Hamburger hot dogs are a fun twist on a traditional recipe. Instead of serving hot dogs or sausages in a hot dog bun, make burgers! Ground beef is seasoned and formed into a hot dog shape, then served in hot dog buns.
As always, make sure that the ground beef in this recipe is cooked to a minimum temperature of 160 F before you serve it. Use a good food thermometer and make sure that you use it correctly. Put the tip into the ground beef patties from the side, not the top, for most accurate results.
“Don’t think that this is just a novelty dish, these “Hot Dogs” are seriously tasty. I recommend going to the extra effort to prepare some shredded lettuce, onions and pickles to add to the buns for that classic all-American burger taste.” —Noah Velush-Rogers
1/4 cup minced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons oil
1/4 cup soft bread crumbs
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound lean ground beef
4 slices Colby cheese
4 hot dog buns, split and toasted
Pickle relish, to taste, for topping, optional
Ketchup, to taste, for topping, optional
Mustard, to taste, for topping, optional
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Position a rack 4 to 5-inches from the top and heat the broiler on high. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the onion and garlic with the oil. Microwave this mixture on high until the vegetables are soft, about 1 minute.
Transfer the onion-garlic mixture to a large bowl. Add the bread crumbs, milk, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper, and mix well.
Work in the ground beef with your hands until just combined.
Form the beef mixture into 4 equal size logs, about 7-inches long and about 3/4-inches thick. Place the logs on a broiler pan.
Broil the patties, turning once, until a meat thermometer registers 160 F, 8 to 11 minutes.
Top each patty with a slice of cheese and broil until the cheese melts, about 30 seconds more. You can also grill the beef as you would hamburgers; turn so all sides are browned until the temperature reaches 160 F.
Place the patties in hot dog buns and serve with the pickle relish, ketchup, and mustard.
Glass Bakeware Warning
Do not use glass bakeware when broiling or when a recipe calls to add liquid to a hot pan, as glass may explode. Even if it states oven-safe or heat resistant, tempered glass products can, and do, break occasionally.
