Buffalo Chicken Hot Dogs

It’s finally football season, and my wife and I (and I think the kids) get excited about game day. It’s one of those days where we can finally slow down, do a quick cleaning of the house in the morning, make it to church if we are lucky, and get back in time to make some great food and watch the game. I’m responsible for game day food, and well all of the food planning every day of the week, and I’m very comfortable with that. Game day food, to me, is built around comfort food. Whether that is a simple bowl of chili, or a hot dip, or heck, even nachos, it is truly right up my alley.

This past week, I really had my mind on buffalo chicken wings, or heck anything buffaloed. I simply love that spicy, and tangy sauce, coated on a chicken wing, however I did not want to fry or bake up chicken wings, knowing that my wife would not participate in that excitement. So as I thought of things like my loaded buffalo chicken potato skins, as well as the buffalo chicken dip, I knew I was in trouble and had to come up with a quick fix to cure my craving. This is where my idea of buffalo chicken hot dogs came into place.

Buffalo Chicken Hot Dog Recipe

Let’s get started on these great game day hot dogs.

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole chicken hot dog
  • 1 hot dog bun, sliced
  • 2 tbsp Frank’s Red Hot
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tbsp celery, thinly sliced
  • celery leaves, torn (optional)
  • water

Start by adding enough water to a skillet, and add that to a stove set on medium-high heat. Add your chicken sausage. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and cook for about 10 minutes.

During this time, add the Frank’s Red Hot and butter to small sauce pan and melt on a temperature.

How to make buffalo chicken hot dogs

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and add in the hot dog bun. I was going for a light toast, just to add that texture that you might get from the crunch of a crispy chicken wing. After a few minutes, check your bun, and once it is lightly toasted, remove it from the oven.

To make the buffalo chicken hot dog, add the chicken sausage to your bun.

Pour the hot sauce all over the hot dog, and top with the blue cheese, and celery.

Dig in.

This buffalo chicken hot dog was awesome. I did not have hot sauce all over my fingers as you would expect when eating chicken wings, and the sauce along with the sweetness of the chicken sausage and bite from the blue cheese just sold me. I will definitely be making these again. I hope you enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
