Coney Islands

TGIF and I've missed all of you so much, sorry about my unavoidable absence.
This is A.J.'s favorite "snack" food during football season. I kind of think he looks forward to football season more because he seriously chows down on these Coney Islands. I started making these for A.J. during our first football season after we were married and he hasn't gotten tired of them or me yet.
They are so simple and satisfying.
Here's all you have to do:
Makes 8 Coney Islands -
1 package of hot dog wieners
1 package of hot dog buns
1/2 medium red onion diced
16 oz. your favorite chili (no beans)
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Pre-heat oven broiler. Line baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup.
Heat chili of over heat. Place buns on baking sheet, place heated wieners inside of each bun. Sprinkle diced onion over each hot dog. Ladle a generous helping of chili over each hot dog and then sprinkle with cheese.
Heat under broiler until cheese has melted.
It's just as man pleasing and so not healthy as it looks.

You're so cute, "he hasn't gotten tired of them or me yet!" He'd be crazy to :)
Missed you and hoped things are okay. You are so busy with those darling girls that we are just glad you show up when you can.
Have a happy weekend!

We sometimes do chili dogs, but don't broil them with cheese on top. I need to step it up!

April said...

These do look delicious!

GarlicBOSS said...

It would be nice if I could grab one through this screen...thanks

Helene said...

That must be so good with the cheese and chili. What a great snack to watch a game.

Greg C said...

That is my absolute favorite meal. Sonic has a pretty good one if you are in a hurry but home made is better. Its goodness in a bun.

Maria said...

Wow, those are some loaded dogs!

The Diva on a Diet said...

Not healthy, but definitely fun and satisfying! I'm sure my husband would happily chow down on these during a game as well. Perfect football food!

Welcome back, we've miss you too!

Oh Katherine, Not just MEN like these. I love them--but try not to eat them very often anymore. Of course, you could use 'light' buns, turkey hot dogs, 2% cheese and low fat chili... BUT--I'll be it's not nearly as good! ha

When I was in high school (late '50's), we'd go to a local restaurant during school lunch and buy 2 Chili Buns and a coke for a QUARTER.... Oh --the memories!

Hugs,
Betsy

Nothing like the decadent snacks of football season! I like the food a lot more than actually watching football. ;)
