I have gotten a lot of hamburger and a bunch of free hot dogs lately. I need some recipe ideas to use these. Any help would be appreciated.

I second the pigs in a blanket.....put a hotdog and some cheese inside a crescent roll. Yummm!

Brown the hamburger and add taco sauce for tacos. How about hamburger helper? Make meatloaf with the hamburger. Put the hamburger in some homemade chili or soup. Make shepherds pie with the browned hamburger. An old time favorite growing up, browned hamburger and pork-n-beans mixed together. Make swedish meatballs. How about your basic hamburger patty? Put the hotdogs in mac-n-cheese. Take a slice of french bread, put a hotdog cut lengthwise on it and sprinkle with cheese - broil in the oven.

When I was growing up, my Mom would split a hotdog and then put mashed potatoes and cheese on the top and bake them. It wasn't my favorite, but it's a different idea.

You can make meatballs and freeze them for future meals. I mixed up a batch on Saturday and seperated them into freezer backs. It is GREAT when you have had a busy day just pop them out. You can make Spagetti and Meatballs - Sweet and Sour Meatballs with Fried Rice - Teraki and Honey Meatballs with Stir Fry. Meatballs Subsandwiches.

Their was also a great recipe called Cheeseburgers in the crockpot my kids LOVE this.

C R O C K P O T P I C K
Cheeseburger Sandwiches

1 pounds lean ground beef
1 teaspoon garlic-pepper blend
1 package pasteurized process cheese spread, (8 ounces) diced
2 tablespoons milk
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 sandwich buns

In a large skillet, brown ground beef and garlic-pepper blend until
thoroughly cooked. Drain. In a 3 or 4 quart crock pot, combine cooked
ground beef and all remaining ingredients except buns; mix well. Cover;
cook on low setting for 6 to 7 hours.

To serve: spoon mixture onto sandwich buns you can also mix it with shell pasta and it is good that way too.


Tater Tot casserole you can make and also make a 2nd to freeze. Mini Hamburgers you make a mixutre and put them into a grands biscut and bake them they are good too.

Here is a recipe for your hot dogs (the left overs freeze really well- Yes me and my crockpot are good friends )

Sloppy Dogs

8 to 10 hot dogs, chopped into 1 inch pieces
1 15oz can chili beans
1 6oz can tomato paste
1/4 cup ketchup
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp prepared yellow mustard
1 Tbs brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
hamburger or hot dog buns

Combine all ingredients, except cheese and buns, put into slowcooker.
Cover; cook on low 6 to 8 hours or high 3 to 4 hours. Ten minutes before the end of cooking, stir in the cheddar cheese to melt slightly. Sever on hamburger or hotdog buns. Serves 6


I will quit rambling! Have a great night
Amie

Default Making corn dogs?

Thanks for the ideas. I tried making corn dogs last night, but I am having a hard time getting the cornbread mix to stick - any ideas on an easy corn dog recipe.

Try inside out cheeseburgers. You make twice as many patties as you need (1/2 the size) put some shredded cheese and cooked bacon on top of one patty and then put another on top of it and seal the edges together. It's super easy and a fun, different idea!

I just bake it in a dish. I put in the hot dogs, and then pour the batter over the top and bake. You can't pick them up, but they taste just the same. My kids love them. Plus they are so easy, I don't mind making them.

For the corndogs, make sure that the hot dogs are dry and then coat with a little corn starch before dippin in the batter. This works with every other meat I've batter, so it would probably work with hot dogs too. HTH!
