Chili Cheese Dog BoatS



  • 8 hot dog buns
  • ¼ cup butter(30 g), melted
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 8 slices cheddar cheese
  • 15 oz chili(425 g), with or without beans
  • 8 hot dogs


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).Leaving them attached, place the 8 hot dog buns in a 9 x 13-inch (22 x 33-cm) baking dish.
  • Cut a rectangle in each hot dog bun, making sure to stay 1 centimeter from the edges. Push down on the bread cut-out to compact it tightly into the bottom of each bun, making sure to press down on the bottom edges as well.
  • This will help create a larger space for the fillings and reduce mess.Mix the butter, garlic, and parsley in a small bowl, then brush the buns and their hollowed insides with the garlic butter.
  • Bake for 5 minutes to toast the buns as well as help the sides of the buns firm up so they don’t collapse under the weight of the fillings.
  • Place a slice of cheddar cheese inside each bun, then spoon a bit of chili inside each one.
  • Slide a hot dog snugly on top of the chili in each bun, then top with more chili.Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the cheese is golden brown and the chili has started to brown.
  • Top with fresh parsley, then slice the hot dog boats along their connected seams to serve.
