Homemade hot dogs are pretty easy to make, if you've tried your hand at sausage making. If you like hotdogs, this is your bag - as you can control exactly what goes into them. I love a little chilli and melty cheese in mine. They work great with Jalapeños that you can buy in jars in all regular supermarkets!
