Finally, the goslings are sleeping so we can begin our mellow Monday afternoon.
I am always surprised what recipes I find for slow cookers. There are "a million" of them out there. Today's recipe comes from Busy Cooks at About.com. Crockpot Chili Dogs! Did you know you'll be enjoying one of the Top 10 Summer Crockpot Recipes. Who would'a thunk you could make these in the slow cooker. Now that I think about it, chili and hot dogs do say summer.
- 6 hot dogs or Polish sausages, fully cooked (I use the Jenny-O Turkey Hot-Dogs)
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 (14-ounce) can ready to eat chili (I use the 98% Fat Free by Dennisons)
- 6 hot dog buns, split
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1-1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Place hot dogs, onions, and garlic in 4 quart slow cooker. Top with chili. Turn crockpot on to low and cook for 4-6 hours until hot dogs are hot and tender.
Spread butter on buns and toast. Assemble sandwiches by placing a hot dog in the bun, top with some of the chili, and add cheese. Serve immediately.

Freeto boats are a regular meal around here, so we always have chili and with a four year old boy you know I always have hot dogs. Now Sister-In-Law Goose makes a killer Chili Dog Casserole, so I'm hoping this one can at least compare.
I hope you enjoyed your Father's Day celebrations and stayed cool - we had a great day!
