My youngest son is a huge hot dog fan but I didn't like to serve him these fatty salty treats full of preservatives very often so I embarked upon finding a recipe to make my own and thus have a little more control over the nutrition aspect of them. He's a teenager now and these are still a favorite treat requested often.
