Hey y'all are you ready for the snow? Serious snow fall is happening up North and is expected to grace us way down here in GA with it's presence tomorrow. Whooo boy! I am so NOT excited about that let me tell ya.
Five years ago Atlanta was shut down, the entire interstate 75, 85, 285 and 20! All frozen solid, thousands of cars and trucks stranded.
Thankfully they are not calling for that tomorrow but just to be safe, I already bought my bread and milk. bahahahaa
WHY do we buy bread and milk? Is it so we can make french toast when the power goes out? I'm being silly of course, but honestly, why?LOOK at those chili dogs will ya?!!! OMG they were so freaking good and I know what you're thinking. WHY is she fixing chili dogs and HOW can they fit into a #WW lifestyle. Well, let me tell ya. You have to be smart about it.
Here's a few tricks. Look for the lowest point hot dog you can find. Uncured, all beef, no nitrates, sugar or corn syrup added. They are out there, but you have to look. I found mine at Aldi. (this is not a paid advertisement for Aldi but I do love that store!)
Instead of hot dog buns I used the wonderful #twoingredientdough and wrapped it around the dogs after I gave them a quick cook in my skillet, this helped to cook out any fat so the dough would not get soggy.
I also made my own chili. I used leftovers, a left over turkey burger and some leftover taco meat (that I used turkey meat in as well, shhh hubby doesn't know that) spices, some mustard and sugar free ketchup. BAM chili
I purchased this little mini loaf pans at a discount store, 5 pans for $1.50. This way the only dishes I had to clean up were from the dough and chili. That helped make this meal even better.
Now let me tell ya this, my husband and son went totally gaga over this. With each bite there was some comment about how great it was or what we could add to it next time.
1 package of all beef uncured nitrate free hot dogs
two ingredient dough, rolled out and cut into strips
chili (make your own or use your favorite store brand)
cheese, shredded cheddar (I used a low fat version)
sliced pickled jalapenos
green onions diced up for garnish (optional)
Cook the hot dogs to help remove any excess oil/fat. Drain and allow to cool. Make the two ingredient dough (recipe HERE) roll it out and cut into strips. Wrap around the hot dogs. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.
Place the baked wrapped dogs in the tin. Cover with chili, cheese, sliced jalapenos a sprinkle more cheese and top with green onions.
Bake until the cheese is melted and all ingredients have heated through, about 15 minutes.
Be careful it's hot, but dang it is good!
