Michigan Stuffed Hot Dogs

Side Dish Jody enjoys watching the cooking channel. I am not sure what this channel is actually called, but you know which one I am talking about.

I do know however that she is not a fan of Rachel Ray, one of the networks mega-stars who has recently made the transition to network TV.

I was not a big fan of Rachel Ray either, until I came across her recipe for this hot dog.

Now she calls it a Michigan hot dog, but nothing in the hot dog signifies Michigan (my home state).

The recipe looks good though. Cook some up and let me know your thoughts!

Hot Dog of the Week: Thailand ice cream dog

Over the years I have been asked what constitutes a 'hot dog'.

Kielbasa- yes. Polish sausage-yes. Foot long- just one hot dog. Cocktail weiners-do not count in a hot dog total. Brawurst-yes.

There are several kinds of encased meat that a person can put on a bun that resemble in similarity to a hot dog.

But does anything and everything that goes in a hot dog bun count? No.

How about ice cream? Are you kiding-not a chance.

These folks in Thailand though found a tasty way to stuff a bun though.
