Italian Hot Dogs

Now this is the way to eat hot dogs!

Ready to make our sandwiches...or eat it just as is!
Yes!  This is the best way I know to eat hot dogs!  There's not much else to say about Italian Hot Dogs, except that my whole family loves them!  

If you've never had them like this, I highly recommend you give it a try.  There are other ways to make these too.  For instance, you can leave the hot dogs whole and grill them, then cover them with the peppers and potatoes; or bake it all together in the oven.  You can leave out the sauce or potatoes.  But, I stand on my earlier statement..."these are the best!"

My mom did it this way, and since I don't believe in "fixing what isn't broken"...I make them the same.  I just can't help myself! 


1 pkg. hot dogs (use your favorite brand)
6 medium potatoes, sliced
1 large onion, sliced
2-3 red, yellow or green peppers, sliced (or a combination of all three)
1/2 tsp. granulated garlic or 2 cloves fresh, minced
1/2-3/4 cup tomato sauce (depends how "wet" you like it)
1/4 tsp. basil
1/8 tsp. oregano (optional)
6 Italian rolls (heat them in the oven for a crisp crust)

Fry potato slices in olive oil until just starting to soften; add sliced peppers and onions.  Cook until all are tender.  Place in a bowl and set aside.

Slice the hot dogs into 1" circles, place in the same pan and let cook until heated through and a little browned; this takes almost no time at all.   Then, pour the rest back into the pan; stir gently to combine.

Stir in tomato sauce,  and seasonings; simmer until heated through.

Serve on warm Italian rolls!
