This recipe comes from an old Better Homes and Gardens Junior Cookbook. We used to love making them when we were growing up. Emily and I still get hungry for them and make them for lunch occasionally.
2 T. butter or margarine, softened
4 slices bread
4 slices American cheese
4 hot dogs
Spread softened butter or margarine on one side of each piece of bread with a table knife. Put buttered-side down on a baking sheet. Put a slice of cheese on each bread slice. Put a hot dog diagonally across each slice of cheese. With adult’s help, turn on the oven to 375°. It will start to get hot. Fold the 2 opposite corners of the bread over each hot dog. Push 2 wooden picks through the bread and into the hot dog to keep the corners around it. With adult’s help, put the baking sheet into the oven. Bake until bottoms are golden brown. This will take about 10 minutes. With adult’s help, remove the baking sheet. Turn off the oven. Use pancake turner to put hot dogs on plates.
Makes 4 sandwiches.
