So how often does this happen? You have ground beef but no hamburger buns. You have hot dog buns but no hot dogs. What’s a Chicklet to do?
The Beef Dog.
Okay, I admit. I had some sleazy names for this at first, Hot Beef being one of them. I kept thinking of the movie quote with a hot beef injection. And I was feeding this to my kids! Making it also was pretty sleazy. I put cheese sticks in the middle, giving it a … I’m just going to stop there. Sleazy.
So how do you make it? Take your ground beef and season it the way you like it. Then roll it like you’re making patties, and then roll it between your hands to elongate it. This is where I added a cheese stick, and then covered it with the beef. Just a note – I used a cheese stick half, done the long way. And these Beef Dogs are pretty dense, so I’d use maybe a fifth of a pound for each one. A quarter pound was way too much.
I cooked them in a frying pan for about five minutes for the top and five for the bottom, and a couple extra minutes on each side. Served it up on a hot dog bun with avocado and french fries.
Eat and enjoy!
Now you tell me of a time where you used what you had instead of what you needed. Give me more sleazy things to cook!
