It might be hard to believe, but I used to go fishing.
Not super typical, dirty, grimy, let’s catching dinner fishing but there was a fishing rod and fish typically ended up at the end of it, so it’s still fishing.
These fishing trips occurred a long time ago, almost twenty years, I bet, at my late aunt’s house, a little more than an hour from my house.
Those weren’t my favorite days with the long drive and then long day with lots of people around, but I did like their pontoon boat. My dad and uncle and I would head out to the middle of the lake they lived on and fish while my aunt and mom and grandma made dinner.
They were gorgeous, sunny Michigan summer days that I still love and being on the lake without waves or too much too worry about, particularly at that young age (I bet Mom was always worried about the boat!).
I had a small fishing rod and dad would put a small piece of hot dog on the hook as bait. It worked quite well as I remember catching a lot of scrawny fish that were always thrown back.
I really cherish those memories, even as I wish they were a bit more vivid. They were the good old days and I miss them.
It turns out hot dogs are good for a lot more than catching fish. Take, for instance, these Hot Dog Breakfast Tacos.
These are super fun and super easy to make, so perfect for a quick summer breakfast or breakfast for dinner, always one of my favorites. It all starts with pancakes and waffles topped with cheese. Waffles are kind of cool because the cheese melts into all of the nooks and crannies. A hot dog goes on and then a piece of one of my signature one minute omelets.
It does not get easier than that. So let’s make some memories this summer and enjoy some hot dogs.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Slice each hot dog down the center, but do not cut all the way through. Arrange the hot dogs on a foil lined tray. Bake for about 15 minutes, until slightly crispy.
- Divide the egg substitute equally among two microwave safe bowls. Cook for 2-3 minutes in the microwave on high until puffy and just cooked through.
- Cook the pancakes and/or waffles according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Top each cooked waffle or pancake with a slice of cheese, and a hot dog. Cut the microwave omelets into pieces and place on top of the hot dogs. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Tacos may also be frozen, wrapped in plastic and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
