more time and not so much relish on them, which I think if you put to much on cause them to be soggy.

    22 August 2015
  • Not the same and not has good have done it.

    22 August 2015
  • Why not but I think the chili is much better.

  • I made them last night, and they were awesome! I used Italian bread hot dog buns (a little stronger), so I was able to pick them up and eat them. I did skip the relish, so maybe that made them less soggy. Is it possible you forgot to cover them with foil? That would definitely cause hard tops. These were REALLY good. I think my husband is driving down to Virginia today to slap his mother, they were so good. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  • Super easy an SO good!! My family loved them! I'll definitely be making these again!

    These are amazing. I took your advise and loaded them up. They came out where some of the bun was crisp with a chewy center. Some of the bun was soft. I think it was just outside from being soggy but not. If that made a bit of sense. Knowing it had the potential, I made sure there was plenty of mayo barrier to help with that. ;) (personally I don’t mind a bit of sogginess that comes from great ingredients.) I used my own homemade sweet relish, homemade chili, larger buns made for brawts, and a spicy mustard. It was a great dish and I’m looking forward to leftovers. ;)

      I have made these several times now. They are great as leftovers too. I LOVE them. There is something magical that happens when the mayo and relish combine. Creamy and sweet with the spicy chili and mustard! When my kids want hot dogs, getting the ingredients out for this is done immediately. My favorite way to eat hotdogs now.

      6 August 2017
  • Great recipe! What about one side of the bun with the mayo and the other side with BBQ sauce,

  • Kelly

    Can you please clarify what is the correct oven temp? Is it 350 or 375? In a comment you said 375 for 45 min, but the recipe instructions say 350 for 45 min. Thank you!!

  • […] Yes, you can bake hot dogs in the oven. This is not some type of hot dog casserole but rather hot dogs with buns that are actually baked in the oven. These baked hot dogs are topped with chili, onions and cheese. This is a super easy recipe that takes very little time to prepare. Read full recipe here. […]
