Oven-baked Buffalo Hot Dogs – topped with ranch dressing, buffalo mayo, cheddar cheese, blue cheese, and sliced green onions – perfect for feeding a game day crowd!
Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m not really much of a hot dog person. Or so I have always thought……but ever since I made these baked buffalo hot dogs the other day, I’m really starting to reconsider! As in I can’t stop making them, or eating them. I can’t get enough of them!
It all started when I saw nitrate-free “select” turkey dogs on sale at the grocery store a while back. They caught my eye (the sale, the turkey, the fact that they were nitrate-free….a triple win!) and my mind started racing with ideas. Ideas like mac & cheese dogs and baked bean dogs, taco dogs and pizza dogs. Which, for anyone who knows me well, sounds absolutely ridiculous!
Because anyone who knows me well knows I’m not someone who typically gives a whole lot of thought to hot dogs, and definitely not someone who sits around dreaming up new ways to use them. But. These Buffalo Dogs are amazing. They’re ooey and gooey and spicy and cheesy and loaded with flavor and comfort and all things good. And best of all, they’re oven baked. Which means they’re perfect for feeding a crowd!
They’re so easy, they leave me with plenty of extra time to drum up new recipes. And so delicious, they leave me wanting more every time! Which is okay, because….as you might remember….I stocked up! And not just on any hot dogs, but on healthy ones! (Healthy hot dogs…..that’s a thing, right??)
