Reuben Dogs

These were the surprise hit dinner of last week! I just happened to be flipping through the Every Day with Racheal Ray grilling issue from last year~I saved it because it was full of good stuff~when I saw this recipe. It caught my eye because I had hot dogs, buns and a can of sauerkraut that needed to be eaten:)

As you can see, all of my fine china~everyday dishes included~has gone into a box already. So we are using the very finest of Styrofoam and paper!

First I got my toppings ready. They included sauerkraut, sliced dill pickles, Swiss cheese slices and this yummy sauce:
Special Sauce
1/3 cup ketchup
1/3 cup sour cream
1 tbsp smoked paprika
Blend well.

Next take your hot dogs (we love Oscar Meyers' Premium Beef No Nitrites No Nitrates added) and split them lengthwise, but don't cut them all the way through. Put them on the grill cut-side-down for about 2-3 minutes. Then cover each dog with a slice of Swiss cheese. Cover the grill to melt the cheese. When cheese is melted place the dogs, cheese-side-down into the buns (toasted or not, although I prefer toasted).

Then bring on the toppings! First put a goodly amount of that amazing sauce on the hot dog, add a generous portion of sauerkraut, finishing it off with a yummy slice of a dill pickle.

And dig in!! SO good!! This will not be the last time we make these!

You will LOVE them!

I didn't think I could be hungry for a hot dog at 9 am, but now that is all I can think about! LOL! YUM, that sounds good. I can't wait to try the sauce out. Thanks for posting. I am glad you could link up with us today at the HHH and glad to follow you :) Enjoy your day!
