Hotdog Fried Rice

Fired rice can be made with almost any ingredient. I like to have at least 1 protein and 1 veggie along with the rice and eggs. I like to use leftovers in this dish. I used new hotdogs, but the potatoes are my salt potatoes I made days ago, and the peas were leftover too from another meal. This was a huge meal and makes 5-6 servings. Add salt to taste.

  1. In a medium sauce pan, make 4 cups of rice.
  2. Thaw half a package of hotdogs, 5 dogs. Slice your hotdogs into 1/2 inch pieces.
  3. Heat a wok over medium heat. Add 1/4 cup oil and heat till shimmering. Add the hotdogs and cook till both sides are fried. Add any other ingredients that need cooking time (potatoes, fresh carrots, diced onion, anything that can handle stirring).
  4. Cook until additives are hot. Add 4 cups rice, and 2 Tbsp worcestershire sauce, stir and heat.
  5. Once rice is hot, add any of your softer veggies, and add 2 eggs in a well in the center. Heat until eggs are fully cooked, about 1-2 minutes. Serve.

Pigs in a Blanket (Crescent Dogs)

I’ll usually just use a pre-made dough when I make these, however since I just made pizza the other day, I decided I’d just make one pizza and save the rest of the dough for this! When I do buy pre-made dough, I always get pizza crust. Actual crescents are too buttery and sweet to compliment the hot dog well in my opinion. I’m also a big fan of corn dogs so that probably plays a role.
I like to serve these with mustard or dip made with mustard and french onion soup mix packets. I also cut the dogs in half to make smaller dogs, however you can use bigger dogs if you cut the dough wider. I will also instruct you to fold the dough over itself more than I did, since most of mine popped open.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Grab a large baking sheet and spray with nonstick spray.
  2. Cut your hot dogs in half.
  3. Open a roll of pizza dough or make your favorite pizza dough. You will only need enough dough for half a pizza.
  4. Roll out pizza dough into a square that is only about 1/4 inch thick.
  5. Cut the dough into 1+ inch wide strips. Wrap the dough around your dog, overlapping the dough 1/3 inch. Press the dough together, and place seam side down on prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 18 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and serve!
