Hamburger "Hot Dog"


Hamburger "Hot Dog"

Hamburger Hot Dog
20 Min

It's a hot, no, it's a burger. But we thought burgers were flat...! Okay, it's a burger in the shape of a hot dog - with the condiments baked right in!

What You'll Need

  • 8 wooden or metal skewers
  • 1 1/4 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1/4 cup sweet relish
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs

What to Do

  1. Soak wooden skewers in water 15 to 20 minutes. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well.
  3. Divide mixture into 8 equal amounts, forming each part into a hot dog shape about 6" long. Insert a skewer through center of each "hot dog" (like a popsicle). Cover and chill in refrigerator about 30 minutes or in freezer up to 10 minutes to help these keep their shape during grilling.
  4. Place "hot dogs" across grill rack and grill 8 to 12 minutes, or until desired doneness, turning after 3 minutes, and turning occasionally during remainder of grilling.



Sure, there's ketchup and mustard already grilled into these, but you can always use more for topping.

This same situation happened to me too! My family and I were camping up in northern Michigan, a pretty long way from any regular grocery stores. All the gas stations near there were out of buns since it was 4th of July weekend. We found some hot dog buns and did it like this, except for the breadcrumbs. I wish that we had skewer sticks - that's a great tip! We lost one to the grill grate somewhere along the way!

My husband made these and wrapped them in bacon before putting them on the grill. They were ummie!

I had to laugh when I read through this recipe We've made hot dog shaped burgers in my family since I was a fairly young kid - a very long time ago The practice arose when evening when Mom went to make our supper the package of buns in the freezer were hot dog not hamburger my sisters I just would not eat a hamburger served on toast the joy of a patty melt was or years in my future then She wouldn't put the ketchup mustard such in them But she would grate half of an onion mix it in with salt pepper a pinch of celery seed very finely crushed saltines Broiled or cooked up in the big old cast iron skillet absolutely fabulous If you are debating making this and you have kids or are a kid at heart - do it They are tasty and will serveRead More you up a smile too

Can these be baked or put under broiler? I live in an apt. where grills are not allowed. Thanks for this site!

Of course you can! Broil them for a few minutes and then roll them over and broil for another few. Cook them until your preferred doneness. Enjoy!

Put shredded cheese, onions, and Italian bread crumbs on the inside then roll them up! This is along with the mustard and whatever else you like on your hamburger!
