Cubano Hot Dogs | www.tasteandtellblog.com

I love hot dogs. I know it’s probably not the “cool” thing to like hot dogs, but I do. I really do. There is something about a hot dog that just makes you happy. Just think about when you eat hot dogs. Camping = fun. Backyard barbecues = fun. Baseball games = fun. Tell me that I get to have a hot dog for dinner, and I’m one happy girl.

I also love Cuban sandwiches. Have you ever had one? Typically, they are made with ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, mustard and pickles. Those flavors are just magic together for me. (Remember these Cuban Quesadillas? Yum!)

So what do you get when you combine a hot dog with a Cuban sandwich? One delicious dinner!! When I saw Rachael Ray make these on her talk show, they immediately went onto my “to make” list. I’m just sad that I waited so long to make them, because these really were spectacular. And dinner in 15 minutes doesn’t hurt, either!!

Hot dogs – do you love them or hate them?

  1. I’m with you on this gal! I just love a chili cheese dog. I dont eat them much anymore because it’s so hard to find “natural” dogs. But every now and then….just gotta have one.

    This idea for Cubans?? Awesome!

    I totally love hot dogs! There are several new hot dog restaurants that have opened in Columbus and they have some crazy concoctions! These look awesome! I just can’t wait to try them. Bob will absolutely go for them 🙂
    @Joanne-if you have a Trader Joe’s near you, they have all natural organic chicken hot dogs that you might like.
    Thanks for another “keeper”, Deborah!
