I love recipes that are simple, delicious, and relatively low in fat and calories, especially if they are warm and filling at the same time. I'm sure that comes as no surprise to you. This blog is full of hearty soups and stews, simply because I can't get enough of them!
I discovered this particular recipe a long time ago in a Taste of Home book, and it instantly appealed to me. I love hot dogs, and it just seemed like the perfect campfire recipe to whip up on a chilly night.
I was right. :)
It takes only about 10 minutes to prepare from start to finish, and oooooh is it good (at least for a hot dog lover like me). Plus, by using "lite" ingredients, you can slash the fat and calories, turning it into a pretty light-on-your-hips meal. It's like Beanie Weenie...only healthy!
