This recipe is great for kids' taste buds, but can be spiced up to suit the more refined taste buds of the adults in the house. Serve on a paper plate with favorite potato chips or have Mom make your favorite macaroni or potato salad.


1 (16 ounce) package hot dogs
8 slices sourdough bread
1/2 cup butter, softened
4 slices sharp Cheddar cheese, or to taste
20 dill pickle slices, or to taste


Slice hot dogs length-wise leaving the skin intact to hold the two halves together.

Heat a skillet over medium heat; cook hot dogs in the hot skillet until cooked through and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Arrange bread slices on a sheet of waxed paper; spread butter onto 1 side of each slice. Flip and butter the other sides. Place a slice of Cheddar cheese onto each of 4 bread slices; add pickle slices and 1 hot dog atop each cheese slice. Top each hot dog with a sourdough slice.

Heat a skillet over medium heat; place sandwiches, 1 at a time, into the hot skillet and cook until cheese is melted and bread is toasted, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Add weight to the sandwiches by placing a heavy plate on them while cooking, if necessary.

Slice sandwiches diagonally to serve.
