Mac and Cheese with Hot Dogs Recipe

This Mac and Cheese with Hot Dogs Recipe is a very simple recipe that can be put together rather quickly. I was just looking for something a little different than the conventional Mac and Cheese recipes. I followed the recipe as written and it was very good. The original recipe called for beer, but I substituted chicken broth in place of it. The flavor of the hot dogs means a lot in this recipe; I would use all beef if possible.

If you’re in the mood for something a little different, give this Mac and Cheese with Hot Dogs Recipe a try-it’s well worth the effort.



1 pound elbow macaroni

Salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (divided)

2 tablespoons all- purpose flour

1/2 cup chicken broth

2 cups milk

1 generous tablespoon spicy mustard

2 generous tablespoons ketchup

Chicago Hot Dog


I was so excited when I was chosen by Glam and Hebrew National hot dogs to host a hot dog party. All Hot Dogs are not created equal, and it doesn’t matter how good the hot dog recipe is; if you don’t have a good all beef hot dog when you create it, you may not like the results.  Hebrew National Prides itself on being made with premium cuts of 100 percent kosher beef.

In my opinion they lived up to their name. The quality was excellent, and combined with the Three of the Best Hot Dog Recipes below where delicious. Usually when we have hot dogs at a party or cook out I will concentrate on one Hot Dog Recipe, but I took this opportunity to present all three. The Chicago Style Hot Dog Recipe is my son’s favorite because it is covered with delicious condiments, my Wife loves the Nacho Dogs Recipe, because of the homemade Guacamole topping, combined with the sliced pickled jalapeno slices. For me I like all three, but the Frito Dogs recipe is my favorite. The combination of a good hot dog, grilled, than covered with chili, cheese, and corn chips, is an excellent combination.

I have created all three recipes in recipe format so you can print them all, or just one at a time as you choose.

With the 4th of July coming up get prepared to fire up the grill, or lite a camp fire –get yourself some good quality Hot Dogs like Hebrew National, and give one, or all Three of the Best Hot Dog Recipes a try.

Hebrew National is also sponsoring a Facebook photo contest called “Snap & Share” giving you a chance to win a weekly grocery store gift card prize for all their summer BBQ needs. There’s also a grand prize ball game trip to New York City for two! Click Here for Details and to Enter.

Chicago hot dog recipe


Chicago Style Hot Dogs Recipe


1 all-beef hot dog

1 tablespoon yellow mustard

1 poppy seed hot dog bun

1 tablespoon sweet green pickle relish

1 tablespoon onion (chopped)

4 tomato wedges

1 dill pickle spear

2 sport peppers

Celery salt


1. Cook hot dog on grill or over open fire. Move them to a warming rack or warming oven. (The original Chicago styled is boiled for about 5 minutes)

2. Place hot dog on a steamed bun. Add condiments in this specific order- yellow mustard, relish, onion, tomato wedges, dill pickle spear, and celery salt. The tomatoes should be placed between the hot dog and the top of the bun. The dill pickle spear should be placed between the hot dog and the bottom of the bun.

Note: Sport peppers and poppy seed buns can be very hard to find-I substitute Sweet Banana Wax Peppers and it works out very well.
