Every now and then I get a craving that is so damn unhealthy. Yes, I have a foodie conscious.
Occasionally I really want a hot dog.
I said it.
I also have a habit of taking something very plain-Jane and making it so very not plain. It’s the only way I really know how to eat. I just can’t do plain. If I’m going to make it, it won’t be a simple ass hot dog with ketchup.
I love Reubens, and they have been on my mind lately…and I’m craving a hot dog. So, what does one do?
One makes a Reuben Hot Dog.
And she throws jalapeños on top, of course.
Here’s your printable –
Reuben Hot Dogs
- 1 package beef hot dogs
- 3 tbsp mayo
- 2 tbsp ketchup
- 1 jalapeno, diced
- 6 dill pickle chips, diced
- 1 tsp seasoned salt
- Baby Swiss cheese, shredded
- Hot dog buns
- Extra jalapeno slices
- Grill hot dogs until done; keep grill hot.
- Mix mayo through seasoned salt in a small bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
- Place hot dogs in buns and top with cheese and put back on the grill and cover until cheese melts.
- Add sauerkraut, dressing and jalapenos.
These were literally so good I couldn’t take it. And the jalapeños on top??
Sometimes you just have to give in and indulge.

Loving the sauerkraut with the jalapeños on this dog, see you have veggies on it. That makes it healthy, right? 🙂

Not fair! It’s just not fair that you took a bite from that gorgeous Reuben Dog and didn’t offer any to me! (I love Reuben Dogs too!)
