Whether you call them hotdogs, wiener, or frankfurters; kids love them!
But even kids need a little variety with their wieners, so try these
recipes for a change of pace. I suggest using good frankfurters
that use quality ingredients. You can also substitute other
types of bun sized sausages for the hotdogs in any of these recipes.
