My Mama used to make this when I was a kid. It's a twist on the Chili Dog and we ate them with a fork.

This was great! We're not big sloppy-joe fans so I used a can of Wolf Brand Chili instead of the other stuff and it was SO GOOD! I chopped the weinies and boiled them first then added them to a pot of chili cooked through and spooned the glop down over toasted hot dog buns. I covered it with cheese and put the whole thing under the broiler. Wrapped leftovers in foil and just reaheated them in the oven they were great too! Read More

This is very good and easy but I have some TIPS...I actually sliced the hot dogs and put them in the mixture. Then I just took 1 bun and opened it and put the mixture inside. It ends up being a knife and fork meal anyway so why not right? I also added a tablespoon of hot sauce and a tablespoon of ketchup. Read More

What a fun dish to make! Instead of canned sloppy joe sauce I used M's Sloppy Joe Sauce recipe found on this site. Baked for about 10 minutes with cheese on top and it was a hit with my 2 yo and husband so this one goes into the rotation. Read More

These were good. Much better than your average chili dog. As recommended by other reviewrs I added chopped onions and shredded cheese and baked at 350 for 10 minutes until cheese melted. I topped it off with some crumbled bacon and we loved it. Yummy!! Read More

Last minute dinner last night. I don't keep Manwich on hand so I just made my own sloppy joe sauce (variation on Ruby Drive Sloppy Joe recipe which is also on this site). The boys thought this was okay. I liked it because a) hot dogs are almost always cheap and the boys will eat them without arguing and b) this was quick for me to make. Four stars as is five the more personal you make it. NOTE: This needs cheese. Keep that in mind when you make it to top it with your favorite cheese. Read More

I didn't really hold high expectations for this recipe. I was surprised! I was going to chop the hot dogs up and use hamburger buns but then I found some hot dog buns in the freezer... so I ended up only chopping up two weiners and the other six were left whole. I added a can of diced tomatoes and some Italian seasoning to the sauce because it NEEDED more liquid to cook the hot dogs. I also added some diced onion and maybe 3 oz of diced kielbasa sausage simply to use it up. It was really good! With the extra tomatoes it made meals for two days and we used up both packages of buns - very little sauce hot dog and some cheese on the hot dog buns and sloppy joe mix on the hamburger buns! Our two-year old liked the hot dogs and picked out the hamburger. Thanks Moonpie for surprising me! Read More

I'm giving it 5 stars because it is in fact really good (that is if you like the occasional hot dog or sloppy joe). Of course use lean beef and good quality hot dogs for better taste. Read More
