Well, the fact that the thermostat is reading 85 degrees INSIDE MY HOUSE tells me that summer has arrived! I’ve been pretty clear about how I feel about the heat. (I hate it) But, I don’t hate summer. In fact, I LOVE summer. Just not the high temps. I love the free time with my family, day trips, road trips, vacations. Swimming, sprinklers, playing in the yard. Oh, and I can’t for get the food. I LOVE summer food. Grilling, picnics and parties, filled with yummy summer salads, burgers and hot dogs, steaks and kebobs, s’mores!!
I love the traditional recipes, but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up a bit. We have a few cook-outs on our calendar, including a big Memorial Day party, and I am working on a few new recipes to prepare. One of those recipes is for Stuffed Pepper Hot Dogs!! This is a twist on two of Dave’s favorite classics. Stuffed Peppers, and good ol’ hot dogs! I knew they’d be a hit when I casually mentioned the idea to Dave. The conversation went like this:
Me: “I’m thinking of making hot dogs for dinner.”
Him: “Ok, that’s fine, that’s easy, sounds good.”
Me: “But, I thought I’d try something different and make stuffed pepper hot dogs.”
Him: “OH MY GOSH! YES! YES MAKE THOSE!!”
So, off to Walmart I went to grab the ingredients. I grabbed a pack of Bun Length Hebrew National® Franks because they are a family favorite! And a can of Hunt’s® Diced tomatoes! I love the convenience of Hunt’s, and they have some many varieties to fit any recipe! And Dave needed another bottle of Gulden’s® mustard!
You will need:
- Hebrew National® Franks (pack of 6)
- 1 can (14.5 oz) of Hunt’s® Diced tomatoes (I used the Fire Roasted Garlic for some extra flavor!)
- 2 fresh bell peppers (we used one orange and one green)
- 1 cup (dry) white rice
- salt, pepper, seasoning to taste
- hot dog buns
- Gulden’s Mustard®
Prepare your rice according to package directions.
Add rice, tomatoes, and peppers into a pan with a bit of oil.
Stir the ingredients together, and let cook over medium-low heat until peppers start to soften just a bit. (if you like your peppers softer, you can cook them on their own, until soft, then add the rice and tomatoes)
While that is cooking, you can prepare your hot dogs however you prefer (we like them on the grill) Slice the hot dogs down the middle.
Remove the rice mixture from heat, and then…
…load those hot dogs with the pepper, rice, and tomato mixture!! This recipe will make enough filling for about 6 hot dogs, but you can easily double (or triple or quadruple!) the recipe to make enough for your entire cook out guest list!
Don’t forget to top your Stuffed Pepper Hot Dogs with Gulden’s Spicy Brown Mustard!! Note: This recipe is Kosher, but if you do not keep Kosher, you can add cheese like mozzarella or Parmesan
This recipe was an even bigger hit than I had expected. Dave absolutely loved these Stuffed Pepper Hot Dogs and I think they’ll become a summer staple around here. I can’t wait to make them to share at our Memorial Day party!
