  • bread (2 to 4 pieces, depending on how big you want your sandwich)
  • butter
  • chili
  • hot dogs
  • cheese
  • onions
  • chili dog toppings
  • Cooking Directions

    Take two or four pieces of bread (depends on how big you want your sandwich) and butter the outsides. I use a griddle to cook these and place one of the pieces of bread on the griddle. I use left over chilli and cut up a few hotdogs. You can put cheese, onions, or any other chilli dog toppings on that you wish. Grill it on the griddle as you would a grilled cheese and then enjoy.

    Every time we get ready to have chilli dogs now my boyfriend asks for a chilli dog sandwich instead. You can serve it however you want we eat ours with chips or french fries .
