Sloppy Dogs | Taste and Tell
Growing up, we had a rotation of recipes that my mom would make.  One of those meals – and one of my favorites – was sloppy joes.  I can imagine that most kids had sloppy joes as a kid, and now as a mother, I can see why.  Not only are they easy and fast, but they are pretty family friendly and relatively inexpensive.

I still love a good sloppy joe these days.  And I can’t tell you how these popped into my head – but once the idea was there – I had to run with it.  All I know is one day, I found myself thinking “what about sloppy joe on top of a hot dog?”
Sloppy Dogs | Taste and Tell
Honestly, I had no idea how these would turn out.  But I figured that I love chili dogs, so why not sloppy joe dogs?  Luckily the experiment was a big success.  I think these may have even been my husband’s favorite hot dog recipe.  He devoured 2 the night I made them, and then had 2 more for lunch the next day.  I can usually judge how successful a recipe is by how much my husband eats – and this one was a true winner!!

  1. Everyday I wonder what kind of hotdog you’re going to come up with next! I love a good sloppy joe. I haven’t had one in years!

    Oh yes – sloppy joes were on our meal rotation too and I haven’t had one in so long, definitely craving it now, especially on top of a hot dog!

    I just want to know where you got those scrumptious hot dog buns. They look SO good!

  6. These are brilliant. Why should the hamburger get all the glory of being a sloppy joe. hehe I like a sloppy dog! 🙂

  7. Chels R. says:

    This looks way better than the chili/sloppy joe dogs my dad would make me from a can when I was a kid!

  8. This is my kind of dog!! We are having a few varieties this weekend {inspired by you} for my little’s girl’s bday party. Definitely the Macaroni and Cheese dog, and the Mexican one, and most likely a version of this one too. I was also thinking of a BBQ type hot dog…can’t wait to see what you come up with tomorrow! 🙂

  9. This is the perfect man meal. My husband would kiss your feet if he saw these!

    I haven’t thought of sloppy joes in years! I used to just love those. Now I need one on the menu next week. Sloppy dogs…I like the idea of these too.

  16. Angie says:

    What a great idea! I love it!

  17. Loving your blog and Hot Dog Week! My family loves hot dogs, so this would be a fun thing to try before the kids head back to college! We just had dogs at the Varsity in Atlanta during Tech orientation! New follower too! 30AEATS.com :))

  18. Great idea! I can see how these would totally work since who doesn’t love a chili dog which would be similar.

  19. Sasha says:

    These are droolworthy! And so is the rest of this site 🙂
