Hot Dogs with Cheddar and Sautéed Apples

  • Serving: 6 Servings

The combination may sound a bit odd; however, cheddar and apples make an excellent pair topped on hot dogs.


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 large Granny Smith apples - peeled, halved cored and cut into scant 1/2-inch wedges
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 6 hot dogs
  • 6 long pretzel rolls or hot dog buns, split
  • 3 ounces thinly sliced sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Place the butter in a sauté pan over medium heat, add the apples and sauté for 5 minutes. Sprinkle the sugar over the apples and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook the mixture for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, and then sprinkle in the cinnamon. Remove the pan from the heat and cover to keep warm.
  2. Place a grill pan over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot add the hot dogs and cook for 5 minutes until browned.
  3. Immediately transfer the hot dogs to the rolls and top with the cheddar cheese and the apples. Serve immediately.
