Easy, Crunchy Hot Dogs

"No need for a bun with these crispy flakes. The dogs are rolled in ketchup and mustard, then rolled in cornflake crumbs and baked. This is easy and delicious - kids love them! I grew up with these as my mother was diabetic and needed to cut down on bread (buns) so she made us kids these instead. For something different, try adding some Parmesan cheese to corn flake crumb mixture."

My 2 kids hated these - picked all the coating off of the hot dogs. My husband and I thought they were OK, but I won't be making them again.

These were pretty good! I used parmesan and crackers to roll the hot dogs in. I would make these again! Nice change from regular hot dogs.

These were great! Kids loved them! I used I used "Healthy Ones Beef Franks" and croutons for the crust and they turned out great. I will definately make this again.

I thought these were good. I think it is important to use the kind of hotdog that your family prefers. Its also fun to play with differant topping options as other reviewers have stated. This is...
