Dinner tonight ... hot dogs or hamburgers ...

PaulF | Feb 15, 2012 01:04 PM

I went shopping on Sunday and only bought stuff on sale.

We are a family of four, me, wife, son 16, son 20.

Bought steaks, pork chops, hamburgers and hot dogs. Like I said, everything was on sale.

We had the steaks with rice and a sauteed spinach and mustard green thing on Sunday night. Had enough leftover for steak sandwiches on Monday.

Last night we had the pork chops with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans with almond slivers.

So, tonight and tomorrow we are going to have the hot dogs and/or the hamburgers.

With the burgers, I was thinking of making a "lazy person's" loco moco. Serve them over rice with some gravy and fried eggs. Not exactly authentic, but something different than just putting them on buns with condiments. Though we do like them the traditional way as well.

Any other thoughts on what to do with hamburgers?

More importantly, what about the hot dogs?

Yes, we could do them on buns with condiments and sauerkraut. We do that all the time.

Anything else we could do interesting with them?

Sometimes we do shoyu wienies over rice. We could to "beanie wienies" with baked beans.

But I'm wondering if anyone else does something different with hot dogs? If it matters, they happen to be Nathan's dinner franks.

And, yeah, I thought about chili dogs (don't really want to do chili dogs because I'm at work and chili is one of those things that take me all day to make). And I could do bacon wrapped hot dogs, too.

But I'm searching for something else. Something more ... interesting.

Any thoughts?
