National Sandwich Month — HOT DIGGITY DOGS!
With National Sandwich Month fast coming to a close, I decided to do a creative upgrade to the traditional HOT DOG as my last Sandwich Of The Week.
THE HOT DIGGITY DOG!
For my take on the Hot Dog sandwich I threw out all the traditional trappings — hot dog buns, mustard, sauerkraut, and relish! I started with Oscar Mayer All Beef Wieners (with no nitrates) and wrapped each in a slice of Sargento Natural Sharp Cheddar Cheese and then a slice of Oscar Mayer Ready-To-Eat Bacon (this way the cheese won’t melt away while the bacon is cooking) and placed them on a baking sheet and popped them into a 350F oven for about 15-minutes (or until the cheese starts to bubble.)
When the dogs were HOT DIGGITY, I removed them from the oven and placed each one on a slice of tomato on top of a half slice of sourdough bread which had been spread with Kraft’s Sandwich Shop Hot and Spicy Mayo. The other half slice of bread completed the sandwich.
I served with my special Ranchero Barbecue Baked Beans, chips, pickle wedges and stuffed olives and naturally ice-cold watermelon wedges and Mandarin Orange Iced Tea. It was perfect for a Sunday afternoon backyard picnic. It will also work for Labor Day picnics, especially if you don’t enjoy burning meat over a roaring fire.

And for theme music …
And that wraps up yet another National Sandwich Month!
