Reuben Dogs

Every now and then I get a craving that is so damn unhealthy. Yes, I have a foodie conscious.

Occasionally I 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 jalapenos on top, of course.

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
  • Sauerkraut
  • 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.
  • Serve.

These were literally so good I couldn’t take it. And the jalapenos on top??


Why not.


Sometimes you just have to give in and indulge.

  3. 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!)
