In order to not make a mess with these, the easiest thing that I've always done is just butter the bread and lay it on a square piece of tin foil. then just roll it up and twist the ends and cook for about 12-15 minutes and it usually all stays together! Read More

These are a good idea however I think one would have to use the square sandwich bread. We used the rounded top bread and had a mess on our hands because the bread tore and would not wrap around the hot dog. The kids were not too impressed either. Read More

I make these when I need a quick snack but it works alot better to use Grands or any other of the jumbo size refrigerator biscuits and simply stretch and wrap the biscuit around the hotdog and cheese. Bake for the time stated on your tube of biscuits and be sure to seal the edges well. Read More

Fun for kids and teens. We used to call these "Skater Dogs" When I was in school and making these. All my friends loved them. However I made them the same way (Folded in half) and in a pan like making grilled cheese sandwiches. They were much better like that. I tried this way and found that the skin on the beef was more tough after being in the oven for 20 minutes. The cheese was over done this way and honestly the bread doesn't brown as well (at least in my oven) and just got a bit of color and more dry. I'd recommend making these in a pan instead of in the oven. Taste is better and it's done quicker. Read More

I had never heard of these until my husband was waxing nostalgic for his childhood school lunches. I made these and he almost cried from happiness! They brought back great memories for him and they were pretty darn tasty too! Thanks for posting this fun retro recipe! Read More

These were so cool and very kid friendly! They are very fast to prep. Just slather the butter place the cheese and hot dog and wrap. I ended up using 3 toothpicks to secure it because just using one tore the bread. The beef franks are a little too big for my kids so I used regular hot dogs. As much as I love cooking I don't do it until after my little ones are in bed so I'm really happy about this because I can throw it together and let it bake while I play with them. Thank you for posting this recipe it's given me so much more than just the Weiner Winks! One more thing instead of getting butter on my fingers while I roll it I just wrap the hot dog first and then spray the no calorie butter spray on the outside. Still bakes up nice and toasty!

I followed the directions exactly with perfect results. I have no idea WHY these are so great but they are. Maybe it's the nostalgia of school days or maybe the combination of butter and cheese with a hotdog. At any rate- my whole family loves them. Read More
